Pope Francis explains the purpose of the Synod to a group of families

2015-09-10

Pope Francis has met with dozens of couples from Equipes Notre-Dame, a Catholic movement that began in France and promotes spirituality for married couples. For example, they teach couples how to pray together and how to speak about everyday issues they may face.

Their work is deeply related to what will happen at the Synod, the Pope said.

POPE FRANCIS
"I have the joy of being with you all a few weeks before the Synod of Bishops that I wanted to convene in Rome so the Church could reflect on and place more attention on how families live. They are vital parts of society and of the Church and they are suffering, as you know, from the current, difficult cultural context.”

The Pope asked them to help separated couples and to not forget that "your conjugal fidelity is a gift from God, and that mercy has been shown to every one of us.”

Some 63,000 couples from more than 20 countries participate in Equipes Notre-Dame and more than 8,500 priests are involved.
