  Abstract:  The Christian Family in the Pastorals of the Archbishop and Metropolitan Bishop Bartolomeu Anania. The works of the Metropolitan Bishop Bartolomeu Anania (1921-2011) comprises various aspects of both the Romanian (and universal) spirituality and the ecclesiastical one; the last one include his Pastorals, which he addressed to the clergy and believers of the Archiepiscopate of Vad, Feleac and Cluj and had written for Christmas and Easter during 1993-2010 (the 1993 Easter and the 2010 Christmas); from great number of spiritual teachings of the above mentioned Pastorals, we presented in this paper only the ones which referred to the Christian Family; although he did not wanted to present exclusively this issue, in one of them we find out important references to the Christian family; the monogamous marriage is a divine will; chastity before marriage is a divine commandment; giving birth to children inside the marriage is Godlike; children, adolescents and young people who intend to get married shall receive elect religious education; he speaks about the good relationships between husband and wife; he also speaks about original sins such as: abortion, adultery, homosexuality etc; his piece of advice is very important in a world which is in a material and spiritual crisis, in a drift epoch, in which, more than ever, people are threatened to get out forever from the history of the world.

Keywords: marriage, monogamy, child birth, chastity, education, capital sins
