Taking into consideration Pope Francis’s exhortation on marriage, the apostolic administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem has met with other Mideast church leaders to discuss an action plan to not only build on the current marriage preparation program but also instruct young people on what marriage actually is.
Witness to Love marriage prep ministry, based in the U.S., tries to call engaged couples into the Church for a greater and more fulfilling life of virtue through an intensive, multi-faceted program. The program is in line with Pope Francis’s ‘Amoris Laetitia.’
“The tragedy of the Christian community around the word… is the destiny of a Christian. Giving witness is a difficult situation. I don’t like it when [some] speak of a Christian genocide in the Middle East: It’s a reductionism,” Pope Francis said on Saturday.
