Catholic bishop calls for defending family values in Paraguay

Bishop Adalberto Martinez

 

On December 9th, Catholic Bishop Adalberto Martinez paid tribute during a Sunday mass to the importance of family and “the Church’s obedience to the Constitution, because it defends the family and even sets the stage for a better life." Bishop Martinez was referring to politicians who do not respect the church’s voice.
 
While placing the case of family preservation as a priority, Martinez recalled the need for its protection as the society’s basic component, and in that sense.  
 
Bishop Martinez argued that this involves economic security and work. The Church will always advocate these issues, because it is a big family that is working towards strengthening of society.  In this context, the bishop proposed the importance of the family since ignoring it will cause a social weakness that will further increase the presence of abandoned kids in the streets, out-migration of Paraguayans. National leaders should find ways to resolve the current societal challenges to Paraguay.  On the other hand,  political candidates should keep in mind the Church’s requests so they can address appropriately the social challenges once they become the leaders of this country.   Martinez also defended marriage between one man and one woman as the will of God.
