Provincial's Musings

This year, 2023, has been declared as the Year of the Family by a number of dioceses in Karnataka. Many families have been dysfunctional today due to individualism, addiction, marriage breakdown, abuse, domestic violence, stress, etc. It was David Cameroon, who said, “If we want to have any hope of mending our broken society, family and parenting is where we have to start.”
