The Rome Life Forum will be held at the Angelicum (Largo Angelicum 1, Rome) on 17 and 18 May, followed by the annual March for Life on 19 May 2018.

This year’s Forum will be on the theme of “conscience”, as suggested by the late Cardinal Caffarra at the last Forum. The promotion of a false understanding of conscience is undermining the Catholic faith throughout the world and in particular, Catholic teaching on sexual ethics and on the reception of the sacraments. It is essential that we rediscover the true understanding of conscience, so that we can once more order our lives, and our society, according to natural and divine law.

The Forum is intended for international pro-life and pro-family leaders. Please consider sharing this invitation with colleagues in your organisation who might be interested in coming to the Forum.

The programme is available here.

Among the speakers addressing the Forum this year are Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Monsignor Livio Melina (Pontifical John Paul II Institute), Fr. Linus Clovis (Family Life International), Fr. Thomas Crean OP (United Kingdom), Prof. Isobel Camp (Angelicum), Prof. Roberto de Mattei (Lepanto Foundation), Dr. Stéphane Mercier (Belgium) and others.

The Forum will be in English and Italian with simultaneous translation into both languages.

The Rome Life Forum is a unique opportunity for leaders within the pro-life and pro-family movement, and leaders of lay movements concerned with the defence and diffusion of Catholic moral and social teaching, to gather at the heart of Christendom to show their support for one another and forge relationships that will carry forward their work on the global stage. In past years the Forum has gathered around 120 leaders from around 30 different countries.
