Sacraments

Healthy Families, Healthy Church.

Healthy Families, Healthy Church.

This past Sunday, December 28, 2014, was the feast of the Holy Family. The following is a reflection on the importance of the family in the Church.

Christ is the head of the Church. The Sacraments are the heart of the Church, constant, in rhythm, giving life to the body. Now allow me to suggest that the family is the blood of the Church. The family, founded in the heart, the sacrament of matrimony, is then pumped through the entire body, rejuvenating and bringing life to the whole Church.
