life. Men generally only from the watch, pen (ball point pen), wallet,

of Archbishop Diarmuid Martin on the launch of the programme of the
visit of Pope Francis to Ireland on the occasion of the World Meeting
We are here to officially announce the programme of the visit of Pope Francis to Ireland on the occasion of theWorld Meeting of Familiestogether
with the details of the Programme for the Family Pastoral Congress that
will be held at the RDS in Dublin on the days before the visit of the
we launch the programme of the final stage of a process that has been
underway for over two years here in Ireland and has reached out to
parishes throughout the country through theAmorispastoral programmes,
My hope is that now theWorld Meeting of Families-
the pastoral preparation, the Pastoral Congress in the RDS and the
visit of Pope Francis – will open out for families renewed inspiration,
hope and healing.
visit of Pope Francis to the World Meeting of Families in Dublin must
not be just a once off event. It comes as the Church in Ireland
struggles to find a new place in Irish society and culture - a very
different one from the dominant one it held in the past.
Pope Francis is above all a free man. He shows us wecanlive
in a world where faith seems marginal and yet manage to touch hearts
and challenge them to reflect on and discern those fundamental values
vital for society. What he does is to find ways in which he can
win hearts for what the teaching of Jesus involves, not through
imposing and judging, but through winning and attracting.
Pope Francis said to me that he considers theWorld Meeting of Familiesas
a gift to the Irish Church. His idea, however, is not that we
will receive a gift to be placed in a glass-case for ourselves.
He looks on theWorld Meeting of Familiesas a gift that the Irish Church can then share with others.
is about love, no matter how imperfect and failing: it is about a love
that enriches lives. I am thinking about the love of spouses, the
love of parents for children, the goodness with which families enrich
communities. We have great families who would never think
of themselves as great: they simply do their best. Where would
any of us be without the love and generosity we received from our
wish to sincerely thank all those in the Church in Ireland and the
public authorities all of whom, in their own areas of competence, have
made an enormous contribution to ensure that as many people who wish to
can take part in the events.
encourage families to take part in the global event that is World
Meeting of Families. I encourage families to take this unique
opportunity to see Pope Francis where they can. All are welcome.
Michael Neary welcomes the announcement that His Holiness, Pope Francis
will visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock during the World Meeting of
Francis has gifted the World Meeting of Families 2018 to Dublin.
From the moment of the announcement of the Holy Father’s decision, the
work of preparation began, and, thank God, it continues to gain
momentum day by day, not only in Dublin but in every part of Ireland,
and I welcome the official announcement from the Holy See this morning
The Church in Ireland is delighted and honoured that Pope Francis will attend the World Meeting of Families in person.
accompanying the Irish Bishops in their visit to the Holy Father in
January 2017, I availed of the opportunity to invite the Pope, in the
event of his being able to visit Ireland for the World Meeting of
Families, to also make a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock,
Queen of Ireland which is located within the territory of the
Archdiocese of Tuam.
warmly welcome the announcement this morning of a papal visit to Knock
which is a very appropriate link with the World Meeting of Families
which takes place in Dublin on 25 and 26 August.
Francis will arrive at Knock Shrine at 9.45am on Sunday, August 26
where he will circuit in the pope mobile and pray the Angelus at the
Apparition Chapel before departing from Knock Shrine at 11.15am.
of the most beautiful sights at Knock is to see families, sometimes the
three generations praying and enjoying the peace and tranquillity of
the Shrine. The Apparition at Knock was family apparition
incorporating Our Lady, Saint Joseph, Jesus as the Lamb of God, and
John as representing the extended family.
Holy Father’s personal devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, is well
known, and his visits to the Basilica of Saint Mary Major before and
after his various apostolic journeys are powerfully
inspirational. It seems to me that an opportunity to visit Knock
is something the Holy Father personally desires. It will be the
second time a Pope visits Knock Shrine following thehistoric visit of Saint Pope John Paul II on 30 September 1979 to mark centenary of the Apparition.
was considered to be a most suitable venue for the official launch, on
21 August 2017, of the unveiling of the World Meeting of Families icon,
and the one-year countdown to the beginning of the World Meeting in
Dublin in August 2018.
Shrine has the capacity to continue the momentum generated by the World
Meeting of Families, and it is a place where the fruits of the World
Meeting will be nourished and blossom long after the World Meeting has
INTERNATIONAL CATECHESES IN PREPARATION FOR WMOF2018 The
Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life in the Holy See has made available
the International Catecheses for the World Meeting of Families 2018.
The seven catecheses, one for each month from here to August, are
available in five languages and accompanied by musical
itineraries—one for each catechesis—and videos of music. They are
built around the Gospel narrative of the loss of the 12-year-old Jesus
and his recovery in the Temple (Luke 2:41–52), with threads woven
between the text ofAmoris Laetitia—which
inspires the Dublin Meeting—and the unique story of the Holy Family of
Nazareth that reveals how timely and prophetic the proclamation of the
Gospel of the family is.Read more about the International Catechesis here.

parishes all around Ireland and beyond: 700 cubes are winging their way

Family Cube is a resource for children making their First Holy

the family and with friends, neighbours, in school and the community. More details on the Amoris Cubehere.
RESOURCES FOR THE WMOF2018 ICON OF THE HOLY FAMILY - journeying around Ireland The
WMOF2018 Icon of the Holy Family has been travelling to each of the 26
dioceses in Ireland since it was unveiled and anointed in August
2017 during the launch of the one-year programme of preparation at
Knock Shrine. We estimate that when it finishes its journey in August
2018 it will have travelled 32,200 km!
Accompanying the icon are
petition boxes, where families are writing down their intentions and
prayers. Contemplative communities around Ireland are praying for the
intentions being collected. The petitions will also be brought to World
Meeting for Families 2018.
