Dear Regnum Christi Family in Christ,
As you likely are aware, Pope Francis today issued his exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, On Love in the Family. The Holy Father offers us a rich tapestry on the fundamental building block of our society and the vocation most of our lay members of the Movement are called to. It is also an area of particular importance in the apostolic work of Regnum Christi.
Take time to prayerfully study this letter. As the Holy Father himself says, “I do not recommend a rushed reading of the text. The greatest benefit, for families themselves and for those engaged in the family apostolate, will come if each part is read patiently and carefully.” (#7)
As families, I encourage you to read, pray with, and live the beautiful Church teachings and encouragements the Holy Father gives you. The letter is full of spiritual and doctrinal reflections, practically applied, to encourage you to embrace the love and mercy God gives each of you and share it together with joy. I hope you recognize the importance and richness of your life and vocation in these pages, and find new ways to live it more deeply in daily life.
Yours in Christ and the Movement,
Fr John Connor, LC
