Bishops denounce disruption at Mexico cathedral on Easter

| April 26, 2011

Mexico City, Mexico, Apr 26, 2011 / 01:57 pm (CNA).- The Mexican bishops' conference condemned a “violent disruption” that took place during Easter Mass in Mexico City.

They denounced the incident in a message released April 25. This act is an attack on the faith of the majority of Mexicans and exacerbates the “climate of uncertainty, violence and lack of security that has become a scourge for Mexico,” the bishops stated.

The disruption took place Easter Sunday at the Cathedral of Mexico City. Seven people interrupted Mass by shouting epithets against the Church and destroying a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Just before the gospel reading, the individuals stormed into the cathedral with megaphones and began shouting insults against the Church and Cardinal Norberto Rivera of Mexico City. They were quickly detained by security guards.
