Reception of Gaudium et Spes in Africa: The Challenges of Marriage and the Family

Ngatchu Damen Nyinkeu




Accepted 30th April, 2015.


This paper examines some of the challenges of marriage and family life, using Gaudium et Spes as a document that does not seek to pass judgments on man's activity but rather to reveal the truth of man to man. The necessity of a dialogue, such as the one profoundly expressed in Gaudium et Spes, is important, of great assistance and supportive to the church in her ministry to feed the flock of Christ.


Keywords: Gaudium et Spes, Africa, marriage and the family
