Pope: We must restore the honor of marriage and the family

2015-04-22

Pope Francis made his way along St. Peter's Square on Wednesday, blessing pilgrims in his general audience.  At one point he actually got off the popemobile, to bless this elderly woman. 

These religious also had their moment with the Pope, and it seemed like they didn't want to let him go. 

In his catechesis, the Pope talked about the complimentary roles of men and women

POPE FRANCIS
"Women are not 'replicas' of men. They come directly from God the Creator. The image of a woman coming from Adam's rib, does not express inferiority or subordination. On the contrary, men and women are of the same substance. They are complimentary.” 

He also denounced sexism and the exploitation of women and their bodies in the mass media. Sin he added, breaks the connection between men and women. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Let's think about the recent rise of distrust, skepticism and hostility that's growing in our culture. Especially women's understandable mistrust that the union between a man and a woman, can also refine the intimacy of communion and protect the dignity of difference.”

Highlighting this very point, the Pope then called on men and women to rediscover the potential greatness that comes from marriage. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The social devaluation of stable and fruitful union between a man and a woman, is a loss for everyone. We must restore the honor of marriage and the family.” 

Since Wednesday marks Earth Day, the Pope called on Christians to protect nature and not exploit it.
