•Catechism of the Catholic Church 2203
“In creating man and woman, God
instituted the human family and endowed it
with its fundamental constitution. Its members
are persons equal in dignity. For the common
good of its members and of society, the family
necessarily has manifold responsibilities,
rights, and duties.”
•Catechism of the Catholic Church 2207
“The family is the original cell of social life.
It is the natural society in which husband and
wife are called to give themselves in love and
in the gift of life. Authority, stability, and a life
of relationships within the family constitute the
foundations for freedom, security, and
fraternity within society. The family is the
community in which, from childhood, one can
learn moral values, begin to honor God, and
make good use of freedom. Family life is an
initiation into life in society.”
