Sing to the Lord a new song +
because He has worked wonders (Ps 97:1a-b).
He has sacrificed His Beloved Son with his right hand +
and holy (is) His arm (Ps 97:1c-d).


The Lord has made known His salvation +
in the sight of the nations He has
revealed His justice (Ps 97:2).


On that day the Lord commanded His mercy +
and at night His song (Ps 41:9a-b).
This is the day, which the Lord has made +
let us exult and be glad in it (Ps 117:24).


(St. Francis of Assisi: Officium Pas Domini, Psalm IX.)

We wish you a
blessed Holy Easter
filled with the grace of the risen Christ!

World Meeting of Families in Ireland 2018
“The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the world”

PDF

The Pope chooses the theme for each World Meeting of Families. With the selection of the “Gospel of the Family: Joy for the world” as the theme of the ninth World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Ireland, the Pope invited us to reflect on a theme that was central to the synodal process that caused him to write the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia: On the Love of the Family.

Dear OFS and YOUFRA brothers and sisters,
Peace and all good:
In this material that we are sending to all fraternities, we continue proposing what was assumed as a priority in the 2014 General Chapter that invites us "to include the meaning of sexuality and the sacrament of marriage in all formation programs of the OFS and YouFra. "
