December 17th, 2008

Fr. Oswald B. Firth, former director of Caritas/SEDEC in Sri Lanka, addressing the organization on the 40th anniversary of its foundation, called for it to support peace between the Tamil Tigers and the army: “people are exhausted with the war.” Noting that the forty years it has spent helping the population has brought the Catholic organization respect and recognition, Fr. Firth said that, “maybe this is the time when SEDEC could lead such a campaign calling for a just political solution to the crisis. Vision, wisdom and courage will be forthcoming once the initiative is launched. We need to trust in the goodness of people, that they all want peace for their families and for the country.”
