Our world needs…holy and loving families to protect the beauty and truth of the family in God’s plan and to be a support and example for other families…Be living examples of love, forgiveness and care. (Meeting with Families, Mall of Asia Arena, Manila January 16, 2015)
Loving God, I had no say over choosing the family into which I was born. But I do have something to say about the family in which I live at this moment. I know how we can be flawed, broken and discouraged by our human limitations. I also believe that, with your grace, my family can come together, work, pray and play together to reflect your relationship of enduring love and forgiveness. May I always remember that you are at the center of who we are as family. Amen.
