"For most of us, the family provides the principal place where we can begin to 'breathe' values and ideals, as well to realize our full capacity for virtue and charity. At the same time, as we know, families are places of tensions: between egoism and altruism, reason and passion, immediate desires and long-range goals. But families also provide frameworks for resolving such tensions."
- Pope Francis, in his address to the Colloquium on “The Complementarity of Man and Woman in Marriage," November 17, 2014
