4th Movement CSW 2018

In his homily at the last World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, Pope Francis spoke about howwe  experience ‘homely gestures’ in our families, such as a hug at the e nd of a day, or a meal readywhen we arrive home. He then goes on to say the following:
“We Christians, the Lord’s disciples, ask the families of the world to help us! How many of us are here at this celebration! This is itself something prophetic, a kind of miracle in today’s world, which is tired of inventing new divisions, new hurts, new disasters. Would that we could all be prophets!
Would that all of us could be open to miracles of love to benefit our own families and all the families of the world, and thus overcome the scandal of a narrow, petty love, closed in on itself, impatient of others! I leave you with a question for each of you to answer – because I said the word ‘impatient’: at home do we shout at one another or do we speak with love and tenderness? This is a good way of measuring our love”
