Nuncio calls for respect for women in Cuba


During the Mass for the Feast of the Assumption on August 15, the Apostolic Nuncio in Cuba, Archbishop Luigi Bonazzi, exhorted Cubans to protect the dignity of all women and to treat them as daughters of God.

According to the Cubanet news agency, Archbishop Bonazzi reiterated “the need to honor women, who are treated like merchandise and objects of desire—something denounced by John Paul II.”

The archbishop “invited all women, especially those of our society, and with them all men, to always treat others, and to demand to be treated themselves, as children of God, in the same as Mary did, as it is through the men and women of the world that the Mother of the Lord desires to make herself present.”

Cubanet reported that the Nuncio prayed that Mary “would make us grow each day in the  practice of the Gospel so that we might become immaculate like her in the practice of charity, in joyful service, in loving others freely and generously, and in the confirmation of a great truth: everything passes and only love remains.”
