Love in the family is the first step to teaching the world about the love of God, said Cardinal João Braz de Aviz during Mass at the World Meeting of Families.
"Only by starting from love can the family manifest and spread and generate God's love in the world. Without love, we cannot live as children of God, as couples, parents, and brothers," he said Aug. 23.
The prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life, Braz de Aviz celebrated Mass for the second full day of the family meeting in Dublin, which is taking place through Aug. 26.
In his homily, the cardinal said that "today is a day of families and love. 'Love endures all things,' [this is] why strong marriages make strong societies."
