BISHOP Arnold Orowae of Wabag has delivered the homily at a service during the Catholic Bishops Synod in Rome
In his remarks, Bishop Orowae focused on the family as the place where most people come to know Christ and learn to be members of His Church.
“We encourage our families to search for the joy that comes from meeting Christ in the Gospel. It is there they will find this happiness,” Bishop Orowae said.
“Families should be encouraged to rediscover the Gospel, read the Good News with children in the home, and in the basic Christian communities….
“Today, many families are struggling with challenges and distractions. These have to be faced and overcome to build healthy families. The families are at their best when it comes to discussing and tackling problems and conflicting issues.
“The Church is grateful for the many Catholic families who believe in the gospel values, follow them in family life, teach the faith to the children, and set examples that other families can see and imitate.”
