Women's Day 2015



Year after year the 8th of march reminds all of the importance of accepting and respecting the women, the other gender with  dignity.Though many be the efforts taken to establish equality, the reality is glaring. Praise God for the women who have succeeded in their strife but many or the majority is still under clutches of prejudice and ignorance.

Generally, the day is celebrated to provide respect to whole women fraternity, appreciate them and to express love for them. As women are the major part of the society and plays a great role in the economic, political, and social activities, international women’s day is commemorated to remember and appreciate women’s all over achievements.

Make it happen is the theme and purple the colour.

Let us raise our hearts and pray that women who are the targets of mean exploitation repeatedly be given the right to be themselves as intended by God as equal companions to men and together bring God’s plan to fruition.

In the Church too let the voice and role of consecrated women be appreciated and given the due place is our prayer  today and always.
