THE need for mothers to live up to challenges of motherhood in family upbringing has been stressed.

  The Parish Priest, St. Mary’s Catholic Parish, Ora-Eri, Aguata L.G.A, Francis Ekejindu made the remark while delivering a homily during a Thanksgiving Mass in the church recently.

 He urged mothers to use the occasion to reflect in their roles as Christian Mothers and make amendments where necessary to ensure conducive environment and happy Homes.

Very Rev. Fr. Ekejindu urged mothers to emulate the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is a role model to enable them triumph over their respective family huddles.

He extolled mothers for their active roles towards propagation of the gospel in the parish and solicited maximum cooperation from the parishioners to enable them actualise their set objectives.

He also noted that the banquet are meant for the rich and poor and urged them to endeavor to extend their gifts to the less privileged members surrounding them to give them sense of belonging.

He noted that Mary cared for Jesus and Joseph and urged them to be vanguards of their homes to enable them train their children with fear of God, stressing that Christ was able to carry his cross to Calvary. He therefore charged mothers to strive to forge ahead as worthy ambassadors and hearts of their homes and urged mothers who are in dispute with their husbands to endeavor to reconcile and live in peace to enable them jointly train their children with fear of God as expected .

He admonished parents and sponsors of those who were baptized recently and those who received Sacrament of Holy Communion respectively to always direct them to live exemplary Christian lives worthy of emulation, to put into practice what they were thought before Baptism or Holy Communion.
