Prayer to the Holy Family - Pope Francis

Though the first meetings of the Synod have now been completed, the process of study, prayer, and reflection on the role of the family, the challenges facing families, and pastoral care of the family today will continue through the coming year. Let us continue to pray for the fruitful continuation of this process.

Papa Francisco en español ...

En Octubre del 2013, el Papa Francisco ofreció estas palabras sobre la santidad: "Dios nos dice, 'No tengas miedo de la santidad. No tengas miedo de apuntar alto, de dejarte amar y purificar por Dios. No tengas miedo de dejarte guiar por el Espíritu Santo. ¡Dejémonos contagiar de la santidad de Dios!'"

Pope Francis

Pope Francis offers these words of encouragement in an audience in October 2013: "God tells us: 'Don't be afraid of holiness. Don't be afraid of aiming high and allowing yourself to be loved and purified by God. Don't be afraid. Let the Holy Spirit guide you. Be embraced by the holiness of God!'"

For those who speak Spanish, the entire talk is included in  the Spanish language video.

Just for Fun!
