.- In order to confirm the commitments made to the family and human life during the World Meeting of Families last July in Valencia, Spain, the Marian Shrine of Torreciudad has announced it will host the 17th Marian Day of the Family on September 16.

The theme of the event will be “The Family, Sanctuary of Life,” and will be attended by Archbishop Manuel Ureña of Zaragoza, who will preside at a Mass with an expected 10,000 people.

Father Javier Mora-Figueroa, rector of the Shrine, said the event this year is intended to “confirm the commitments to life, the family and the integral development of all Spaniards outlined at the 5th World Meeting of Families held in Valencia.”

“The purpose is to make of this event a day of thanksgiving for the gift of Holy Father’s presence in Spain and to encourage participants to attain concrete goals in day-to-day life, through reflection and personal commitment, in defense of the identity of the family as a common good for humanity,” he added.
