Holy Father Pope Francis sent a video message to the participants in a conference organized by the Italian Bishops Conference on Pope Francis’s Post-Synodal exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Under the theme ‘The Gospel of Love between Conscience and Norm, the participants are exploring how to respond to the desire of family that emerges in the soul of the young generations and seeking together ways to help the faithful assimilate and develop Amoris Laetitia’s content and style, contribute to pastoral outreach to families in parishes, communities and ecclesial movements and support all families on their journey through life.

As reported by en.radiovaticana.va, Holy Father Pope Francis remarked that “The family born of marriage creates fruitful bonds, which reveals themselves to be the most effective antidote against the individualism that currently runs rampant; however, along the journey of marital love and family life, there are situations that require arduous choices, which must be made with rectitude.”

His Holiness concluded his video message by reminding that in the very depths of each one, there is a place wherein the Mystery reveals itself and illuminates the person, making the person the protagonist of his story. Recalling the II Vatican Council, Holy Father Pope Francis highlighted that Conscience is the most secret core and sanctuary of a man and there he is alone with God, whose voice echoes in his depths.
