A couple with 10 children organize the meeting of Pope Francis with large families

2014-12-27

Italian marriage Giuseppe and Raffaella Butturini  organized this unique event and estimate that 7,000 people will attend. The Italian Large Family Association will celebrate close to Pope Francis its 10th anniversary. They asked him to celebrate their anniversary at the Vatican and he accepted the invitation right away.

"This association was born when two fathers, who were shopping, met at a supermarket back in August 2004. They were looking at the same fish and thinking the same thing: 'Oh, it would be great to have this for lunch, if we could only afford it...'. It was too expensive for someone who had to provide for four or six children.”

The main goal of celebrating this anniversary is clear: they want to send society the message that a large family is the best place where children can grow. They have 10 children.

"When my husband was sick, my children supported me. We also went through economic difficulties eventually, and our house was flooded in 2010.”

Large families associations from other countries will also attend the gathering. It will begin on December 28 at 11.30 AM, marking the Feast of the Holy Family. 

The situation of the family today is one of the topics that most concerns Pope Francis. On October 2015 bishops from all over the world will gather at the Vatican for the second phase of the Synod on the Family.
