The Church’s Mission For The Family

At a moment of history in which the family is the object of numerous forces that seek to destroy it or in some way to deform it, and aware that the well-being of society and her own good are intimately tied to the good of the family, the Church perceives in a more urgent and compelling way her mission of proclaiming to all people the plan of God for marriage and the family, ensuring their full vitality and human and Christian development, and thus contributing to the renewal of society and of the People of God.

-Saint John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio

Continue to join us in praying for the Synod on the Family, which concludes this Sunday. May the Holy Spirit be present there, and may the Church be courageous and merciful in proclaiming the Gospel of the family.

Saint John Paul II, Pray for Us!
