Mother Mary is the mother of God and Mother of us. In our family we are giving respect and honor to our parents and all members. But the interference along with the whole family now reduced and hence the touch with the family drastically decreases. The parents should attach with their children as well as the family members. But the scenario has been completely changed due to various obvious reasons in fact. The families are in danger. The impact of faith in our family completely changed due to world atmosphere of everything. he said.
