Today’s young generation has its recurring profile,
its tapestry that gets into the mainstream of humanity;
quite a big deal to understand what’s life for them
may mean to generate values and roles to understand.
Traditional gender roles and older generations,
increasingly, reasons to hang on to family values;
with a wider range of scope and tendency to see
that parents in toto contribute to solve other issues.
But without the presence of parents in every home,
children are quite in danger to trace family values;
without guidance and role models to embody them
especially in formation or upbringing in their homeland.
Perhaps the Christian outreach to these children,
whose identity has to be formed and acknowledged;
in diverse situations where they take part as persons,
a good opportunity to develop their sense of growing.
Children of divorce are still children of our Lord
their own share of hardships and life’s relationships,
are gifts to combine faith in their quest for God’s word,
dimensions of truth and human forces of growth.
Wrapped with human dignity and sense of identity,
these children cope with a giant step through faith
undaunted by the storms and challenges of this world
remain precious creatures of our Lord and Savior.
