El Matrimonio en la mente y el corazón de Dios
Este domingo la palabra de Dios nos coloca ante la realidad de nuestro país para interpelarnos a trabajar a favor de la justicia y el desarrollo integral de los hombres y las mujeres que viven en México. Ante la polémica desatada sobre el tema del trabajo y las trabajadoras y los trabajadores, Dios nos habla hoy especialmente de la familia y el papel que debe desempeñar en la construcción de una sociedad sana, que la proteja por medio de leyes justas.
Lahore (Agenzia Fides) - "The news, continually increasing, regarding violence against Christian children are really annoying, disturbing. For Christians, it seems that living in Pakistan is more and more difficult. There are many Christian girls kidnapped, raped and converted to Islam by force and even killed as in the case of Amariah Masih, the 'Maria Goretti of Pakistan'. There are children kidnapped and killed for shady dealings, as the recent case of Sunil Masih or Shazia Bashir. Now the children are also accused of blasphemy, as Rimsha Masih. If children are attacked, it means that a limit of intolerable abuse and inhumanity have been reached": This is what the Dominican Fr. James Channan, OP, Director of "Peace Center" in Lahore, strongly committed to interreligious dialogue says to Fides.
Every four years, the Human RIghts Council of the United Nations is reviewing the implementation of Human Rights obligation by each of the UN Member States. Together with other faith based organizations, the Delegation of the Dominican Order is making a contribution to the second review of Pakistan.
