Cardinal Cipriani calls on parents not to grow weary of teaching the faith

.- The Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, has described the Great Mission of Lima as an invitation to all the faithful to learn more about the Word of God, and called on parents and grandparents not to grow wear of teaching the faith to their children.

During the Mass he celebrated for the traditional process of the statue of the Lord of Miracles on October 28, the cardinal explained that the teaching of the faith “is a special moment in which the family extends not only to parents but to grandparents as well.”

“The love of God is much greater than the evil that threatens us.  For this reason, special care should be given to religious education, the teaching of the faith and good example,” the cardinal said.

He went on to stress that Peruvians want “education in the faith, respect for life, for life-long marriage between one man and one woman” and that the Church’s “heart is open to receiving all, but always teaching the truth.”

Cardinal Cipriani also called on Peruvians not to be carried away by violence and criticism.  “Let us seek out the truth, let us demand justice, but let us not allow policies to be put in place that underneath are intended to eliminate our lives.”
