Celebrating the Amoris Laetitia Family Year
Since 19 March 2021, Pope Francis has invited the Catholic faithful to celebrate a year dedicated to the family and deepen our understanding of his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, “The Joy of Love”. The Amoris Laetitia Family Year will conclude with the 10th World Meeting of Families, which will take place in Rome and will also be celebrated in local dioceses, 22 – 26 June 2022. The following link provides resources from the Office of Family and Life at the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops to explore the pastoral insights of Amoris Laetitia.
Through video resources, the official text divided into chapters along with reflection questions, an overview of what Catholic dioceses and eparchies of Canada are doing to celebrate this year, as well as relevant Church documents and prayers for the family, these resources offer ways to learn, pray, and discern. Together they represent the CCCB’s ongoing accompaniment and support of today’s families.
SPIRITUAL COMMUNION: Join Pope Francis for Spiritual Communion HERE
Pray an Act of Spiritual Communion:
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
