Family and Compassion

The family is the good earth on which to sow and to allow compassion to grow

“Don’t judge if you don’t want to be judged... in the family”. This is the theme of the educational meetings for families organised by the Vicariate of Gela in the Diocese of Piazza Armerina, held during the past few days by Marta Rodríguez from our Dicastery, related to some of Pope Francis’s writings: Misericordiae Vultus, Amoris Laetitia and Gaudete et Exsultate. From a look into our own hearts to that towards our brothers and sisters by passing through that of the Father: “Those who have experienced the compassion of the Father are able to be merciful to their brothers and sisters.”
