A friend and I said that watches on behalf of enduring as the universe, the girl sent to you, all for your feelings can be a long long time. Watch is a concentrated expression of a man's taste in hublot replica life. Men generally only from the watch, pen (ball point pen), wallet, leather belt, leather bags on the choice and wear to show their fashion and taste. However, due to the leather wallet, leather bags are often slightly cumbersome and covered by women's fashion, so the choice of masculine men tend to watch and pen. The watch omega replica also embodies the pursuit of a man's life and grasp the future of tolerance.

·         Comments 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 of Families


We are here to officially announce the programme of the visit of Pope Francis to Ireland on the occasion of the World Meeting of Families together 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 Pope.


Today 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 the Amoris pastoral programmes,


My hope is that now the World 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.  


The 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 we can live 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 the World Meeting of Families as 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 the World Meeting of Families as a gift that the Irish Church can then share with others.


Family 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 parents? 


I 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.


I 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.


·         Archbishop Michael Neary welcomes the announcement that His Holiness, Pope Francis will visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock during the World Meeting of Families 2018


Pope 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.


When 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.


I 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.


Pope 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.


One 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.


The 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 the historic visit of Saint Pope John Paul II on 30 September 1979 to mark centenary of the Apparition. 


Knock 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.


Knock 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 concluded.

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 of Amoris 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.

AMORIS CONVERSATIONS - Video resources for parishes on family life and Amoris Laetitia
Parishes will shortly be offering the first of six parish sessions as part of our Amoris: Let's talk Family! Let's be Family! Programme. The first theme that parishes will be looking at is "The Reality of Family Life Today". The videos to accompany this series are now live on the Amoris website. These videos take as their starting point people’s experience of love and their hopes and fears with regard to marriage and family. These are part of a selection of resources to facilitate interactive and participate parish conversations.

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. 

Check our new section on resources for the icon, where you will be able to accessexplanations, reflections and prayer resources for a visit of the icon
