What is family?

Document Actions

Christ the True Vine

In the traditional sense, family is comprised of the parents and children in a household all brought together by Divine grace--the "domestic church". Additionally, it must be understood that the Church--the Body of Christ--establishes a broader dimension of family through the very real spiritual relationship established through the baptism that unites all of its members.  We are all one in Christ!


"The human family constitutes the primary and essential element of human society...peace in society will be a direct result of peace in the family." --St. John Chrysostom
