.- Auxiliary Bishop Sergio Buenanueva of Mendoza, Argentina explained that the family â founded upon the marriage between one man and one woman â is a âmasterpiece of the Creator.â
He emphasized that the family is ânot the mere product of manâs cultural evolution.â
During the celebration of Immaculate Conception on Dec. 8, Bishop Buenanueva explained that for Christians, marriage between man and woman âis enriched with the grace of the sacrament.â
He expressed his concern about the attacks against marriage and the family in Argentina, such as the recent legalization of homosexual unions. Only through Godâs grace, he said, âcan the family find the strength needed to continue being the home of life amidst the challenges of today.â
This can even demand âintense resistance to the dominant culture, which is particularly aggressive towards family bonds.â
Bishop Buenanueva then called on the congregation to turn to the Blessed Mother as âa sign of hope,â strength and comfort.
