(Hall 7) - EN 🎧ES, IT
Presenter: Fr Leo Patalinghug. US Priest, Chef & Author.
In Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis tell us that “a family’s living space could turn into a domestic church, a setting for the Eucharist, the presence of Christ seated at its table” (AL. 15). This presentation discusses the family as a domestic Church and the way in which God’s inexhaustible gift of grace is experienced in the daily life of families.
