About this item

"The future of humanity passes by way of the family."

St. John Paul II's Letter to Families remains one of the most insightful and encouraging resources for parents and spouses. As the Holy Father says in the opening lines of his letter, he is knocking "at the door of your home, eager to greet you with deep affection and to spend time with you."

In this new study edition you have an incomparable guide to rediscovering the beauty of marriage and parenthood. You'll also come to a deeper sense of your role in the family, and you'll be better prepared to respond to the countless challenges that families experience in today's secular culture.

The Holy Father's heroic defense of the family gives us not only hope and courage, but also wonderful tools and advice that will lead to Christ's triumph in our "domestic church."
