Recognise family rights says pope
Individual rights 'prevail' says Francis25 October, 13:24
"The family-community is not the sum of the persons who make it up but the natural centre of human life," Francis told a plenary assembly of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
The family, he said, "asks to be recognised as such, all the more so today, when safeguarding individual rights prevails".
The family is founded on the sacrament of marriage, he said.
