She called women in the country to help in nurturing their children at a time that we have an abundance of radio and television stations , we don’t have to sit down for our children to watch just anything, Since there too much violence on out there on TV and our children having easy access to pornographic materials either from the net ,TV or in the books.
Mrs. Matilda Amissah Arthur said we have it a duty to ensure that our children watch healthy and educative programs and read good books.
She said we should be interested in what our children watch and do, since there’s too much compromise and integrity that has been thrown to the dogs, so this is the time for us as Christians to stand out.
Adding that we are accountable to the Lord for the family that he has entrusted to us ,so the need to help stop the indiscipline, laziness , fear, uncertainty , hatred , jealousy ,callousness, back stabbing , pretense , hypocrisy , immorality , idolatry, so that as Christians we will be different and that will affect our homes , communities and society.
She said she prayed that as they celebrate their Catholic women’s day, they would evangelize by deed and by word, not only on Sundays in the church but by every day of our lives in all that we say
