About this item

"The future of humanity passes by way of the family."

St. John Paul II's Letter to Families remains one of the most insightful and encouraging resources for parents and spouses. As the Holy Father says in the opening lines of his letter, he is knocking "at the door of your home, eager to greet you with deep affection and to spend time with you."

In this new study edition you have an incomparable guide to rediscovering the beauty of marriage and parenthood. You'll also come to a deeper sense of your role in the family, and you'll be better prepared to respond to the countless challenges that families experience in today's secular culture.

The Holy Father's heroic defense of the family gives us not only hope and courage, but also wonderful tools and advice that will lead to Christ's triumph in our "domestic church."

Great Pope's Reflections
St. John Paul II was the greatest man of the twentieth century in many ways, and in no single way was his influence greater than in defense of the traditional family. This book of 139 pages is beautiful. Originally written to celebrate his proclamation of 1994 as the Year of the Family, it is the perfect summary of St. JP II's reflections on the most important institution in God's created order.

Something all parents should read
If you are looking for a book to give to a newly married couple or a couple who has been married for twenty years, they would both benefit from reading this saint's words. Highly recommended!
