Aim: The purpose of the work is to reconstruct the message sent by the editors of the “Dom Rodzinny” (“Family Home”) weekly, a supplement to the “Słowo Pomorskie” (“Word of Pomerania”) daily published in Toruń since 1921, which described the “model lives” of Catholic families. Methods: The research was conducted using the method of contents analysis. Results: The results of the research which included nine annual volumes of the magazine led to the conclusion that the areas to which particular attention was paid included strengthening faith and providing information on religious and church issues, building patriotic attitudes by reminding about the complex history of Poland, national heroes and great Poles, defining the role of women in the home and in society, making readers sensitive to care in bringing up children, and building relationships between family members and friends. Furthermore, the magazine’s aspiration was to prevent modern Catholic families from losing touch with the surrounding reality and various new tendencies and novelties. The magazine’s authors were open to the world and propagated the idea of sightseeing, encouraged readers to study exotic cultures, informed readers on technical news, and even provided discreet tips on selecting comfortable, practical, cheap, and fashionable clothes for both parents and children. Conclusions: The contents published in “Dom Rodzinny” explicitly indicate that the editors aimed at making a multi-dimensional influence on its readers. They wanted the family to be a support of faith, full of love for the homeland, thriving under the care of a good wife, mother, housewife, and female citizen and, on the other hand, to be deeply rooted in the modern world and using the achievements and proposals it offered with wisdom.
