We need to put the family first again in our society.
For the Church, the family has always been what the popes call “the vital cell” of human society. For the Church, the family is the center of love where individual personality is formed and values and traditions are passed on to new generations.
“One could say, without exaggeration, that the family is the driving force of the world and of history,” Pope Francis has said.
Last week in this column, I talked about how the “Gospel of the family” was spoken by Jesus and written into the pages of sacred Scripture.
