Pope John Paul II stated in his welcome letter to the new Norwegian ambassador at the Vatican that he is worried about the degrading of family values in Norway.

«One cannot but notice that an eclipse of the sense of God has cast its shadow not only over your own country but over other Nordic lands as well,» wrote the pope in his letter to Ambassador Lars Petter Forberg.

«As I have noted on many occasions, it is marriage and the family which come under greatest threat. For this reason I continue to urge both religious and civil leaders to uphold the sacred institution of marriage, willed by God in the very act of creation, with its concomitant of stable domestic life.»

In the letter the pope warns against making marriage equal to other cohabitation arrangements. The letter, which was sent last week, was published by Zenti, an international news agency that cover the Catholic Church.
