Love is our Mission: The Family Fully Alive

Aug30This fall the Church celebrates family life at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, PA. Each week from now until the September gathering in Philadelphia, the bulletin and website will feature a brief blurb from Catholic teaching about the family.  May these thoughts cause us to recommit to the mission of love given us through our baptism and the sacrament of marriage. 

This week’s thought:   Parents, make your children the apple of your eyes.  Do this by creating “the material and spiritual conditions for their full development; give them a solid basis on which to build their lives; guarantee their safety and their education to be everything they can be; pass on to them lasting values that make life worth living; give them a transcendent horizon for their thirst for authentic happiness and their creativity for the good; give them the legacy of a world worthy of human life; awaken in them their greatest potential as builders of their own destiny, sharing responsibility for the future with everyone.” (Pope Francis, 7-22-2013)
