JEEVADHARA FAMILY RENEWAL CENTRE
God created man out of love also calls him to love-the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being. Holy Scripture affirms that man and woman are created for one another. “it is not good that man be alone”. The women “flesh of his flesh” i.e., his counterpart, his equal, his nearest in all things, is given to him as a helpmate, a representation of God himself from whom comes our help. They are no longer two, bur one flesh.
Family is a gift of God and the original cell of the society. Family is the sacred altar of couples where love and life is shared and reaches its fullness. The personality differences, the wrong impressions of relationship, the influence of mass media, inability to understand and accept one another creates a lot of problems leading to the deterioration the familial relations. It also brings in splitting up of the love relationship of the couples, weakening of their commitment and the unity and the integrity of family is threatened. To help all the families to become like Holy Family of Nazareth where commitment to their vocation as husband and wife is nurtured and valued is the aim of Jeevadhara Family Renewal Centre.
