Marriage & Family Life

“The family, which is founded and given life by love, is a community of persons: of husband and wife, of parents and children, of relatives. Its first task is to live with fidelity the reality of communion in a constant effort to develop an authentic community of persons. ‚Ķwithout love the family is not a community of persons and, in the same way, without love the family cannot live, grow and perfect itself as a community of persons.”

Pope John Paul II (1981)
Apostolic Exhortation on the Family, #18
