Dear Family of Betania,

Soon the 8th World Meeting of Families will take place. It will be held from September 22 to 27, 2015 in Philadelphia, USA. The theme is:

“Love is our mission. The family fully alive.”

The World Meeting of Families is held every three years and was instituted by St. John Paul II in 1994, the Year of the Family.

Philadelphia s Archbishop Charles Chaput has pointed out that during this important event for the Church various issues related to the faith in the families will be addressed. These are the issues that affect families not only in the United States but globally as well.

The Holy Father Francis, God willing, will attend this important meeting.

Let us pray for the success of this meeting in which the Betania Spirituality Movement, Venezuela, will have its booth (No. 1108) to spread the message of Mary, Virgin and Mother, Reconciler of All Peoples and Nations, from Betania, Venezuela, a message of fraternal reconciliation and family unity.

We are a great family that tries to improve by all means, in order to truly be aware of the values of the men, women, and the children of today.  (Servant of God Maria Esperanza Bianchini)

The prime bases of a family are: unity, education, and to be straightforward with an exact conscience regarding each one s duties, in order to affirm those who are growing, that is, those who are coming behind us.  (Servant of God Maria Esperanza Bianchini)

The power of love is the prime basis of a family that knows how to respect each other, totally united.  (Servant of God Maria Esperanza Bianchini)
