Diocesan congress emphasizes love as the key for building stable families

.- The Diocesan Congress on the Family in Mar del Plata, Argentina, last weekend underscored the need to recover the authentic meaning of love as the key to building stable and lasting marriages.

According to the Press Office of the Diocese of Mar del Plata, the congress brought together 800 representatives from the diocese’s parishes, movements and schools.

During his remarks, Bishop Juan Puiggari of Mar del Plata said that although “the relativistic and secularist culture” of today “very seriously affects the family,” he emphasized the family's importance for society, saying that this is the “time of the family.”

The bishop went on to outline a series of elements that must be taken into account in order to restore the family, such as the “recovery of the religious dimension and value of Sunday; educating in the truth; creating avenues of dialogue; and especially not condemning the world of young people, but rather entering into it; spreading love through a spirit of solidarity, understanding and forgiveness.”
