the joy of love

Apr 9, 2016

Late last night NZ time Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation “Amoris Laetitia – The Joy of Love” was promulgated. While it is directly the follow-up document after the two synod gatherings of 2014 & 2015 on the topic of the family, it is more significantly the fruit of the struggle of the Church in recent decades to communicate the beauty of truth (especially on marriage and family life), in an environment where family life is more complex than ever before.

One magazine gives 10 summary take-home points at this link.

Bishop Robert Barron gives his initial comments at this link.

Below you can see one of the people chosen to present the document yesterday give a few pointers in the Rome Reports comment.

And at this bottom of this page is a link to the complete PDF document. On a Sunday when Peter is encouraged to feed the sheep, we are gifted this powerful and ground-breaking document as food for all of us with the desire to grow.
