In a letter delivered to the Pope, the President noted that:
"We must begin a process of sincerity within the Catholic Church to strengthen its structure and to respond to the real social interests of the people."Evo Morales invited Pope Benedict XVI to visit Bolivia in the future. Thanking the pope for the hearing, Morales said he hoped not the last.
He recalled that in 2007 sought a meeting by lobbying the Bolivian Episcopal Conference, but it was impossible.
"Now I had this opportunity to talk with the Pope, as always to hear his thoughts and prayers for the good of humanity," he said.
