Vatican spokesman links via crucis, family life

Catholic World News - April 09, 2012

The director of the Holy See Press Office has devoted his weekly editorial to the link between the stations of the cross and family life.

“This year, the idea of entrusting the meditations of the Pope’s Way of the Cross at the Colosseum to an elderly married couple is a wonderful and inspired one, and a significant step in the preparation for the next World Meeting of Families in Milan at the beginning of June,” said Father Federico Lombardi.

“The Church is constantly committed to defending the family, at a time when the contemporary mindset tends rather to belittle its value or even ridicule its loyalty and stability,” he added. “But we must also help the family by proposing a strong spirituality that can accompany it in times of difficulty, not only in material trouble or illness but also in those difficulties--sometimes profound and painful--between husband and wife, or when there are misunderstandings and rifts between parents and children, or when facing the solitude that comes at the death of a spouse.”
