The challenges facing contemporary family come from the fact that all events related to political, social, cultural and religious changes cumulate in this basic human community. The role of a family is particularly significant in those places where anti-religious regulations make it difficult for parents to educate their children in faith according to their will. The primary challenges of a contemporary family may be balanced applying the principle of a Christian organization Jeunesse Ouvriere Chretienne (JOC). This method first asks one to see (voir) various threats to a family which are related to cultural changes, progressive dechristianization and new trends which are against the Christian vision of family and marriage. Not only should the threats be seen but one should also collate and assess them (juger), i.e. point out how they harm a family and why one should radically object to them. On the third stage one should act (agir) and take concrete pro-family measures in order to prevent significant erosion of sacramental marriage which form the foundation of the Catholic family. The community of family life advocates is looking forward to concrete proposals connected with the Synod of Bishops on family which started in Rome in 2014. They should present the range of activities in defense of family and new formation perspectives.
