Peru’s bishops call for ‘new battle’ against threats to life, family

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.
