As the Bishops of the United States gather in Baltimore this week for their fall meeting, the family and the recent Synod on the Family are forefront in many bishops’ minds.
Now more than ever, there is a need to focus people on the sanctification of the family. Our culture is trying to push impurity as the accepted standard of moral behavior within families and purity is viewed as an unachievable standard for normal people.
But we know that Our Lord calls us all to purity and fifty years ago he sent his mother, calling herself Our Lady of America, to a sister in Ohio to call us to purity and sanctification of the family. Today, there is a movement underway to have the Bishops of the United States fulfill her requests with the promise to pour forth many graces.
