Peru’s bishops call for ‘new battle’ against threats to life, family
Catholic World News - July 30, 2014
Recalling the example of national military heroes, Peru’s bishops called for “a new battle against selfishness, hedonism, and relativism” in a message for the nation’s independence day.
These enemies “destroy the natural and biblical image of the family, the basic cell of society,” “threaten marriage as a sacrament between a man and a woman,” and also threaten “the lives of defenseless Peruvians who are being formed in their mothers’ wombs,” the bishops said.
The South American nation of 31 million is 88% Catholic.
