(ANS – Rome) – The Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, when presenting a theological vision of love in matrimony and in the family, highlighted some essential attitudes, among which is patience as a characteristic of the God of the Covenant. He shows patience through Mercy. Thus, for parents, patience must be an experience of compassion and personal self-control to avoid reacting with violence in front of the weakness of the children, to avoid being dominated by evil, to avoid becoming discouraged in practicing the good.

The evil is much more widespread than commonly thought: according to EU data, in Europe alone, a boy or girl in five is sexually abused. For this reason, the Center for the Protection of Minors of the Gregorian University has recently organized the "1st Global Congress" on "Dignity of the Minor in the Digital World" - to which Pope Francis also sent a message.
