The theme of this year’s conference, the seventh such undertaking, is “Coronavirus in Light of Fatima: A Tragedy and A Source of Hope.” Speakers will focus on whether the COVID-19 pandemic could be part of the chastisement, preceding the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that Our Blessed Mother spoke about in Fatima in 1917 (talks listed below).

The Rome Life Forum was started in 2014, and has hosted some of the most prominent clergy and lay Catholics in the world. For LifeSite’s coverage of previous Rome Life Forums, click the following: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014.
