Chilean cardinal urges people to change their ways to dispel fear


Under strong security measures, Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati Andrello led the traditional ecumenical "Te Deum" service Thursday to celebrate Chile's national holidays and urged people to change their ways to dispel fear.

Before a metropolitan cathedral packed with government officials -- among them President Michelle Bachelet, congressmen and military -- and leaders of other religious faiths, the cardinal referred to the bombing at the Escuela Militar subway station that injured 14 people Sept. 8.
