Pope Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) brings together the results of the two Synods on the Family convoked by the Pontiff in 2014 and 2015.
A fair reading of the document can only conclude that the Pope has listened well and that the synodal process succeeded in ensuring that the realities of family life, the many joys but also struggles and dilemmas faced by young couples, single parents, aging couples, children and young people, abandoned spouses and people in second unions, and so on, were heard, acknowledged and brought successfully into dialogue with the Good News of the Gospel and Church teaching.
This book serves as a companion and study guide to Amoris Laetitia, ideal for individuals and groups looking for an aid to help unpack the Pope’s words on love in the family.
