Pope Francis "is worried" about Nicaragua and constantly asks about the crisis, says Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes

On Saturday, June 30, Pope Francis will receive Cardinal Leopoldo José Brenes Solorzano, Archbishop of Managua, President of the Episcopal Conference of Nicaragua and of the Commission for National Dialogue in audience, together with Mgr. Rolando José Álvarez Lagos, Bishop of Matagalpa and member of the same Commission.

Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes, Nicaragua’s messenger of peace. Pope Francis “is worried” about Nicaragua and constantly asks about the crisis.

The journey of Cardinal Brenes is motivated by his presence at the Consistory of Cardinals convened by the Holy Father for the appointment of new Cardinals, but during a private audience he will inform the Pope about the “painful situation that the Nicaraguans live” and on the dialogue proposed by the Catholic Church and supported by the trust of the population, as stated in the statement sent to Fides by the Episcopal Conference of Nicaragua (CEN).

“During their absence – continues the communiqué – Mgr. Bosco Vivas Robelo, Bishop of the diocese of León, will assume the presidency of the Commission for National Dialogue”.

Unfortunately, there are episodes of violent repression against the population, causing on average 3 deaths a day since April 18.

President Ortega continues not to heed to the Bishops’ request to stop this violence and respond to the request for early elections.

Stopping the repression is the first condition to continue National Dialogue, and the second is to the democratization of Nicaragua through early elections.
