Intams2015At the conclusion of the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October 2014 Pope Francis prescribed to the whole Church a year’s journey in order to “mature, with true spiritual discernment, the proposed ideas and to find concrete solutions to so many difficulties and innumerable challenges that families must confront and to give answers to the many discouragements that surround and suffocate families”.

Building upon its longstanding expertise in combining academic reflection and lived experiences of marriage and family life, INTAMS has gratefully accepted Pope Francis’s invitation and would like to share some of the outcomes of its study and discernment on the eve of the upcoming Ordinary Assembly of the Bishops’ Synod in October 2015.

This international Symposium, which is open to everyone interested, will provide renewed reflection as well as fresh perspectives on a number of issues that need to be addressed, such as the relationship between doctrine and pastoral practice, the sense of the faithful, an ethics of mercy, and indissolubility in the context of a contemporary theology of marriage.
