Church personality of the year in Nicaragua

From the on-line Spanish religious periodical “Religión Digital”, we learnt of the news that our brother, Monsignor José Silvio Baéz Ortega, OCD, auxiliary bishop in Managua has been nominated Church personality for 2016 in his country of Nicaragua.

He has been awarded this distinction for his constant, evangelical condemnations of abuse with regard to human rights in Nicaragua, but also for his devotedness as a pastor: as a person of humility, he loves the most poor and teaches all to love God and Sacred Scripture.

According to the afore-mentioned article, the exercise of his episcopal ministry has been increasingly appreciated not only by the faithful Catholics of Nicaragua, but also by those who previously did not support the Church’s stance on different issues.
