Archbishop Rivas calls for tolerance

ST LUCIA

Archbishop Robert Rivas of Castries is preaching tolerance towards members of the LGBTQ Community. He has urged that persons be more compassionate and understanding to homosexuals.

He also echoed the sentiments of Pope Francis’s statements where he showed empathy towards the Community. “We need mercy in our world. God’s mercy is infinite and we should be merciful and also we should be very compassionate and understanding. The Church does not condone sin but the Church speaks to the sinner and calls the sinner to convert to repentance and also respect the individual,” the Archbishop said in an interview with a local news company MBC News.
