VATICAN CITY (Zenit) - This week’s 6th World Meeting of Families is a platform to present the nuclear family as a solution for the global crisis, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone said today before leaving for Mexico.
The Pope’s secretary of state will attend the Wednesday-Sunday event as Benedict XVI’s representative. The World Meetings of Families were begun by Pope John Paul II and are held every three years (click on link for the entire story)
One million are expected to attend this event. And it’s not a day too soon in my opinion. The world needs to recognize this because our cultures do not support families in any way shape or form. Our bishop from Chicago, Bishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller will represent us from our city. I wish I could be there myself. Please pray for the success of this great meeting.
