Day 5 of the Synod

By October 11, 2014News, Rome Reports, Vatican

On the fifth day of the Synod, several more married couples and experts, almost all lay people, addressed the bishops.

Couples who have spent most of their lives together, like Pilar and Luis Jensen, shared their experience and made a special request to the Pope.


“Our youngest daughter is getting married next month. We ended our testimony by asking the Pope for his blessing because she sent him an invitation to her wedding.”

They also discussed how the Church needs to be present in the lives of couples and communicate its message effectively.
