But, in a message to the ple- nary meeting of the Pontifical Council for the Family, the pope praised families that have succeeded in remaining strong communities of faith, espe- cially when one of the parents has abandoned the home. The council held its plenary Sept. 28-30, and the pope's written message to the meet- ing was released Oct. 2 by the Vatican press office. "The church today finds it- self faced with an ever more I iIma  Ildml secularized and complex soci- ety no longer structured on re- ligious values and, instead, marked by pronounced indif- ference, especially in some countries," the pope said. "This certainly does not make it easy to propose the faith to new generations and even blocks their ability to ac- quire an authentic sense of the meaning of life," he said. Even when both parents pro- fess and live their faith, he said, their adolescent children may feel drawn through their envi- ronment, school or the media to values and lifestyles different from those encouraged at home.

The parents' work obliga- tions often reduce their time with their children to a few evening hours, he said. "As a consequence, religious educa- tion is often delegated to the parish or to associations." But the church and Chris- tians themselves must not overlook the fact that many families have found ways to "walk united in the faith, real- izing together an experience of growth in their Christian life," he said. i = Ed.
