The Family Partnership

IMG_0409

Suppose you manage your family more like a family office─a portfolio of assets and, more importantly, people.  This would be the Investment Policy Statement:

The family must help man to discern his own vocation and to accept responsibility in the search for greater justice, educating him from the beginning in interpersonal relationships, rich in justice and in love.

It is a cross Currency Swap [where the currency is flesh]:

Personal union in which the spouses reciprocally give and receive

[…]

Accordingly, the family must go back to the “beginning” of God’s creative act, if it is to attain self-knowledge and self-realization in accordance with the inner truth not only of what it is but also of what it does in history.

Family: the bootcamp of despise─love

without love the family is not a community of persons and, in the same way, without love the family cannot live, grow and perfect itself as a community of persons.

A true story;  my input on the following:

[talking about the husband..] In his wife he sees the fulfillment of God’s intention: “It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him a helper fit for him,” and he makes his own the cry of Adam, the first husband: “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.”

Female sapiens, with “rights”:

Authentic conjugal love presupposes and requires that a man have a profound respect for the equal dignity of his wife: “You are not her master,” writes St. Ambrose, “but her husband; she was not given to you to be your slave, but your wife…. Reciprocate her attentiveness to you and be grateful to her for her love.”(69) With his wife a man should live “a very special form of personal friendship.”(70) As for the Christian, he is called upon to develop a new attitude of love, manifesting towards his wife a charity that is both gentle and strong like that which Christ has for the Church.”
