The Spanish Bishops’ Conference recently published an instruction on the family entitled The Family: Sanctuary of Life and Hope for Society. It is a call for families to recover values traditionally advocated by the Church so that the family becomes the example of these values for the rest of society, which too often is driven by contrary values. In the following summary, Antonio Nello, Professor of Moral Theology at the Facultat de teologia de Catalunya, laments that the Spanish bishops have too easily overlooked the real situation of many families and that their advice does not help in pastoral practice.
