Family, the Church, and the Real World
REDEMPTORIST PASTORAL PUBLICATION
Family life is both messy and holy!
If you embrace only the holiness, or if you just get lost in the messiness, then you miss the fullness of the experience that is living as a family - both in the domestic church and the Institutional Church. Here you'll find inspiration from Scripture and modern advice that does more than just tell you how family life is "supposed" to be. This book gives you real, practical wisdom on how to navigate the holy messiness of family life.
Insights have been gathered from experts in every area of family life, including: Dr. Sean P. Reynolds, Dr. Gregory Popcak, Lisa M. Hendey, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, Donald J. Paglia, Christopher West, Fr. Andrew Carl Wisdom, Dr. Thomas J. Neal, and Greg and Jennifer Willits. You'll discover that Catholic Church teaching on marriage and family is rooted in our ultimate calling - to love with all we can muster, even through those messy moments.
