Mosaic of portraits being prepared for World Meeting of Families 2009

.- The organizing committee of the Sixth World Meeting of Families has invited the families of the world to send their pictures to be part of a “Mosaic of the Families,” which will be unveiled during the event in January of 2009 in Mexico City.

The Ruiz Tolentino family of Ecapetec, Mexico, was the first to respond to the call by the organizing committee, which will use the pictures for the mosaic that will be an image of Pope Benedict XVI.

Up to now some 300 pictures have been sent in from 25 countries around the world.

Families interested in sending in their pictures have until December 12, 2008, to send them to the following email addresses: [email protected] (Spanish) and/or  [email protected] (English).

Pictures should be sent as JPGs, with the name of the head of the family (or of the one sending the picture), the family’s last name, the country of origin and the city of residence. The pictures should not exceed 4 megabytes and should not be taken with a cell phone camera
