Strong families are key to crime prevention, Vatican official tells Interpol

November 06, 2012

In an address to the 81st general assembly of Interpol (The International Criminal Police Organization), the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States said that strong families are the society’s best defense against crime.

Archbishop Dominique Mamberti told Interpol delegates that “the most effective antibody to any form of criminality is a country’s citizens.” More specifically, he said, “the most important place in which human beings are formed is the family.” It is at home that children learn the meaning of justice and the common good, the archbishop said, noting that these concepts are essential to a public rejection of crime.
