NOTE: The companion DVD is NOT included in this eResource. Please order it separately

This bundle gives you everything you need to hold a learning event on The Joy of Love or help your leaders/members study it on their own. Your license gives you permission to share the documents within your entire parish, school community, or diocesan office. We also give you the Microsoft Word source files for supporting documents so you can edit them yourself.

Ways to use this bundle:

  • Simply share the video and file links with your staff, leaders, or parish members so they can watch at home.
  • Send out the viewing link, and then use our tools to facilitate discussion at a later (perhaps regularly scheduled) meeting.
  • Show the video or Powerpoint at a meeting of your staff, pastoral council, faith formation parents, RCIA group, confirmation group, or whole parish—and lead them in discussion.
  • Use the video to prepare for giving the Powerpoint presentation.

The kit includes:

  • Powerpoint Presentation (53 slides) - Beautifully designed slides with short bullet points, as well as more detailed talking points in the presenter notes.
  • Online video (36 minutes, excluding discussion time) - A simple, narrated online video presentation (using the same Powerpoint presentation) giving an overview of the document. Add-on DVD available (see below).
  • Event Outline (2 pages) - Helpful tips on how to organize and facilitate a parish gathering.
  • Detailed talking points (15 pages) - Full notes to speak from, with references to the related paragraphs in Pope Francis' document for each point.
  • Presentation summary (2 pages) - A shorter bullet-point summary to distribute or use as the basis for later discussions.
  • Reflection questions (2 pages) - Discussion questions for each section of the presentation.
  • Prayers (4 pages) - An opening and closing prayer for your gathering, as well as two prayers to take home (one for couples and one for families).
  • Logo - Use our artwork to make flyers or posters promoting your event.

If you have limited Internet access or prefer the convenience of a physical disc, please add the DVD to your order.

Note: You are allowed to email links to the video and files, but not to post the links on your public website. Thank you for cooperating with our honor system regarding our eResource licenses.
