A dialogue about Marriage and the Family

laycentr382334Last Wednesday, after a beautiful Mass presided by Fr Mark Rotsaert, SJ, our dinner conversation turned to the topic of marriage and the family in light of the upcoming extraordinary synod on the Family.

The decision to initiate this dialogue was occasioned by the presence of  Hubert and Aldegonde Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn, the founders of INTAMS (International Academy for Marital Spirituality).

The lively conversation was enhanced by the presence of Prof. Yair Zakovich, a professor from The Hebrew University, who offered some personal insights on  what he considered key words he associated with marriage, Prof. Mary McAleese, who commented on marriage in Canon Law and the importance of the Extraordinary and Ordinary Synod, and Dr. Aurelie Hagstrom,  who has written books and articles on the Theology and Spirituality of the Laity.

Some of the married couples of The Lay Centre shared with the group their insights based on their personal experience and in light of their own cultural background.
