Benedict XVI also called on Colombian officials to look toward forgiveness and reconciliation in their plans to begin negotiations with the FARC rebel group.

“It was announced in Colombia, Norway and Cuba, an important dialogue between the Colombian government and representatives of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, with the participation of delegates from Venezuela and Chile, to try to end the conflict, that has afflicted this beloved country for decades. I hope that those who take part in this initiative will be guided by the will of forgiveness and reconciliation, in the sincere search for the common good.”
