2008: The Family

Family Poster Image

The ninth annual Fall Conference, “The Family: Searching for Fairest Love,” was inspired by Pope John Paul II’s 1994 Letter to Families: “The contemporary family, like families in every age, is searching for ‘fairest love’.” But it is impossible to deny that modern family is suffering a multi-dimensional crisis—economic, legal, political, demographic, biological, structural, cultural, and metaphysical. Conference attendees gathered to examine the family, its origins, and its status in society and under civil law; to discuss the challenges the family faces in the modern world; and to offer hope for the future of the family. The conference also celebrated, in a special way, the anniversaries of two important papal documents: the twentieth anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s apostolic letter Mulieris Dignitatem, and the fortieth anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae. Watch video recordings of the presentations using the links below.
