Pope Francis publishes new letter ‘Amoris Laetitia’ – The Joy of Love

 

“The Joy of Love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church.” So opens Pope Francis’ long-awaited apostolic exhortation, “Amoris Laetitia” (“The Joy of Love”). The statement, subtitled “On Love in the Family,” draws on the conclusions of the Synod of Bishops, which gathered over the course of two years to discuss challenges to the family.

“Amoris Laetitia” is above all a pastoral document, which the pope intends to serve as “an aid to reflection, dialogue and pastoral practice, and as a help and encouragement to families in their daily commitments and challenges.” We hope this round up of in-depth coverage and expert analysis will serve to deepen your own reflection and open a fruitful dialogue about the joys and trials of families today.
