Simple phrases strengthen family life

“May I?” “Thank you,” and “Pardon me.” These simple phrases are not so easy to say or to put into practice. But when they are ignored, their absence can cause cracks in the foundation of the family, which can lead to its collapse. If these words are part of our daily lives, not just as a formal expression of good manners but as a sign of deep love for one another, they strengthen a happy family life.”—Pope Francis

Reflection:
Are these phrases that you use consistently? Do you use them as more than just an expression of good manners?
