E-mail Print PDF

On February 25, 2014, Pope Francis issued a letter to families about the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the theme "The pastoral challenges to the family in the context of evangelization". In his letter, the Holy Father writes that "this Synodal Assembly is dedicated in a special way to you, to your vocation and mission in the Church and in society; to the challenges of marriage, of family life, of the education of children; and the role of the family in the life of the Church." He also asks to families "to pray intensely to the Holy Spirit, so that the Spirit may illumine the Synodal Fathers and guide them in their important task."
