Amoris Laetitia 85: Parents To Get Church Cooperation

amoris laetitia memeThe last paragraph devoted to the rearing of children:

85. The Church is called to cooperate with parents through suitable pastoral initiatives, assisting them in the fulfilment of their educational mission. She must always do this by helping them to appreciate their proper role and to realize that by their reception of the sacrament of marriage they become ministers of their children’s education. In educating them, they build up the Church,(Familiaris Consortio 38) and in so doing, they accept a God-given vocation.(Cf. Address to the Diocesan Conference of Rome (14 June 2015): L’Osservatore Romano, 15-16 June 2015, p. 8)

Again, not just education, but a formation as a whole person, not just a receptacle for reason.

For your reference, remember that Amoris Laetitia is online here.
