The Art of Accompaniment
While a weekend like the Family Life Conference can help us better live the joy of love, there are many who see certain areas of Church teaching as being neither joyful nor loving. A few years ago, Pope Francis challenged the Church to practice the art of accompaniment in our shared call to evangelize the world. What does this mean? What does accompaniment look like? How does it help? Mike Landry will answer these questions and more, using Jesus' encounter with two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35) to bring 'accompaniment' to life.
