Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God; World Day of Peace
The Holy Father in his homily for the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God and the World Day of Peace started off with the family as the center:
but the true peace, that one announced from the angels in the night of Been born them, is not simple conquest of the man or fruit of political agreements; it is in the first place divine gift to implorare constantly and, at the same time, engagement to ahead carry with patience being remained always docile the commandos of the Getlteman.
The Holy Father then spoke about the family as the basis for peace.
The natural family, founded on the wedding between a man and a woman, is "crib of the life and the love" and "before and the irreplaceable educatrice to the peace".
There's more and worth a good read for its defense of the traditional family and then its interesting look at the Virgin Mary and how everything proceeds from her title 'Mother of God'.
