Families need heroes today.
Marriages need heroic intervention to rescue from the world what God intended marriage to be.
Children need heroic parents whose sacrifices give them stability and security in the home.
Heroes for the sake of love. That’s what this world needs today!
The president of the Pontifical Council of the Laity, Cardinal Stanisław Ryłko, issued a statement on October 3, 2014, to help us all focus our prayers and attention on the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Family that will begin on October 5th.
Cardinal Ryklo wrote:
Today more than ever, we need witnesses who live out the Gospel of the family to the fullest and with joy, and who show the world that it is a beautiful and fascinating way of life, a source of happiness for spouses and children. Here there is enormous scope for the prophetic mission of our laity. In the lives of Christian couples today it takes the courage of prophets, the courage to stand up to the dominant culture.
I highly recommend reading his entire statement. It’s a wonderful must-read! Download it here:
