As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live. Pope John Paul II
The family, so to speak, is the domestic church.
In it parents should, by their word and example,
be the first preachers of the faith to their children.
Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, #11
A family is holy not because it is perfect, but because God's grace is at work in it, helping it to set out anew everyday on the way of love.
John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio
"The Church is the sacrament of God's love...
In the same way the family is a community of life and love.
It educates and leads its members to their full human maturity and it serves the good of all along the road of life.
In its own way it (family)
is a living image and historical representation
of the mystery of the Church.
The future of the world and of the Church pass by way of the family."
John Paul II's "Homily," November 30, 1986
