Vatican City, 15 May 2014 (VIS) – Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin has sent a telegram to the archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan, Socrates P. Villegas, president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines, on the occasion of the “Asian Conference on the Family”, which is being held from 13 to 16 May on the theme “Families of Asia: Lights of Hope”.

“Recalling that the 'family is the fundamental cell of society where we learn to live with others despite our differences and to belong to one other'”, he continues, “His Holiness calls upon all the lay faithful gathered to deepen their experience of faith and communion, under the guidance of the Successor of Peter and the Bishops, so as to be a leaven of Christ's love in the midst of humanity”.
