“Announce with joy the beauty of being family!
Be a sign of the living Christ, do not be afraid of what the Lord asks of you, nor be generous with Him.
Open yourselves to Christ, listen to Him in the silence of prayer.
Accompany those who are most fragile, take charge of those who are alone, refugees, abandoned.
Be the seed of a more fraternal world!
Be families with big hearts!
Be the welcoming face of the Church!”
(Pope Francis, June 2022)
