Papal Message for the World Day of Peace 2008

Message for the celebration of the World Day of Peace 2008 – THE HUMAN FAMILY, A COMMUNITY OF PEACE

The natural family, as an intimate communion of life and love, based on marriage between a man and a woman(2), constitutes “the primary place of ‘humanization’ for the person and society”(3), and a “cradle of life and love”(4). The family is therefore rightly defined as the first natural society, “a divine institution that stands at the foundation of life of the human person as the prototype of every social order”
