Urbi Orbi Christmas 2013 - Pope Francis
The synod of the Family this past October was certainly a key moment in the life of the Church. It raised many questions, posed many insights. The image of family has changed in society as a whole. These new expressions of family challenged the Church to be more open, more understanding, more pastoral. Our reflection on family begins with one common note. Family is a gift. A family, no matter is structure is not complete without God being a central member to the family. God’s presence will be a blessing.
