Synod on the Family - Oct. 4 - Oct. 25, 2015
For news on the Synod of the Family:
Thank you, Pope Francis!
“Love is shown by little things, by attention to small daily signs which make us feel at home. Faith grows when it is lived and shaped by love. That is why our families, our homes, are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life, and life grows in faith.” (Pope Francis—Homily at closing Holy Mass at World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia on Ben Franklin Parkway, September 27, 2015)
Pope's parting words: May our days together bear fruit that will last, generosity and care for others that will endure! Just as we have received so much from God –gifts freely given us,
and not of our own making – so let us freely give to others in return.

and to always seek your truth and live in
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
