(10/7/15) The next Synod on the family interests the media and it will have an important editorial achievement. The small volume “Pensieri sulla famiglia” – a collection of Pope Benedict’s thoughts and speeches – is now having a great success with the approach of this event in October. As Pope Francis told during one of his General Audiences on Wednesday, the Church tries to show its faith to the Word of God in order to bring hope, because “If we do not find a surge of respect for this covenant, capable of protecting new generations from distrust and indifference, children will come into the world even more uprooted from the mother’s womb. The social devaluation for the stable and generative alliance between man and woman is certainly a loss for everyone. We must return marriage and the family to the place of honour!”.
