The Pope Is Coming !
As you know, Pope Francis is visiting the United States the week of September 22, 2015. He is coming to take part in the Eighth World Meeting of Families. This is the Pope’s first visit to the United States; it is also the first time that the World Meeting of Families is being held in our country.
This event “seeks to strengthen the sacred bonds of family life across the globe and highlights its intrinsic value for the good of society!” The theme for the event is, “Love is our Mission: the Family Fully Alive.”
Pope Francis will celebrate a Papal Mass on Sunday, the 27th of September. I will have the privilege of attending this Papal Mass. I would like to carry your petitions with me to the Mass. Perhaps, you will have special petitions for your family: for good health for your family members, prayers for your children, especially for those who may have stopped attending Mass, peace within your family and so forth.
Many of our Vincentian Works for the poor are concerned with family matters: educating families as to how to budget their money, better relationships with family members, offering faith formation programs for family members (adults and children), offering programs for single parents and for the elderly.
If you are able, please consider sending a donation to assist in our works for the poor. List your intentions here.
