“Each person, with all his or her failings, is called to the fullness of life in heaven (AL, 117). In Amoris Laetitia, the Holy Father reminds us that “this realization helps us, amid the aggravations of this present life, to see each person from a supernatural perspective, in the light of hope, and await the fullness that he or she will receive in the heavenly kingdom, even if it is not yet visible” (AL, 117). This practical, theological, sociological and inspiring talk will help answer the questions parents ask most: What's my most important job in life? Answer: To get your family to heaven? Question: How? Well, you'll have to attend this lecture to hear how you can do it!
