Father Shenan Boquet, President of Human Life International, recently addressed participants of the Auckland Eucharistic Convention on Building a Culture of Life.
In his presentation, Father Boquet speaks of the need to transform the culture. Drawing on Scripture, he explains how God has given us building blocks to do this, saying: “The building blocks that help us understand the language we speak begins in the family.”
“‘If you love me, you keep my commands’ (John 14:15). And where does a child learn that? Learns it from mum and dad. Learns it when mum and dad are living that love. Not only just for eachother, but the love for God. The love of God’s teaching. The dogmas and the doctrines and all the teachings that have been revealed to us through the Church, through revelation and how God is teaching us his commands. And are we responding to them?”
Watch Father Boquet’s presentation to learn how and why we must work to build a culture of life, beginning in the family.
