It is like family life. In the family, everything that enables us to grow, to mature, and to live is given to each of us. We journey and grow in a community, and a family. We can encounter the Lord in the sacraments, which are the open windows through which the light of God is given to us, streams from which we can draw God’s very life; in the church we want to live in the communion and love that come from God.
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy
