Using ideas from Familiaris Corsortio Rubio will highlight five spiritual tasks of families as they acknowledge the challenges of over-scheduled and stressed life. She will help them come to recognize family as a school of virtue while acknowledging and accepting the imperfection of everyday life. At the close of the session, participants will select one family spiritual practice as they renew their commitment as disciples.
The Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris Consortio (On the Christian Family in the Modern World) by Pope John Paul II. 1981 is available at the Vatican website.
