Faced with the hostile situation, the parish priest invited the parishioners to continue praying “strongly because the evil one is attacking the Church. The evil one wants to destroy the power of the gospel, that word that is the truth of Jesus himself, that Jesus who wants to announce the truth of the celestial kingdom».

Citing the biblical story of the prophet Jeremiah who was the object of opprobrium, the prelate said that “today we are also being besieged, however we have the strength and presence of God in each of our hearts.”

Just as Monsignor Rolando Álvarez and other priests who are victims of government repression have called, Father Calero insisted that one must pray frequently “to overcome the snares of the enemy who day by day wants to take away our peace, wants to take away our love and wants to take away our gospel of Christ that is in our hearts.
