God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus, Your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of Your love.

Bless us with the joy of love. Amen.

WMOF2018 ICON OF THE HOLY FAMILY

This icon takes the form of a triptych which looks, from the outside, somewhat like a house with front doors. On these outside doors, we are presented with the Archangels Michael and Gabriel, who carry with them the desire of God to protect. Their heads are bowed in adoration and service of God, the Holy One. On the base is the inscription “Amoris Laetitia”, ‘The Joy of Love’, the title of Pope Francis’ post-Synodal exhortation on love in the family, the source of our reflections during the World Meeting of Families 2018.
