.. and tasks in the family

Responsibility
The soul is called to personal and conjugal love, responsible in fidelity and exclusivity, with the mandate to grow and multiply.
In the gift of self for a new life, one receives the responsibility to become a visible sign of God’s love, from whom every fatherhood in heaven and on earth is named; this gift is confirmed in performing services to life, valued even without children.
From God’s creative gesture one knows and realizes the family according to the truth of his or her being and his or her action; that confers dignity and responsibility.
It is necessary to implement and express love, by keeping, revealing and communicating every task that reflects the divine love for humanity.
God created man, male and female, giving equal personal dignity; enriched with inalienable rights and responsibility, their dignity has to be realized in the family by giving each other and both to their children; this ministry is ordained to good, dignity and vocation, so that children acquire a responsible freedom and keep alive the consciousness of the gift. Through it, everyone has a responsibility to build communion in service, both mutually and to small, sick and elderly, by his or her own abilities.
