CHRISTIANITY is not a worldly invention, it is not even a collection of human mysteries. Christianity is the Truth, the Holy Word, the Inconceivable, sent to men by God Himself, the Almighty, the invisible Creator of the Universe . . . God will call to account the man who, once enlightened, does not testify in favour of the Truth. [St Justin Martyr, c.100-165]

TO HELP US advance along the path of human maturity, the Church teaches us to respect and foster the marvellous reality of the indissolube marriage between man and woman which is also the origin of the family. To recognise and assist this institution is one of the greatest services which can be rendered nowadays to the common good and to the authentic development of individuals and societies, as well as the best means of ensuring the dignity, equality and true freedom of the human person. This being the case, I want to stress the importance and the positive role which the Church's various family associations are playing in support of marriage and the family [Pope Benedict XVI]
