Compendium on the Family and Human Life Rite for the Blessing of a Child in the Womb united states catholic catechism for adults
“The nuclear family that develops from marriage is the basic cell of society,” said Pope St. John Paul II. Now more than ever, that basic cell is under pressure from modern society. It can be hard to hear the Church's voice of Truth in the midst of all the noise. Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond, chairman of the Committee on Divine Worship of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, hopes this blessing will provide not only support and God's blessing for expectant parents and their child in the womb, but also another effective witness to the sanctity of human life from the first moment of conception. The United States Catholic Catechism for Adults is an aid and a guide for individuals and small groups to deepen their faith. The online resources listed at the left provide suggestions on how to use the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults effectively in the home and parish.
