Pope Francis is now on American soil and your friends at Verbum are following him very closely. This morning, on the lawn of the White House, Pope Francis spoke of his deep concern for marriage and family life:
“I want to celebrate and support the institution of marriage and the family at this critical moment in the history of our civilization.”
The Pope knows that we are facing a cultural and spiritual struggle to understand, appreciate, and celebrate God’s design for marriage and the family. His choice to visit our shores during the 2015 World Meeting of Families testifies to this fact and we should be reassured by his presence with us.
We find ourselves now in a culture and situation which calls on us to become better educated in our faith, so that we can respond to the times in charity, wisdom, and faithfulness. We at Verbum are taking the education of all Catholics, clergy and laity, very seriously.
As you already know, our director Deacon Kevin Bagley is at the World Meeting of Families and we were delighted to host Papal Nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, at our booth yesterday. The Nuncio was very impressed by the software and its ability to quickly navigate the various resources to present the width and breadth of the Catholic faith.
If you happen to be at the World Meeting of Families, plaese stop by to see Deacon Kevin and the Verbum crew at Booth #1423 for exclusive discounts and prizes.
