African cardinal laments evils caused by negligent fathers
Catholic World News - June 04, 2014
Inaugurating an archdiocesan year of the family, Tanzanian Cardinal Polycarp Pengo said that “the evils that we are experiencing today are mainly caused by negligent fathers [and] husbands who ran away from their responsibilities.”
“St. Joseph obeyed the voice of God and listened to it carefully; that is what fathers should do,” he said, according to a report from the nation’s episcopal conference. “Sometimes the problems we are facing in our families are left to happen because we do not want to listen to the voice of God.”
