Holy Father's refection on his US visit

" The Holy Father said that during his visit, he had encouraged the American bishops "in their difficult task of spreading the Gospel in a society marked by no small number of contradictions." More specifically, he reported that he had encouraged the bishops to protect family life, especially by helping young couples to recognize "the sacrament of marriage as a gift and an indissoluble commitment between a man and a woman, the natural environment in which to welcome and educate children." The Pontiff went on to say that he had encouraged efforts to provide children with a "solid moral education."

Let's pray and work to live this important reminder of our call to be salt and light to our society.
