Defend Family Values, Bishop Mbatia Urges Parents

Rt Rev Joseph Mbatia, the Catholic Bishop of Nyahururu, has strongly called on the parents to stand firm and defend the family values.

Revealing the many deviations and disorientation that challenge the family in current days, Bishop Mbatia warned that if moral integrity is not upheld, there is a risk of more invasions of immoral values, reports CISA.

Bishop Mbatia was speaking during a celebration at Rumuruti catholic parish to mark the patronage of “Familia Takatifu” (Holy Family) where he reiterated the importance of family as the basic organ for the society. “A good family automatically implies a good society” he said.

Bishop Mbatia reminded the faithful that a good family is not build on income, pride, power advantage and fame but mainly on charity, responsibility and self dedication adding that: “Love is not built on artificial self giving to serve the family but sacrifice even if it is painful to the individual member of the family.”

Calling on the Christians to be vigilant on the issues of faith, the bishop said that marriage has an ordained purpose which is irreversible and warned on the dangers of same sex marriage

“Without the union of a man and a woman, there can never be children, there can never be a society of tomorrow,” warned Bishop Mbatia, “to have a child, man does not need a man, and woman does not need a woman, they need the opposite gender. This is a common knowledge that you need not go to university to understand.”

He criticized those advocating for same sex marriage as malicious and already defeated. “They are propagating a defeat as ideal. Let us be on the alert,” he cautioned.

In the same ceremony two couples took the Holy Matrimony sacrament and Fr Vaccari the parish priest was quick to challenge the newlywed couples to withhold the catholic principles as the only way for a harmonious living together despite the odds in life.

Fr Vaccari also called others to emulate the two couples.

“Many good Christians are taken aback by lack of sacraments” he said and called on parents to be reasonable in the demand of dowry which seems an obstacle to celebration of the Holy Matrimony sacrament.
