Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive

Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, is visiting Cuba and the U.S. this month. As one of the key events of the Pope’s U.S. visit is the World Meeting of Families, we invite everyone to join us in prayer for the success and safety of all events. As we begin these short, daily promptings to spiritually join in on the great celebrations in Philadelphia focusing on Families, it seems fitting to start with a quote from the Saint who wanted to be remembered as the Pope of the Family, the great Saint John Paul II. What about these prophetic words from 1986?

As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
Saint John Paul II

30 Nov 1986, Homily, Perth, Australia
