This year, the Summer Family Encounter in Spain took place in Barcenilla (Cantabria), from August 15-19. There were members of the Home participating from Spain, Italy, and the United States.
The recent document of the Spanish Episcopal Conference about Marriage and Family was discussed: "The truth of the human love. Orientations about the conjugal love, the ideology of gender, and the legislation of the family."
The first day Monica Fernández Beitia gave the talk, the second day Manuel González Bavilla, and the third day Esmeralda Pérez Ortega.
They were days of get-together and fraternity, and it was wonderful to be able to meet the families of the Home from Italy and from the United States that came from so far away in order to spend these days with us.
On Saturday we made a pilgrimage to a santuary of Our Lady and she showed us in a special way the maternal love she has for all the members of the Home.
The Family Encounter finished Sunday morning with mass celebrated by Father Rafael Alonso, Founder of the Home of the Mother.
