Haiti - Assassination of the President : Message from the Catholic Bishops of Haiti
This sad event marks a regrettable turning point in our history as a people, unfortunately dictated by the deliberate choice of violence made for some time by many sectors of the population as a method of survival and settlement of disputes.
Violence can only breed violence and lead to hatred. It will never help our country to get out of this political impasse which can only be resolved through dialogue, consensus, the spirit of compromise, for the best interests of the Nation, for the common good of the country.
Once again, the Episcopal Conference of Haiti invites all the sons and daughters of the country to go beyond their personal pride and their group interests to seek together, around a table, the Haitian solution long awaited by the population, dictated by love of Haiti and our values as a people.
Lay down the weapons ! Opt for life! Finally, choose fraternal living together in the interest of all and in the interest of Haiti!
May Jesus, through the all-powerful intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Patron Saint and our Protectress, come to our aid and free Haiti from the bonds of hatred and evil !"
