The Problem Stated The world we live in is observed to be a solid mass of matter. Even our own bodies are seen to be parts of physical nature governed by mechanistic laws, which alone appears to be all that is real.

The Word of God in the Family To look at Jesus means, above all, to listen to his Word. Reading Sacred Scripture in not only the community but also the home leads to enlightening the centrality of the couple and the family in God's plan and to understanding how God might enter into family life, thereby making it more beautiful and vital.
Despite several initiatives, however, it seems that Catholic families still lack a more direct contact with the Bible. The pastoral care of the family increasingly highlights the centrality of encountering Christ, an experience which naturally takes place when the family is grounded in Sacred Scripture.
Therefore, many wish, above all, that a vital relationship with the Word of God be encouraged in families, so that they might be orientated towards a true and proper personal encounter with Jesus Christ.

A Gift and Task The testimony of couples who fully live a Christian marriage highlights the value of the indissoluble bond of marriage and demonstrates always new ways of witnessing to marital fidelity.
Indissolubility represents a personal response to the profound desire for mutual and enduring love: Particularly important from this perspective is the celebration of wedding anniversaries in the Christian community so as to recall that, if a marriage is grounded in Christ, permanently living together as a couple is not only possible but also a beautiful experience.
The Gospel of the Family offers an ideal in life which must take into account a sense of the times and the real difficulties in permanently maintaining commitments.
