Weekly Note

Fr. Damian Zuerlein (November 22-23) Once the bishops at the Synod on the Family had discussed the situation facing families today, they then proposed some ideas about how families can be helped to reflect on during this year before they meet again. Here are some of the ideas:

First they place the church’s response under the banner of evangelization:

“Proclaiming the Gospel of the Family is urgently needed in the work of evangelization. The Church has to carry this out with the tenderness of a mother and the clarity of a teacher, in faithfulness to the mercy displayed in Christ’s kenosis. Truth became flesh in human weakness, not to condemn it but to save it. Evangelizing is the shared responsibility of all God’s people, each according to one’s ministry and charism. Without the joyous testimony of married people and families, proclamation, even if done in its proper way, risks being misunderstood or lost in a flurry of words which is characteristic of society today…Consequently, this work calls for missionary conversion by everyone in the Church, that is, not stopping at proclaiming a message which is perceived to be merely theoretical, with no connection to people’s real problems. We must continually bear in mind that the crisis of faith has led to a crisis in marriage and the family and, consequently, the transmission of faith itself from parents to children has often been interrupted…The Word of God is the source of life and spirituality for the family. All pastoral work on behalf of the family must allow people to be interiorly fashioned and formed as members of the domestic church through the Church’s prayerful reading of Sacred Scripture.

Then they offer suggestions for marriage preparation and helping couples through their early years of marriage. In these areas the church in the United States can be a leading example with our long experience in marriage preparation.
