Family: school of obedience and environmnent of true freedom



On St George's Day, the Holy Father celebrated Mass in the "Redemptoris Mater" Chapel of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace, with organizers of January's World Meeting of Families, which took place in Mexico City. (Some lucky children made their first Holy Communion at this Mass.)

In his short homily, the Holy Father spoke about the virtue of obedience, saying that it was not a mere subjection or following of commands but the fruit of an intimate communion with God. He said that Christian families that live in the light of faith are schools of obedience and the environment of true freedom.
