Dominicans living worst violence wave in history: Catholic Church
Santo Domingo.– The Catholic Church warned that the Dominican Republic is going through one of the most violent periods in its history in terms of public safety, and urged the authorities to assume the responsibility of dealing with such scourge.
In its latest edition of weekly publication Camino, the Catholic Church pointed out that today the streets are practically the place where Dominicans may cease to exist, because crime is growing at such a rapid pace that it leaves no room for peaceful coexistence.
"The death of a loved one is always painful and leaves deep emptyness. The pain eases as time goes by but the grief is deeper when the lives of your beloved ones are taken away by criminals," the bishops said.
