The “Love is our Mission” teaching prepared for the teaching prepared for the World Meeting of Families explains how all of Catholic teaching about sex, marriage, and the family flows from our basic beliefs about Jesus. This teaching offers a narrative beginning with our creation, soberly noting our fall and the challenges we face, but emphasizing God’s plan for our salvation. Love is our mission, and it is by loving God and one another that we will be fully alive. The Second Vatican Council said that each family is a “domestic church,” a small cell of the larger universal Church. This teaching explores what that means. We encourage everyone to study this catechesis, to discuss it with others, particularly in parishes, and to pray about how the Church can serve families, and how families can serve the Church. The family and the Church are mutually dependent on one another. In this book, we have tried to present Catholic teaching in a way that is fresh, insightful, and accessible to contemporary Catholics and all people of good will. To paraphrase Saint Augustine, writing in his Confessions, God is ever ancient, ever new. We hope that this teaching confirms for you the beauty and coherence of Catholic teaching, which is sublime and venerable wisdom, and the true source for renewal in every age, including our own. If you would like an electronic copy of “Love is our Mission: The Family Fully Alive” or interested in being part of a discussion group, please send an email to JStephens@StBAmeliaParish.org.
