Pope’s quotes: Family foundation

A quote from Pope Francis:

“The family remains the foundation of coexistence and the guarantee against social fracture. Children have the right to grow up in a family, with a father and a mother, able to create an environment suitable for their development and their emotional maturation. … The young represent the future: it is important that they are not left to be swept up by this damaging mentality of the temporary, and that they are revolutionary for their courage to seek a strong and lasting love.”

— Audience with participants in the international interreligious colloquium on marriage and the family, Nov. 17, 2014
