Pope John Paul's trip to Central America will highlight the hard work required to sta- bilize countries even after a formal peace is declared. The bishops' conference of E1 Salvador has said the pope will find "dramatic and serious" so- cial problems that make real peace and reconciliation impos- sible in the country, even four years after the war ended. "We cannot live in peace while extreme poverty, lack of security and unemployment have such a cruel impact on so many brothers and sisters," the conference said in a Jan. 19 statement. In each of the countries the pope is expected to speak about the church's role in social and political questions -- a role that he has said must never ER D'LINCOLN - MERCURY JASPER ] 68 • Montgomery, Indiana 47558 Phone: 486-3285 become partisan, but must offer clear principles about re- specting human rights, helping the pDor, overcoming injustice and promoting the common good. Pope John Paul will be wel- comed to San Salvador by Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle, whom he appointed last April. When he was appointed, the archbishop -- a member of Opus Dei who had led Sal- vador's military ordinariate -- said he would work for peace and justice in the country, but would not continue his prede- cessors' practice of using the Sunday sermon to denounce human rights abuses and in- justice in the country. "The homily is not for mak- ing political denunciations," he said. "The priest must not speak about politics .... It's not my role to criticize anyone." Pope John Paul graphically illustrated the point when he visited Nicaragua in 1983. During the airport welcoming ceremony, the pope wagged his finger at one of the priests who defied church orders to leave his post in the Sandinista gov- ernment. • Later, during a Mass with young people, the pope got into a shouting match with Sandin- ista youths chanting political slogans. Nicaraguans' preparations for the 1996 visit seem to be aimed at "making amends" for the embarrassing incidents, said Paul Townsend, the coun- try representative for Catholic Relief Services in Nicaragua. Conditions for the trip are "most definitely better" than they were in 1983, he said, al- though there are "certain sec- tors trying to disrupt" social life before elections later this year. At least 15 Catholic churches or institutions have been bombed in Nicaragua since last May. Popular piety and social problems also will be the mix Pope John Paul will address in Venezuela, an oil-rich democ- racy that withstood two coup attempts in the early t990s.
