Patris Corde: With A Father´s Heart

14.12. 2020 | News


Last Tuesday, we celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. On that day, Pope Francis published an Apostolic Letter to explain that he would like the whole Church to celebrate the year of Saint Joseph. It began on that day, and it will go on until the same day next December. The Pope´s letter explains that Saint Joseph has been the Patron of the Catholic Church for one hundred and fifty years. It says a lot about the gifts God gave Saint Joseph, which enabled him to look after Jesus and Mary, and the Pope also suggests several ways we can learn from him.

Here is a short version of the Pope´s Apostolic Letter:  Patris Corde summary  (pdf download)

The full version is available here in nine languages:  Apostolic Letter Patris Corde
