Just yesterday I was speaking with Archbishop Gomez who was still in Rome and looking forward to returning home after the Synod on the Family. I thanked him for his intervention of October 10, 2015, which was made on the Synod Floor. In part he said in this intervention that “The Church needs to recover and reflect on ‘family’ images found in the Scriptures and most ancient Tradition, and in the universal Church’s liturgy and popular piety: 1) The human person as the imago Dei; 2) the Church as ‘family of God’; 3) the family as the ‘domestic Church’; and Divine filiation and the Christian life as spiritual childhood.”
