Contribution to the Synod on the Family by African Pastors.
In preparation for the forthcoming XIV General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops October 2015, ten African Cardinals and Bishops have contributed important essays to provide a unique insight into the attitudes of Africans towards marriage and the family. In the process, they discuss the culture and traditions of their homeland, while drawing attention to the rich and beautiful teaching of the Magisterium of the Church on that subject. These African Pastors provide much food for thought and reflection about modern Western culture and our personal lives, as well as an introduction to the Synod. The title of the book comes from the phrase used by Blessed Pope Paul VI, which in our time beautifully expresses the universality of the Church and the increasing role played by African Church leaders. This book is for Bishops, Priests, Seminarians, Catechists, Teachers, and whoever is involved in formation.
