Knowing Christ & His Message through Scripture, the Catechism, & the Catholic Church

Families – standing strong together

Pope Francis recently addressed over 500,000 people at the opening of the 37th National Convocation of the “Renewal of the Spirit” in Rome. Speaking about families he noted:

Families are the domestic Church, where Jesus grows; he grows in the love of spouses, he grows in the lives of children.

That is why the enemy so often attacks the family. The devil does not want the family; he tries to destroy it, to make sure that there is no love there.

Family is the best place to progress - they allow for our imperfections, & love us anyway!

May the Lord bless families and strengthen them in this time of crisis when the devil is seeking to destroy them.

How is life in your family?

Is your home a place of safety & security – both physically & emotionally?

Is your home a place where mistakes can be made, but members still know they are loved?

Is God part of each day? Do all members know the love of Jesus, and that He is there for all of you – in good times and in bad – in plenty & in need?
