Pope Francis coming to Philadelphia: Catholic Families on a Mission Of Love...Your guide to the World Meeting of Families.....
Prepare for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, PA with this special issue of the Catholic Digest commemorating this historic event in the life of the Church.
Pope Francis is coming to Philadelphia to talk to us about the family.
This is no small thing!
What will the Holy Father teach us?
What will he say?
When Pope Francis was in the Philippines earlier this year, he encouraged families to be "dreamers."
"It is important to dream in the family. All mothers and fathers dream of their sons and daughters in the womb for nine months. they dream of how they will be. It isn't possible to have a family without such dreams. When you lose this capacity to dream, you lose the capacity to love, the capacity to love is lost. I recommend that at night when you examine your consciences, ask yourself if you dreamed of the future of your sons and daughters. Did you dream of your husband or wife? Did you dream today of your parents, your grandparents who carried forward the family to me?
It is so important to dream and especially to dream in the family. Please don't lose the ability to dream in this way. How many solutions are found to family problems if we take time to reflect, if we think of a husband or wife, and we dream about the good qualities they have. Don't ever lose the memory of when you were boyfriend or girlfriend. That is very important."
