I have a question for you. How would you respond to women who receive beatings from their husbands and do not know what to do since he (the husband) is the head of the family? Would you tell them to be submissive and receive their beatings because that is God’s will? If they continue to claim that it is not right for them to be beaten should you continue to tell them to be submissive? How would you respond as a priest?
I have written 2 articles specifically on this subject. I invite you to read them for yourself.
- What should you do when you are tormented by a violent husband?
- What should you do when you are physically abused by a “Christian” husband?
Here are some other useful articles on this subject.
- What should we do if our father beats our mother and we are afraid to call the police?
- What should you do if your father beats your mother?
