FR. ADOLFO NICOLÁS
Superior General of the Jesuits 
"It's an entire process. It's not just about preparing for marriage, but also about being there after the wedding. It's about giving them all the tools to overcome the challenges and pain that, be it from one issue or another.” 


REV. PAUL BUTTLER 
Anglican Representative 
"I think we need to re-imagine family life again and help people grasp how important steadfastness and faithfulness to one to another really is and offer much more support in terms of difficulty. We have to be honest, difficulties happen. ”

With 13 couples invited to speak in the Synod, these cases of highs and lows that come with marriage and a family have been personalized. With the support of her husband, this Filipino woman overcame a serious illness and she refused to have an abortion, despite the pressure of her doctor. 


GEORGE AND CYNTHIA CAMPOS

The synod meetings break down to two daily sessions. One in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The synod will conclude on October 19th.
