Cardinal Porras: I want to be remembered as someone who served his people

Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo is the sixth Venezuelan cardinal. He is 76 years old and a son of the Second Vatican Council. 

Many consider him one of the most illustrious personalities in the country. He received John Paul II on his two trips to Venezuela. And it has been characterized by staying with the people in the midst of the humanitarian crisis.

CARD. BALTAZAR PORRAS
Apostolic Administrator of Caracas
“I want to be remembered, simply, as someone who served his people and who did not take advantage of it. I am very grateful to my father who on the day I was made bishop came and gave me a hug, he congratulated me but said: ‘Son, remember where you come from, don’t let your fumes rise; remember that you are to serve others and not to be served ”.

He was a reporter, scout and without having turned 18, he began studying at the University of Salamanca, in Spain. Right there he discovered the root of his priestly vocation.

Apostolic Administrator of Caracas
“In those days you couldn’t communicate by cell phone or things like that, not even a phone call, if you wanted to communicate you wrote a letter. That experience helped me to understand that being alone in this other world is where I had to prove to myself that the vocation was not a family pressure or some convenience. Rather, being here I only said or I grow in this or I look for something else ”.

He is currently Archbishop of Mérida, Apostolic Administrator of Caracas and President of Cáritas Venezuela, not easy responsibilities in a country in humanitarian crisis. 

CARD. BALTAZAR PORRAS
Apostolic Administrator of Caracas
“In the Venezuelan Church we have gone through a series of crises and conflict situations, with the government, with society, with ideologies, and being the fruit of the Second Vatican Council gives me enormous great strength.”

He has lived the consequences and persecutions of these ideologies, but he trusts that his role is to remain there, precisely in service to others.
