Pope Francis: Reflections on The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia)

Each week we will be providing an excerpt on the Pope's letter for you to read and reflect on. The reflections have been made available by the Archdiocese’s  Adult Faith Formation department.

Excerpt

“Greater emphasis needs to be placed on the fact that children are a wonderful gift from God and a joy for parents and the Church. Through them, the Lord renews the world.”

(Amoris Laetitia 222)

Reflect

Bringing up children involves both the wonderful experience of joy and giving and receiving love and affection and involves countless sacrifices.  A parent's responsibilities start from a child's conception onwards to adulthood and oftentimes beyond.  Each child is different from the other and come each in her or his own way to help us grow as both parents and as a family

A parent’s greatest desire for their children is to see them grow, be happy, be secure, flourish and to be fulfilled, to bring blessing to others and to our world, to be part of the family of God and to love God.

Reflect this week on how your child/children are unique gifts from God in your family and to share with your children why they are such a unique gift.

Animate… Inspiring Life and Soul 

Animate is the Youth Service of the Archdiocese of Liverpool and was set up as a response to people in the Diocese naming Youth Ministry as one of their top 3 priorities to be addressed. It was decided that the best way to address Youth Ministry in our Diocese was to set up a team of young people who could minister to other young people.

Each month they run a ‘Life and Soul’ service.  It consists of a period of Adoration accompanied by modern and traditional hymns.
