Bartholomew Prayer_List.html
The dignity of man rests above all on the fact that he is called to communion with God. This invitation to converse with God is addressed to man as soon as he comes into being. For if man exists it is because God has created him through love, and through love continues to hold him in existence.
He cannot live fully according to truth unless he freely acknowledges that love and entrusts himself to his Creator. -- Gaudium et spes

“The first thing that a person finds in life and the last to which he holds out his hand,
and the most precious that he possesses, even if he does not realize it, is family life.”
Blessed Fr Adolph Kolping - Kolping Society, emphasizes sanctification of family life -- dignity of labor.
