HUMAN LIFE

All human life is precious. People are more important than things.

Life and Dignity of the Human Person

Our belief in the sanctity of human life and the inherent dignity of the human person is the foundation of the One Strong Family movement. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.

SOLIDARITY

We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers wherever they live.  “Loving our neighbor” has global dimensions in an interdependent world.

Solidarity

Our culture is tempted to turn inward, becoming indifferent and sometimes isolationist in the face of international responsibilities. One Strong Family members believe that we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, wherever they live. Learning to practice the virtue of solidarity means learning that “loving our neighbor” has global dimensions in an interdependent world.

PROTECT HUMAN RIGHTS

Human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met.

Rights and Responsibilities

One Strong Family believes that human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met. Every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency. Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities – to one another, to our families, and to the larger society.

FORGET ABOUT ME

In a society marred by selfishness and greed, our values instruct us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.

Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

One Strong Family members hold that a basic moral test is to measure how our most vulnerable members are faring.  In a society marred by selfishness and greed, our values instruct us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first while always doing unto others as we would want done unto ourselves.

THE CALL

People have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all.

Call to Family, Community and Participation

We believe that all human beings are not only sacred but also social. The message of F.A.M.I.L.Y.® directly affects human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community. The family is the central social institution that must be supported and strengthened, not undermined. We believe people have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable. We recognize that the message of F.A.M.I.L.Y.® is inclusive of all, therefore it can be applied to any organization, team, school, church, workplace, synagogue, municipality, country, etc.

CARETAKING

We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God’s creation.

Care for Creation

One Strong Family members insist that we show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all creation.
