Haiti - Religion : Enthronement of Mgr Guire Poulard
At his enthronement and the ordination of Auxiliary Bishop, Mgr Glandas Marie Eric Toussaint, in front of several thousand of faithful, religious and public figures, Mgr. Poulard has called his countrymen to support the reconstruction of countries devastated "More the time passes, the more we feel the urgent need for us Haitians to take the things in hand and not rely on external assistance" recalling the many promises that are slow to materialize. He also wished "a return to the tradition of generosity and solidarity".
The presence of both presidential candidates Mirlande Manigat and Michel Martelly has been noticed as much as the absence of René Préval and his wife for unknown reasons... Representatives of the Executive, personalities of the civil society, religious of various congregations and and committed laity had also made the trip.
Recognizing the enormous responsibility that he has now, the auxiliary bishop Mgr Glandas, implored God's grace and requested the collaboration of all. "The mission of Mgr Guire Poulard is like Moses in his time. He will have negotiate with Pharaoh, with Yahweh and with the people" insisting on the "fundamental human qualities" of Mgr Poulard.
More than one hundred priests Haitian and foreign, had come to greet their new pastor at the end of the ceremony.
