Natural Family Quote from the World Congress of Families

 

 

 

“The natural family is the fundamental social unit, inscribed in human nature and centered around the voluntary union of a man and a woman in a lifelong covenant of marriage for the purpose of satisfying the longing of the human heart to give and receive love, welcoming and the ensuring the full physical and emotional development o children, sharing a home that serves as the center for social, educational , economic, and spiritual life, building string bonds among the generations to pass on a way of life that has transcendent meaning, and extending a hand of compassion to individual and households whose circumstances fall short of these ideals.”
