Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life launches a podcast

Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life launches a podcast

(ZENIT News / Vatican City, 07.24.2023).- What and, more importantly, whom does a Vatican Dicastery that works “for Laity,  Family and Life” take care of? To what kind of closeness does Pope Francis invite when he addresses  the call to be close “to the women and men of our time”?

In the podcast series starting the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life talks about its everyday  work that affects the concrete lives of so many people: families, young people, the elderly,  associations of the faithful and, more generally, lay people living in the world with their joys and  burdens.

From caring for families, the elderly and young people, to accompanying associations of the faithful  and lay movements, to the promotion and protection of human life and the person in his or her  complete development: there are numerous themes and just as many stories and activities that  these 6 episodes of the #laityfamilylife The Podcast set out to tell.

The first episode, Grandparents and the Elderly, presents the Holy Father’s Message for the III  World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly and is being released just during  the celebration of the Day.

Next up, What is the IYAB? will be an episode dedicated to the youth of the International Youth  Advisory Board, which has been supporting the Dicastery in the pastoral care of young people  around the world since 2019 and will be in Lisbon for World Youth Day.

The other episodes, which present stories related to the issues of the family, human life, lay people  and Church movements, will be published from September to December.

Born from the creativity of a group of officials of the Dicastery, who – each according to their  expertise on the particular topic proposed – have offered their voices and contributions to initiate  reflection and stimulate the curiosity of the listener, the project of the Podcast was realized thanks  also to the support of Vatican News.

You can listen to the podcasts, in Italian and English, on the Dicastery’s website  www.laityfamilylife.va, on the official Youtube channel and on the Spotify platform.
