Church should fight for the life, marriage and the family, says Peruvian cardinal

.- During his weekly radio program, “Dialogue of Faith,” Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne of Lima warned of the existence of a worldwide campaign to attack religion in order to destroy the right to life, marriage and the family, and said Catholics must put up resistance.

“Without the family there is no society, there is no globalization, nor economic progress, there is nothing; the family is the basic cell of society,” the cardinal said in reference to one of the central challenges that will be addressed at the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council in Parricide (Brazil), which he will attend.

“The Church, out of love of humanity, must wage this battle in order to stop the spread of campaigns that kill the unborn, destroy marriage and do not recognize the good of the family,” Cardinal Cyprian said, warning that “in today’s world there is a conspiracy to exile morality from public life, in the world of politics, in the business world and in the media.  Therefore now is the time to defend morality.”

The archbishop of Lima emphasized that Catholic parents “are called to make the home into a school of values.”
