This inspirational collection of documents from his years as Archbishop of Buenos Aires shows us how Pope Francis' understanding of the family and its central role in God's plan goes well beyond the consideration of individual rights and duties that so often characterize English-language family studies. For the Cardinal, the family provides society with stability and fruitfulness. It is the core where the individual gains self-awareness, experiences love given and received, welcomes new life and reveres the elderly, and learns how to deal positively with life's changing circumstances.
What Pope Francis wrote, in such clear and expressive words, makes plain his pastoral wisdom and evangelical love for the family and for life.
