Therefore, the Pope stressed, there is greater reason for all the structures of the Church to work toward an “appropriate preparation for marriage, in a sort of new catechumenate — I stress this: in a sort of new catechumenate — so desired by some Synodal Fathers.”Pope Francis To The Roman Rota
It is interesting that Pope Francis says "new catechumenate" and even stressed this word. :-) It is no secret that the Necoatechumenal Way has been successful in creating mission families and itinerants who were willing to leave everything behind to evangelize in other countries. People are impressed with how the families are open to life and how faith is transmitted to the children.
We live in a world where the divorce rate is high and most couples prefer cohabitation over the commitment of marriage. However, in the Way, families are instructed to pray together as a family. Families pray morning prayer together. In the communities, single people sometimes gather together in a home for morning prayer. Other times, families would invite community members who are single to join them for morning prayer. Prayer is very powerful. It brings all people of God together including those who are in Heaven interceding for us.
