10th World Meeting of Families
“Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness”
"Family love: vocation and path of holiness" is the title of the 10th World Meeting of Families held in Rome June 22-26, 2022 and organized by the Diocese of Rome and the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life.
The pandemic made it necessary to rethink the ways how people could participate in the event, which, at the Holy Father's request, took place both in-person and online, in a "multicentered and widespread" form. During those days, most of the dioceses around the world organized local meetings and liturgical celebrations on the same themes planned for the Pastoral Congress in Rome, which was attended by 2,000 delegates from bishops' conferences and movements. In this way, the message "Family love: vocation and path of holiness" became widespread and could reach families all over the world.
