We are celebrating a Year of St. Joseph, and on his feast, the Holy Father has asked us to launch a Year of the Family, celebrating the “Joy of Love” that we experience in our families. The “Joy of Love” also relates to the third year of our Jubilee theme “Love One Another,” from John 15:12.
For the next 10 months, a new video will be released on the website http://bit.ly/EnglishLinkamorislaetitiaand on Vatican News, accompanied by a short guide which will help reawaken in families, but also in dioceses and parishes around the world, a pastoral interest in the family. Check out the most recent video. The Spirituality of Marriage and the Family
