Vatican archbishop sees Charter of the Rights of the Family as 'prophetic'

Catholic World News - September 20, 2013

The Charter on the Rights of the Family is unfortunately a “little-known document,” 30 years after its publication, but remains a “prophetic appeal,” the president of the Pontifical Council for the Family told a September 20 news conference.

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia—speaking at a briefing on a 3-day Vatican conference on the rights of the family—said that the Charter on the Rights of the Family deserves greater attention today. The family is under attack now, he said, in ways that were not anticipated when the Charter was approved. “But the validity of the principles gathered and ordered in the Charter stands firm to this day.”
