Pope Francis walks resolutely in the footsteps of Saint John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Paul VI and the Second Vatican Council, to support Christian spouses and families, inviting them “to value the gifts of marriage and the family, and to persevere in a love strengthened by the virtues of generosity, commitment, fidelity and patience”.

The Holy Father is well aware of the complexity of current family situations, of the challenges and vulnerabilities of families . . . “no family drops down from heaven perfectly formed; families need constantly to grow and mature in the ability to love. … Let us make this journey as families, let us keep walking together. What we have been promised is greater than we can imagine. May we never lose heart because of our limitations, or ever stop seeking that fullness of love and communion which God holds out before us” (The Joy of Love, 325).
