Abstract :
The Family Center “House of Tenderness” was recently formed in Perugia in order to provide a concrete response by committed Catholics to the dramatically increasing divorce rate in Italy. It is a small community, where each family maintains its own private space and where each couple shares their journey as Christian spouses with one another. Carlo Rocchetta, a specialist in the sacrament of marriage who has written extensively on the topic, was professor of theology at the Pontifical Lateran University. He left this prestigious teaching position in order to dedicate himself to developing a structure whereby the Church in Italy can be of assistance to couples attempting to live out the ideals of Christian marriage. He here describes this new initiative. Further information can be found on the center’s website:
