Faith and family in the modern world

By

Starting today, Oct. 5, Catholic bishops from all over the world are congregating in Rome to discuss for the next two weeks the situation of the family in the contemporary world and the pastoral challenges this poses for the Church “in the context of evangelization.” This extraordinary synod reflects the substance and style of Pope Francis’ leadership of the Catholic Church.

I wrote an article about it in the July 28, 2013 issue of the Inquirer (Lifestyle, “Blessed John XXIII canonization: Why didn’t the Vatican consider this miracle?”).
