The organizing committee of the Fifth World Meeting of Families said this week during a press conference that rural and indigenous families in Mexico who do not have access to the internet will also be able to have their family photos included in the mosaic that will be presented to Pope Benedict XVI during the event.
Msgr. Enrique Glennie Graue, executive secretary general of the Meeting, said the worldwide response to the call to send in family portraits has been “surprising.” The pictures will be put together to form an image of Pope Benedict XVI.
Under the theme, “The Pope wants to meet your family,” organizers are seeking to collect some seven thousand photos in digital format. Some 1,200 have been sent in so far from 42 countries. Instructions on how to submit a photo can be found at: http://www.mosaicodelasfamilias.com/
