Take a look at what’s happening to our family life. Do we communicate? Do we share?
Do we take time to get involved with each other? Are there opportunities for
improvement? What is God’s plan for us? Today’s society makes it hard to be a family.
Television takes up a lot of our time together. The hustle and bustle of business,
rushed meals, school, work, committee meetings, sports and shopping are cramming
our days and weeks. The family is under heavy attack today. The battle is largely over
values and commitments. To survive, the family needs support. Its primary source of
strength must be found in a growing religious and parish life. But it also can be helped
substantially by an organization such as ours. Help prevent the death of the family by
administering preventive medicine. Conduct those programs and activities which aid in
rebuilding the family spirit from within, making it vital and strong enough to resist
society’s ills. Encourage members and their families to choose as their model the Holy
Family, copying their attitude of interdependence, sharing and respect for authority.
Work to strengthen family life. Nourish wholesome home life through the sponsorship
of activities involving entire families on a scheduled and continuing basis. Encourage
communications and routines which involve family members within their own homes
as well as bringing families together in social and recreational events in the
community. Stimulate togetherness within family units. There are many ways in which
families can enjoy time together in a scheduled, organized way, even when the age
range of members of the family varies widely.
