THE Catholic Church still has a lot of men to get married to, a priest has urged women in the church.

Fr Emmanuel Mubanga of the Archdiocese of Kasama, who is Parish priest at Saint Margaret’s Mungwi, urged Catholics to remain and die as Catholic Christians whether they are beset by challenges or not.

He said Christians should resist the temptation of going to Church after Church, seeking prosperity, marriage, employment and wealth but should instead hold on to what they believe in while waiting for God’s time.

“[You] single women in the local church be strong, be focused and continue praying. Persist in asking God about things you want rather than embarking on a journey of going from one Church to another. Catholic Church still has a lot of men to get married to,” Fr Mubanga urged.

He encouraged Christians to be strong and courageous to face whatever they encounter with prayers.

“Life is full of challenges, but according to God’s promise, He shall not abandon His people,” he said.

This was during the celebration of the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C recently.

The first reading came from the Jeremiah 1:4-5, while the second reading was taken from the First letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians, Chapter 12:31 to Chapter 13:13.
