This week's featured article:

Family and Sanctity


What do we understand by the phrase “the Sanctity of the Family?” Surprisingly, the two words, family and sanctity, are interrelated, especially the first to the second. It seems the first without the second is a non-vibrant entity, or an entity unknowing of its identity. Such a characterization is valid, since the word sanctity, or holiness, in either a religious context or a popular context, cannot differ from the meaning of the words “clean,” “pure,” “spotless,” “sinless,” “humble,” and “righteous.” Each of these words, separately, exerts a force that parallels that of the word “sanctity.”

The structure of a family, in addition to having a sociological character, also has a religious complexion, because it has a telling influence on the birth and upbringing of an individual . . .
