10 videos Amoris Laetitia

The Familiy in the light of the Word of God: the second video

Pope Francis in dialogue with families in a series of 10 videos


«How do we imagine God’s love? Is there a concrete reality in the world that helps us see this love with our own eyes? Certainly there is! It is the family! The image of God is reflected in man and in woman, in conjugal love: a living ‘icon’ through which God is made manifest». With these words, the Holy Father opens the second of the 10 videos featuring Pope Francis together with families from different parts of the world.

The theme of the video is: The family in the light of the Word of God and comments on the first chapter of the Exhortation "In the light of the Word".

Through a series of 10 videos, beginning with the chapters of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, the Holy Father, with the help of several families, invites us to journey together to rediscover the family as a gift, despite every problem, obstacle and challenge that families have to face today.

Each video is accompanied by a guide that can be used flexibly either by families or by various ecclesial groups (diocesan, parochial, community). Each guide is then subdivided into 4 parts. Each of these can be used for further reflection in the family or in a community, in different moments as well.

This pastoral resource is an initiative of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life in collaboration with the Dicastery for Communication, as part of the initiatives of the « Amoris Laetitia Family » Year.
