VATICAN - Pope: the image of the family is “deformed through powerful contrary projects supported by ideological colonisations” [AN]

Francis urges the Équipes Notre Dame to make a missionary commitment to “receive, train and support in the faith particularly young couples, before and after their marriage,” be close “to wounded families, which today are so numerous,” and " be instruments of the mercy of Christ and of the Church towards persons whose marriage has failed.”


Powerful contrary projects. In the midst of a desire for compassion, we cannot ignore why and how the image of the family is being deformed.

God bless,
