Guatemala City – Like other Latin American countries, Guatemala also celebrates National Independence Day tomorrow, September 15th. On this occasion the Episcopal Conference of the country published a Message in the context of the “Month of Homeland”. Inspired by the verse of the book of Proverbs “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and reject not your mother’s teaching”, the Bishops invite to reflect on how to respond responsibly to the teachings of what is inherited, that is “how to live our civil responsibilities before God, so that justice and peace can become the basis for living together as a people”.
