CFM Blessed by Pope Francis Visit

Meeting of Families
By CFM USA Executive Director, Rosemary Piraino.
Many CFM families attended the World Meeting of Families and the Papal Visit to Philadelphia. My husband and I brought our five kids and met up with extended family and CFM couples in downtown Philadelphia. It was a wonderful gathering of Spirit-filled Catholics from throughout the world. So many people made long journeys with hopes of catching a glimpse of Papa. "We love you, Papa!" the people around me cried out as he passed by. Pope Francis inspires all of us to Act with love and compassion. During his Sunday homily, he talked about life within the family. We have so many opportunities to choose to show love in the "little gestures" and daily actions. He mentioned actions like "the early lunch awaiting someone who gets up early to go to work" and "blessings before we go to bed". He encourages us to choose to Act in loving ways instead of ways that contribute to the brokenness in the world. Our Papa loves each one of us and has great confidence in our ability to love each other. Here is a link to his homily.

CFM in Rome-January 2015

Lauri and John Przybysz, CFM-USA board members, participated in an international conference of lay organizations and movements for the Pontifical Council for the Family, January 22-24, 2015 in Rome. They represented the Christian Family Movements in USA and Canada, which have more than 8,000 Hispanic and English families. Przybyszs shared the input of the CFM movement on the preparatory document for the Synod on the Family, and responded to the questions of how to help families come closer to Christ and to each other. The upcoming Oct. 4-25, 2015 Synod will be a gathering of bishops and many clergy and lay delegates from around the world to discuss the theme: "The vocation and mission of the family in the church and the modern world." The Synod is an extensive listening and discussion process for the Church, so that everyone will have a better idea of how to share the teaching of Jesus in an effective and compassionate way.
