What is every family’s calling?

Mission Lab

Every family’s calling is to share their lives with one another, with deep love and respect according to the Will of God. The family, or the domestic church, is the most sacred of all societies. In His love for us, God gives us life and the care we need as children through our parents. Character, beliefs, thoughts, and virtues should be nurtured by good, loving parents. The family members form a community and share their lives together on a deep, personal level. Through a truly Christian marriage, the family can function perfectly as a community which is open to the Church and to the world. Although problems and misunderstandings should be expected in sacramental marriage, for it is a union of two sinful human beings, Christ gives husband and wife the power to deal with these tensions, and the grace to destroy the sins which cause them.
