Bishop Ruben Frassia of Avellaneda, Argentina, said this week the defense of the family and the human person are priorities for the State and always a guarantee for the development of society.
“The human person is at the center, just as the family, which is comes before the State. The State must regulate but not impose new criterion on the family,” the bishop said.
Bishop Frassia also noted that conversion is a life-long process and he warned that this does not mean that one journeys in the dark, as one must always be attentive to the signs God leaves throughout life. “In life there are many things that can distract us,” he added, “because today’s society is consumerist and leaves no room for the expression of true values.”
“Today society throws away whoever cannot produce. Just look at the old people, at children who are ill, at the handicapped. In some way we drive them out and the system makes us get rid them as if we lived in the times of slavery,” he said in conclusion.
