Message of Solidarity for the Venezuelan People

The International General Council of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul expresses its solidarity with the people of Venezuela in view of the social, political and economic problems that their nation is currently suffering, and which have resulted in poverty and caused emigration.

In the same way, the President General, Brother Renato Lima, wants to send a special message to the Venezuelan Vincentians, asking them to remain firm on the Vincentian path, not to be disheartened or let their faith weaken; because we are sure that better days will come very soon.

We Vincentians from all over the world hope that the situation existing in Venezuela will be quickly overcome, that this sister nation will return to the path of democratic calm, peaceful coexistence and prosperity.

We ask all Vincentians to include a Hail Mary in their daily prayers, for the overcoming of the Venezuelan crisis.

Brother Renato Lima

16th President General
