Pope to open conference on the complimentary roles of men and women in marriage

2014-11-04

Just weeks after the Synod on the Family, the Vatican has announced it's hosting a three day inter-religious conference on marriage. 

Hoping to highlight and defend the beauty of marriage and of family life, the meeting will focus on the complimentary role of a man and a woman joined in marriage. It will take place from November 17th to the 19th and it will bring in more than 30 speakers from 23 countries and 14 religions. 

Given the recent Synod discussions on marriage, family, divorce and same sex unions, the timeliness of the meeting will likely spark widespread attention. Pope Francis is expected to open the conference, but a full list of speakers include former chief rabbi of Great Britain, Lord Jonathan Sacks. 

Also Evangelical leaders like Pastor Rick Warren and Southern Baptist Russell Moore. Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist representatives will also take part. 

Catholic speakers include Cardinal Gerhard Muller, who serves as the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and also Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, where the next World Meeting of Families will take place in September 2015.
