The vocation of the familyAvailable now: the third video of the Holy Father in dialogue with families
“With the same look of tenderness and mercy that Jesus had, the Church wants to accompany families so that every family might be a pillar of evangelization. I would like to say one thing to you: with the sacrament of matrimony, every family receives the Grace to become a light in the darkness of the world.” – says Pope Francis in the first of 10 videos which promotes the “Amoris Laetitia Family” Year.
The theme of the video is: The family in the light of the Word of God and comments on the first chapter of the Exhortation “In the light of the Word”.
