Pope Saint John Paul 2 spoke ages ago (1988) about the importance of the family in society and in the mission of the Church. It is such a pivotal 2 minute address. Please take the time to watch as it is impossible to convey his forceful delivery without seeing this yourself.
FOR the family, NOT AT THE EXPENSE of the family!
This week will see us travel to Albury which is 16 hours drive away, for the National Association of Catholic Families Conference. The National Association of Catholic Families originated in the UK and now have branches on a number of continents. We are not formally members as there is no branch of the NACF in Brisbane, but are very closely aligned with their goals.
The above footage of JPII is from their homepage.
So we will drive for 2 days, stay in Albury for 3 days, then drive another 2 days home! Crazy but in a good way I hope.
Stay tuned for updates.
