Filial Appeal, Please

Filial Appeal to Pope Francis
on the Occasion of the 2015 Synod on the Family

Christ, the great Prophet, who proclaimed the Kingdom of His Father

both by the testimony of His life and the power of His words,

continually fulfills His prophetic office until the complete manifestation

of glory. He does this not only through the hierarchy who teach in

His name and with His authority, but also through the laity whom

He made His witnesses and to whom He gave understanding of the

faith (sensu fidei) and an attractiveness in speech so that the power

of the Gospel might shine forth in their daily social and family life.
Lumen Gentium, 35
