“World Peace: A Family Recipe!”Wednesday, September 07 2005
The Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) has just launched its annual message to families. At a time when people wonder about the violence reported daily by the media, this document offers an unexpected ray of hope.
Entitled "World Peace: A Family Recipe!", the document takes an optimistic look at the mission entrusted to families: to raise sowers of peace and joy! It proposes an overview of qualities that serve the cause of peace and invites families to open themselves to Christ, the prince of peace.
"The heart of each child and of each parent is the privileged centre where the seed of universal peace can take root and grow in family life, parish life, the country and the world, writes COLF. For how can we be instruments of peace if it is not first found in our own heart?”
COLF invites the members of Canadian families, inspired by the values of the Gospel, to build a more just and more humane society. It is a call to an unprecedented mobilization for peace!
The Catholic Organization for Life and Family is co-sponsored by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. It promotes respect for human life and dignity, and the essential role of the family.
Each year, COLF sends a new message to families. The most recent ones were entitled:
- "The Christian Family: Good News for the World"
- "Families: Messengers of the Compassionate Love of Christ"
- "In Love for Life – A Reflection Paper on the Conjugal, Social and Religious Significance of Marriage"
