Family.

There is no perfect family. We do not have perfect parents;

We are not perfect; We do not marry a perfect person or we

do not have perfect children. We have complaints from each

other . We are constantly disappointed. There is no healthy

marriage or healthy family without the exercise of forgiveness.

Forgiveness is vital to our emotional health and spiritual survival.

Without forgiveness, the family becomes an arena  of conflict

and a fortress of evil. Without forgiveness, the family becomes

sick. Forgiveness is the asepsis of the soul, the purification of the

spirit and the liberation of the heart. Those who do not forgive are

physically, emotionally and spiritually ill.

For this reason, the family must be a place of life and not

a place of death; a place of paradise and not a place of hell;

a healing territory and not a disease; an internship of forgiveness

and not guilt.

–New  Year Message from Pope Francis, Mangalore.
