Through a message to the Colombian people, bishops pointed out that a dialogue really requires to find clairvoyance again along with freedom of spirit, the sense of justice together with respect for the human rights of all, the meaning of equity and solidarity, the value of mutual trust and brotherhood.
It is necessary to believe that a dialogue is possible, although tense, irreconcilable stances -at first glance- seem they do not give rise to agreements.
‘Dialogue, yet difficult, is the only human way to solve conflicts, and its most valuable fruit is peace,’ said bishops.
They stressed that a dialogue calls for willingness to yield or concede for the common good, since it implies opening up to a sincere exchange of views, to achieve mutual understanding and to move towards points of contact that offer solutions to differences.
