Message for the Week for the Sanctification of the Family
On the occasion of the Week for the Sanctification of the Family starting from the Feast of Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, on December 30, 2011, the Most Rev. Paul Hwang Cheol-soo, President of the CBCK Committee for Family Pastoral Ministry, issued a message and urged that Christian family has to be an example of proper values.
In the message entitled "Form the Proper Values of Christian Family", he pointed out "nowadays, values are judged by materialism and egotism in many cases. Such a phenomenon results in violation of human dignity."
He said, "Various family problems are derived from the absence of proper values which form one’s criteria of behavior and lifestyle."
He also stressed that "we have to vitalize our family by our words and deeds. Although we have various difficulties in our situation with our human limits, our efforts to vitalize each other will bring about great changes in our family life."
