Synodality South Africa: Focus on Broken Families
“Several themes have been raised. The first is marriage and family life. We need to stabilize family life; we need to repair broken families. If we don’t do that, the unhappiness tends to perpetuate itself in the children in those families”, Archbishop Tlhagale told ACI Africa during the Wednesday, May 11 interview.
He added, “It’s important from time to time to renew family bonds, so families can become aware of their responsibilities and challenges and how to respond to those challenges; renewal of marriage, and family life is extremely important.”
The South African Catholic Archbishop said the Synodal process is also giving space to young people “so that their voices are heard and that they are also seen and participate in church activities.”
