Family

"Among the many paths of life, the family is the first and the most important.... God chose to enter human history through the family… which he chose to be born and to grow up in”.

In these introductory words from Pope John Paul II’s “Letter to Families”, we understand why the Church and indeed God himself places such a great emphasis on family life. It is through our families that we experience and practice love - that cardinal virtue which will never pass away – that essential characteristic in which we reflect our Creator and God who is Love itself.
