Speaking to Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), Bishop Jean urged restraint after recent protests reportedly left 17 dead and nearly 200 injured.
Demonstrations began across Haiti in July 2018 and reignited again in February and September this year, with members demanding for the resignation of President Jovenal Moïse after accusations of corruption dogged his time in office, which has seen massive inflation and scarcity of goods and other resources.
Bishop Jean has implored protesters to consider the national implications of their ongoing actions.
He said: “Destroying the country is not a solution. It is probably a way to express frustration but it is not a solution. We have to find the way to talk.
“People cannot go out. We are enclosed in our homes. All the roads are blocked. Even in urgent cases ambulances or emergency cars cannot move.
“We don’t have fuel. Markets are not functioning. Schools have been closed throughout the country. The situation affects the whole nation.”
He went on to ask for the Christian community to pray for the “dying country.”
Bishop Jean went on to criticise the government for it’s inaction as unemployment rates have risen to 80 per cent following the troubles.
“Despite our repeated pleas for nearly two years, Haiti’s politicians remain deaf. In July 2018 we already had a big crisis and the government did nothing.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
