Rev. Mendosa explains the enormous impact a truly Christian home can have on its community, and ultimately, on the world. Each individual family should seek to build a Catholic Culture through its own charity and devotion within the home.


The world owes an enormous debt, not only to the Portuguese family, but to all good Christian families. The practice of religion within the home is a tremendous source of influence for the whole of society. Serving as a unifying bond between all members of the family, the practice of religion makes the home a sound and solid front, united through God. As a builder of character, religious practice in daily family life awakens in the individual a sense of duty toward God and toward his fellow men, vivifies his appreciation of the moral values, enkindles in his heart the fear and the love of God. Through the individual, God is made to be the dominating influence and Master of the home. It takes many homes to make a world. It will take many Christian homes to win the world for Christ.
