Bishop Mulenga added that if there is love, spouses will not go to the extent of killing each other even in frustrations and most difficult moments like when they are unable to bear children.

The 2017 National Council for the Catholic Youth which opened on 23rd, November, 2017 is under the theme; ‘The young people, Faith and Vocation Discernment’.  It closes on Sunday 26th, November, 2017.

All the dioceses have been represented except Chipata Diocese.
