In Croatia, the Pope encourages Christian families to go on the offensive

On the second day of his whirlwind trip in this small country predominantly Catholic, the pope had taken a particularly offensive to exalt the Christian family, "unique contribution to evangelization", to highlight its "missionary vocation" and encourage to be heard in society. While the Croatian Bishops' Meeting celebrated the first Catholic families, Benedict XVI expressed his concern over "secularization that leads to the marginalization of God in life and an increasing disintegration of the family."
Calling on the traditional Catholic families to act in the political arena especially in bioethics laws or legislation related to family policy, it encouraged them to say "the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, the unique and irreplaceable value of the family founded on marriage and the need for legislative measures that support families in the task of producing and educating children.
