Friday, 10 October 2014 14:57

Bishop Mulenga who encouraged young men to have courage of marriage and within the Catholic Church expressed concern that God’s plan for marriage of Man and woman is being changed to mean that even same sex can be in union as husband and wife.
“Young women are saying the young men in the Catholic Church are not courageous to marry them that’s why they are marrying from outside. Young men become courageous and take care of the family and stick to what it means to be a family” He said. “When the world says, man can marry fellow man or woman to woman

POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR BISHOPS’ OPENNESS
Tuesday, 07 October 2014 14:28

Pope Francis has called Bishops attending the extra-ordinary synod in Rome to ‘speak clearly, listen with humility, and accept with an open heart’ to the challenges families are facing today. 
Welcoming the ‘Synod Fathers’ and all the collaborators to the Third Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on October 6, 2014 on “Pastoral challenges to the family in the context of evangelisation,” Pope Francis said that cardinals or archbishops or bishop should not be afraid to speak their mind. They should not say a thing just out of respect for the Pope or thinking perhaps that the Pope thinks differently. “Therefore, I ask you of you”, insisted Pope Francis, “these two attitudes of brothers in the Lord: speak with parrhesia and listen with humility. And do so with great tranquillity and peace, because the Synod always takes place ‘cum Petro et sub Petro’, and the presence of the Pope is a guarantee for all and a protection of faith.”

FAMILY NOT OUT-DATED MODEL
Tuesday, 07 October 2014 14:42

Peter Cardinal Edo, Rapporteur General of the Synod of Bishops has said on Monday October 6, 2014 that the family is not an out-dated model, and Catholics should defend it from the sins that call into question and often destroy the traditional family.
Speaking at the presentation of “Report prior to discussion”, a 14-page  “relatio ante disceptationem”, Peter Cardinal  Erdo of Esztergom-Budapest,  said: “today, the family is certainly encountering many difficulties, but it is not an out-dated model, because of a widely diffused indication among the young of a renewed desire to form a family.”  Cardinal Erdo challenged the synod to try to bring back to today’s world the attractiveness of the Christian message about marriage and the family. This mission should be fulfilled in “highlighting the joy” given by living Christian teachings, and at the same time “to respond, in a true and charitable way, to the many problems which have a special impact on the family today”, Cardinal Erdo said.
