Vatican Dicastery publishes book on family and ethical questions

.- The Pontifical Council for the Family has published a book compiling ethical questions related to family and marriage that have been addressed by bishops during courses promoted by the dicastery around the world.

The book, published in Italian and entitled "The Family and Ethical Questions," is the first in a series of three books that will confront moral issues related to family and marriage.

In the introduction, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, president of the Council, writes that during these courses, the more than 1,200 bishops who participated reflected on "the central themes of the pastoral mission in terms of the family and life and pastoral ethical questions."

"The twenty-five years of the pontificate of John Paul II, successor of Peter and the Pope of the family and of life," writes Cardinal Lopez Trujillo, "have given a global and historical dimension to the questions addressed in this volume and in future editions. For this reason, we want this publication to be a tribute to the universal pastor, example of closeness and passionate concern for the family, the domestic Church and sanctuary of life."

The Council has announced that the book will be published in other languages as well.
