Summary: Father Juan Nepomuceno Rueda here argues that the practice of the Catholic religion is not incompatible with the construction of a “civilized” society. He advocates maintaining close relations between Church and state.
Historical Notes: After Independence, Liberal and Conservative governments followed the principle of patronato, which argued that the church should be subordinate to the laws of the nation state but the state should have responsibilities, often economic, to the church. However, depending on the degree of radicalism of the party leader, conservative governments generally tended to favor a privileged position for the Catholic Church.

Donor Notes: Father Rueda, prominent cleric, called for the unity of Church and State, giving the clergy much additional political power. - J.L.H.
