Pope: The family teaches how to say Yes to God

Pope Benedict reflected on the Family before reciting the Sunday Angelus on the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. He said the Christian family does not consider children possessions, but educates them to have the freedom which enables them to say yes to God, and to do his will. In the Gospel reading, Jesus, just 12, is in the temple, without his parents knowing. Pope Benedict says in this passage we see the true meaning of Christian education, which is the fruit of an ongoing collaboration between educators and God.
