Cardinal da Rocha: “Too much aggression in social media”- Also Carnival highlighted the violence

Light of truth

There is too much violence in social media and aggression “is shared by many Catholics present in social networks”: this is the alarm launched by Cardinal Sergio da Rocha, Archbishop of Brasilia and president of the Brazilian National Episcopal Conference (CNBB). “It is a grave sin to use the name of God or any religion to practise or justify violence,” said the Cardinal commenting on the message of the Campaign for Fraternity (CF) which this year proposes the slogan “You are all brethren.” As Fides learns, the Cardinal emphasizes that many initiatives can be developed to achieve the objectives of the Campaign and that every baptized person can give his contribution in order “to overcome violence and build fraternity and peace in the environments in which he lives.” But we must deplore the growing violence “shared by many Catholics in social net-works,” he remarked.

“It is urgent to say no to violence on social media” he said, especially addressing young people.”
