… One Family at a Time

I believe that the cultural battles today are a direct result of a lack of joy-filled families.  The scourge of abortion, declining birth rates, increasing divorce rates, and a pervasive hedonistic lifestyle can all be traced to a breakdown of the family.  According to Blessed John Paul II in Familiaris Consortio, “the mission of of the family is to guard, reveal and communicate love.”  Today there is ...
