Newly released WMOF cartoons focus on Amoris Laetitia
WMOF 2018


A new series of digital animations have been launched as part of ongoing preparations for the World Meeting of Families and the visit of Pope Francis.

The new resource focuses on Amoris Laetitia, the document written by Pope Francis on love in the family.

The Amoris Animations, the first created using Amoris Laetitia as a guiding theme, provide an accessible insight and reflection on the message in the Joy of Love in short, engaging and shareable cartoons.  There are six animations in the series that focus on the following themes:

How families can transform the world: How love in our families can transform our own lives and the lives of others.

Love and mercy: Our call to be a sign of mercy. How we can be a reflection of Jesus’ mercy with the ideal he sets out while never failing to show compassion to the frailty of others.

Families living as a reflection of the Trinity: God is a communion of love and the family can be its living reflection.

Love and imperfection: How love can overcome weaknesses, faults and imperfections.

Families and consumerism: The impact of consumerism on family life. Rejoice and celebrate what we have rather than always wanting more material things.

Families living in a digital age: The importance of switching off our phones to give each other the time and space that love needs to flourish.

The animations have been created by Kieran O’Brien who is the director of the digital storytelling agency Ministory, based in Cardiff, Wales. His previous work includes a series of digital animations on Pope Francis’ encyclical letter on care for our common home, Laudato Si’.

As part of this animation series there are also four additional animations that have been specifically created for children. These animations will be launched at the World Meeting of Families Pastoral Congress in the RDS in August.

The Amoris Animations are available in Italian, Spanish and French and can be accessed on and on
