God created families–every human being was created in His image. Sin ruined His plan, but through Christ’s death, He opened the possibility for reconciliation and restoration. Because of God’s love, mercy, and sacrifice for us, we strive to strengthen, rebuild, restore, and reconcile families to God’s image.
 
Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
--Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
