PONDER - The Family of Love
Transcript of PONDER - The Family of Love
“The family has the mission to guard, revel and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God’s love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church his bride.”
- Familiaris Consortio
The family in fact depends for several reasons on the civilization of love, and finds therein the reasons for its existence as family. And at the same time the family is the centre and the heart of the civilization of love.”
- Pope John Paul II
Letter to Families, 1994
Joel & Gemma Dayao with their children
Grows through personal prayer and family prayer….
Mary, Queen of Families,
we implore you!
Pray to Virgin Mary as ‘Queen of the Family’
- Pope Benedict XVI, Valletta, Malta
April 18, 2010
“Family prayer has for its very own object family life itself.”
- Familiaris Consortio
“The house of Nazareth is a school of prayer where we learn to listen, to meditate, to penetrate the deepest meaning of the manifestation of the Son of God, drawing our example from Mary, Joseph and Jesus. The Holy Family is an icon of the domestic Church, which is called to pray together.”
- Pope Benedict XVI

“Families which ... find themselves faced by situations which are objectively difficult ... Such for example are families of migrant workers; families with no home; incomplete single-parent families; families with children that are handicapped or addicted to drugs; the families of alcoholics; families experiencing violence; the elderly who are often obliged to live alone; ... the children’s adolescence, which can be disturbed, rebellious and sometimes stormy; abandonment by one of the spouses, or his or her death; ... suffering caused by ill-health, by the gradual loss of strength, by the humiliation of having to depend on others, by the sorrow of feeling that one is perhaps a burden to one’s loved ones, and by the approach of the end of life.”
The Family of Love
For the Lord sets a father in honor over his children; a mother’s authority he confirms over her sons. He who honors his father atones for sins; he stores up riches who reveres his mother. He who honors his father is gladdened by children, and when he prays he is heard. He who reveres his father will live a long life; he obeys the Lord who brings comfort to his mother. He who fears the Lord honors his father and serves his parents as rulers.
- Sirach 3: 2-7
