President, Catholic Women Organisation (CWO), Lagos Archdioceses, Mrs. Philomena Omorodion has charged Christian women to imbibe the virtue of hospitality with a view to winning more women into God’s Kingdom.
Omorodion, who gave the advice during the CWO’s first quarterly meeting in Lagos, asked women to shun such vices as nagging, pride, hatred and laziness and put on Christ-like conduct of caring for the needy.
While commending women that have played the role of breadwinners in their homes, the CWO President, however, cautioned them to be very humble and continue to recognise their husbands as heads of the home.
She said: “I enjoin women to love and honour their husbands in every situation. Some women do not respect their husbands, especially if they are privileged to be the breadwinners. Whether they are the breadwinners or not, the Bible makes us to know that as Christ is the Head of the Church, so He has made our husbands the heads in the home.
“As women, it is mandatory for us to respect and love our husbands as well as the children, knowing that our children who would also be husbands and wives in future, are learning from our attitudes whether we know it or not.” The Parish Priest, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Anthony Okeke advised women to see themselves as pillars of the home and live happily, as he urged them to train their children, especially in the area of dressing.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
