Pope Pius XI On Christian Marriage

Pope Pius XI On Christian Marriage

Let it be repeated as an immutable and inviolable fundamental doctrine that matrimony was not instituted or restored by man but by God.

The Importance of Fathers in our Search for God (Father and Child)

The Importance of Fathers in our Search for God

These have been a tough couple of decades for fathers in particular, and men in general. [People] attack men’s identity and undermine the whole idea of fatherhood. In the process, women and children are hurt, families are damaged, and our understanding of God Himself becomes confused. Let me outline three criticisms, or problems, which make our times especially hard for fathers.
