The World Meeting of Families
Will take place in Dublin on the 21st -26th of August 2018. It is expected that Pope Francis will attend so we are beginning our preparation now for that event. Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation “The Joy of Love” (Amoris Laetitia) offers his vision for family life. In the newsletter each week we will share with you a paragraph from this document. Each family is unique and special and Pope Francis affirms this while concentrating on the good news. Enjoy the extracts.
Week one extract
The welfare of the family is decisive for the future of the world and that of the Church. Countless studies have been made of marriage and the family, their current problems and challenges. We do well to focus on concrete realities since the call and the demands of the Spirit resound in the events of history and through these the Church can also be guided to a more profound understanding of the inexhaustible mystery of marriage and the family.
