The organizers of the 2009 World Meeting of Families have unveiled the official logo for the event, which will have as its theme, “The family: teacher of human and Christian values.”
The ceremony was led by the secretary of the WMF preparation team, Father Enrique Glennie Graue, and by the director of public relations for the meeting, Enrique Gomez.
The official logo for the meeting shows a series of shadows representing a family. “From (the family) is born love symbolized by three hearts and governed by the faith, represented by a cross above,” they said.
“The cross represents the presence of God as the support of the unity of the family,” and “the three hearts unite or represent the family united by love and relationships. The attitude of the members of the family is one of trust and joy in the Lord,” the organizers explained.
They also pointed out that the shadow of the pregnant mother in the logo points to the issue of life, the fundamental value that is promoted, protected and celebrated by the family. “The green color in the logo signifies hope in the future of the family and the color of Mexico,” they added.
The organizers emphasized that the sixth World Meeting of the Families, which will take place in Mexico January 13-18, 2009, will invite families to “reflect on themselves, the situations they are going through and have a Christian appreciation of marriage.”
