What is theology? It is the study of God, his existence, his nature, and his works. It is God's plan that the family function as a theological community. What this means is that the ultimate fact of family life is the fact that God exists and that we are his creatures. Everything we do, think, and say is attached to that reality. We must never allow ourselves to view life horizontally, that is, only in terms of earthly relationships and circumstances. We must always ask questions about God, his will, and his work no matter what the subject or situation being discussed.
