Heal Wounds with True Communion

Members of “Communion Notre-Dame de l’Alliance,” an association that takes care of separated and divorced persons, came to visit the Dicastery

The Council of “Communion Notre-Dame de l’Alliance” came to visit the Dicastery during a recent pilgrimage to Rome.

Founded in 1983, this association of faithful recognized by the French Bishops’ Conference, has over 300 members in France and Belgium. Through true communion among them, the members—married persons who are separated—commit themselves to remain faithful to the promises of marriage, supported by prayer, the sacraments, and fraternity. The association offers retreats for separated and divorced persons, and its members bear witness to the joy and peace that God offers even in times of difficulty.

The association’s coordinators told Prefect Kevin Farrell about their apostolate in the service of different dioceses and their effort to make “Amoris Laetitia” more widely known. After the visit to the Dicastery, the group briefly met with Pope Francis.The Council of “Communion Notre-Dame de l’Alliance” came to visit the Dicastery during a recent pilgrimage to Rome.
