Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelization
I would like to bring selected issues of the III Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, by topic:
“Pastoral Challenges to the Family in the Context of Evangelization” which took place 5-19 October 2014.
The Synod of Bishops, gathered around the Holy Father Francis, turned its thoughts to all the families of the world, each with its joys, difficulties and hopes.
The family is truly the “school of humanity”, which is much needed today...
Fr. Tony Christmas messge
Whenever you smile to another person and hold out to him a helping hand, then it is Christmas. Each time you cease talking to listen to others, whenever you give another a glimmer of hope, when you allow God to love others through you, then it is always Christmas. May the Child Jesus make every day that you wake up and become stronger and more confident of his presence, proximity and above all his endless and lasting love. May Christmas bring us a stronger adherence to God who is present in other people.
Fr. Antoni Bury, Pastor
