Free or $15 suggested donation.


Pope Francis reminded the thousands gathered for World Youth Day 2016 that: “we are God’s beloved children, always… No one is insignificant. He loves all of us with a special love; for him all of us are important: you are important!”

What does it mean to be God’s children and to be loved by him? How can knowing God the Father bring meaning and joy to our lives? How are we to act and live as children of God?

In this video collection of our 2017 Winter Conference, the St. Josemaria Institute welcomes Fr. Jerome Kish who explains how knowing God the Father brings meaning and joy to our lives, and also how we are to act and live as children of God in the world.
