Year of Faith: The Practice of Faith in the Family

As the family goes, so goes the nation, and so goes the whole world in which we live... The family is the "first and vital cell of society". In its own way it is a living image and historical representation of the mystery of the Church. The future of the world and of the Church, therefore, passes through the family.
                                                                                                                                                    ~Pope John Paul II, November 30, 1986

The Year of Faith, from this perspective, is a summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the one Savior of the world.

Pope Benedict XVI, Porta Fidei
