Importance of the Family


Last Friday Pope Francis addressed the 21 members of the Pontifical Council for the Family in Rome who were meeting to discuss the 30th anniversary of the publication by the Vatican of The Charter of Rights of the Family on the 22 October 1983.

We need all the attention on the family we can get because as prolifers we know that the stability of the family helps the procreation of children and therefore the stability of society.  Pope Francis is clear,

“A society that abandons children and that marginalizes the elderly will sever its roots and dark future,” he said.

“The family is founded on marriage,” the pope said. “Through an act of free and faithful love, newlywed Christians testify that marriage as sacrament, is the foundation on which rests the family and makes stronger the union of spouses and their mutual self-giving.”

The full story and more quotes can be found on If we stabilise  society through strong relationships in the family,  then the circumstances that lead to a desire for abortion will be reduced.  It’s as simple as that but not so easy to achieve when more and more society accepts casual relationships as the norm instead of committment and values through marriage.
