Melanie Jean Juneau reflects on a recent address by Pope Francis: when Christian families practice forgiveness in their homes, their actions have a ripple effect, reconstituting the social fabric of the larger society because families are the building blocks of society.
“Refuge of the Heart” is not merely a well-written Christian romance; it tackles complex moral and social issues with equally complex, multi-layered characters. Melanie Jean Juneau shares her interview with novelist Ruth Logan Herne.
Melanie Jean Juneau reminds readers that Pope Francis consistently proclaims traditional Catholic social teaching with joy. Even better, he has joyfully lived out what he has preached for decades.
Melanie Jean Juneau discusses the pope’s recent general audience on family prayer where he reminds the faithful, “Small gestures imbued with authentic love of God are powerful signs to our children, signs which communicate both our own Love of God and His love for them.”
