"The Church is the sacrament of God's love. In the same way, the family is a community of life and love. It educates and leads its members to their full human maturity and it serves the good of all along the road of life. 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 pass by way of the family." - John Paul II
Every Human life has its origins in the heart of God
