The issues discussed in the article are focused on marriage and family. Although the subject has been present in the reflexion within the Church for some time now - as was emphatically expressed by John Paul II in the well-known adage “family is a way of the Church” - the episcopal synods called by Pope Francis demand a new look at such important issues. The anthropological and cultural change that is going on before our eyes requires an analytical and differentiated approach. In the face of increasing threats there rises a fundamental question about hope for the family. The author presents his reflections on three points: 1) the truth about the Church and family; 2) the threats to the truth about family in present day culture; 3) postulates of rebuilding hope. Referring to the teachings of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, the author points to the Church doctrine and the community of the Church itself as a sign of hope for the family, and in consequence for the whole world. The Christian message about God who created man in His image and likeness, as well as the saving love that God offered to man in Jesus Christ allow us to understand the truth about human being and make it possible to get orientated in the face of the threats of modernity.
