Chavista thugs attacked the Archbishop of Caracas on Thursday after he called for liberty and freedom from the oppressive regime.
The Marxist agitators brawled in the church while seminarians protected him from the violent leftist mob.
The mob attacked him during the homily of the Nazarine.
The PanAm Post reported:
During the procession of the Nazarene of St. Paul in the Basilica Santa Teresa, Chavista groups under the government’s control attacked the Archbishop of Caracas as he gave a speech encouraging freedom in Venezuela.
The aggressors pushed Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino, Archbishop of Caracas, while presbyters and seminarians sheltered him and took him to the sacristy.
Venezuelan journalist Alberto Rodríguez reported that officials of the National Police did not intervene to protect the archbishop or parishioners.
According to opposition leader Antonio Ecarri, during the aggression the Chavista groups also stole property from the church.
The violent leftists started brawls inside the church.
