As Congress introduces legislation to address Puerto Rico's financial crisis, San Juan's Catholic Archbishop is inviting prayers that all "work together to find a solution to the crisis that respects the rights and dignity of all sides." The Archbishop's thoughts come as the House Committee on Natural Resources is in the introduction process of a legislative solution. Congress holds a special hearing on Wednesday on the new legislation.
"I invite the people of Puerto Rico and all people of faith around the world to join me and pray for the US Congress as they consider action around Puerto Rico," said Puerto Rico's Catholic Archbishop, Roberto Octavio González Nieves, O.F.M. "We also must pray for Puerto Rico's leaders and creditors to work together to find a solution to the crisis that protects the rights and dignity of all sides. Finally we pray that any solutions will ensure that the debt is brought to payable levels, without further sacrifice to our social services."
