Prefect, Congregation for Bishops (March 18, 2010)
"I think that for all families, passing on the faith to their own children is a great challenge today, due to secularism and all the provocations within a culture that's veering from Christianity.

Cardinal Marc Ouellet is fluent in six languages: his native French, English, Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese.
