The family is a gift. Children are born from an act of mutual self-gift; the family is the first environment where we are received as a gift and where we become a gift to another.
The family is faced with serious challenges in today’s environment which is becoming increasingly characterized by secularism, relativism, and a highly technological culture that threatens authentic family connections, among others.
Strong families begin with strong marriages. Strong marriages allow the light of the family to shine more brightly as it illuminates the way for the children and the future generations, and for other families around it.
