It transforms both human beings and humanly created structures and systems (culture is a man-made system). I think it is very important that a Christian should first read his/her culture in the light of the Bible.
Vocation, a divine call from God to devote oneself to his services. As a catholic it is my job to serve God, not just as a St. Lucy student today but after I graduate and throughout my life. In order to lead out a vocation it is important to practice ministry. Ministry allows us to spread the good word of the Lord and as a way for us to introduce our faith to others. This is important to church growth both physically and spiritually.
“Behold your mother!” By these words, I recognize that the Blessed Mother has an active role to play in my faith and spiritual life. I also realize that this is how the LORD Jesus wished to bring His Sacrifice to completion. He entrusted His mother to His beloved disciple, and in the beloved disciple to all mankind. She thus became our Mother in the work of salvation. This dedication further illustrates the great love with which the LORD Jesus offered His life for all

They will probably wonder and panic like any other would be parents would. Pope Paul VI also points out the objective moral order underlying responsible parenthood. If God wills it, marriage act leads married couples to the call of parenthood. Both husband and wife are required to fully understand the obligations and responsibility of parenthood.

Therefore, the value of love is its ability to create a dialogue through self-realisation. Cowburn (2003) stresses that 'all love involves oneness ' (p.25), and so love is an acceptance of oneself as a whole. To be one within yourself is a base for any other relationship (Little, 1993). Thus, Kierkegaard (1962) argues that 'if anyone, therefore, refuses to learn […] how to love himself in the right way, he cannot love his neighbour either ' (p.39). In other words, love is the bases for moral growth, established through an integration of the self.
Introduction: Marriage is the basic foundation of any society in which two partners start living together with the intention of spending their whole lives with each. (A.T.Ryan, 2012). Marriage is in view of reality that men and ladies are reciprocal, the natural truth that generation relies on upon a man and a lady, and the truth that youngsters require a mother and a father.

Furthermore, the way parents perceive having a loved one with Down syndrome is influenced by the beliefs (Vermeer, 2014) that they have towards the condition.
