The World Meeting of Families will focus on key issues related to family drawn from Pope Francis’
teachings in The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia). In the countdown to the events in August, for the next
seven weeks we are bringing you a flavour of these themes.
Week 1 – The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World is the overarching theme for WMOF2018
>As the first school of faith and love, the Christian family is often where we ourselves first come to know Jesus and his love.
>The family proclaims the Gospel to the World. The Christian family, by its witness to the life and love of Jesus, is a principal agent of evangelisation to the world.
>As Pope Francis explains in Amoris Laetitia¸ “the Christian proclamation on the family is good news indeed”. The Christian proclamation of the family is an indispensable part of the ‘Good News’ of the Gospel. God’s plan for the family, revealed in Sacred Scripture from the beginning, is joy for the world!
