An Irish delegation has travelled to Rome to attend the 10th World Meeting of Families which began Wednesday.

Families, along with Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin and Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin Denis Nulty, travelled over to attend the event on the theme ‘Family love: a vocation and a path to holiness’.

Ahead of his departure for Rome, Bishop Nulty said, “We are very much looking forward to being part of the tenth World Meeting of Families in the presence of Pope Francis and pilgrims from around the world. All of us remember with fondness those memorable days in Dublin four years ago”.


In adoration the Lord directs us in a ‘noisy world’ – prelate

In a “busy consumerist culture” Eucharistic Adoration has a special appeal the Archbishop Emeritus of Tuam said during the pilgrimage of Eucharistic Adorers to Knock.

In his homily, June 18, Archbishop Michael Neary said: “In a noisy world there’s a special attraction about being able to focus in peace and quiet on Jesus Christ in the Sacred Host.”

Archbishop Neary said that in adoration the Lord has an opportunity to speak with us. “It’s a two-way conversation. He doesn’t have to compete with a myriad of voices clambering to be heard. So often in adoration the Lord gently directs us to choose the right path,” he said.
