The family is a masterpiece of the Creator, teaches Argentinean bishop

.- Auxiliary Bishop Sergio Buenanueva of Mendoza, Argentina explained that the family – founded upon the marriage between one man and one woman – is a “masterpiece of the Creator.” 

He emphasized that the family is “not the mere product of man’s cultural evolution.”

During the celebration of Immaculate Conception on Dec. 8, Bishop Buenanueva explained that for Christians, marriage between man and woman “is enriched with the grace of the sacrament.”

He expressed his concern about the attacks against marriage and the family in Argentina, such as the recent legalization of homosexual unions.  Only through God’s grace, he said, “can the family find the strength needed to continue being the home of life amidst the challenges of today.”

This can even demand “intense resistance to the dominant culture, which is particularly aggressive towards family bonds.”

Bishop Buenanueva then called on the congregation to turn to the Blessed Mother as “a sign of hope,” strength and comfort.
