Read Amoris Laetitia: Apostolic Exhortation on the Family Online Free - Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation The Joy of Love: On Love in the Family is appreciated as an aid to reflection, dialogue and pastoral practice, and as a help and encouragement to families in their daily commitments and challenges.
This Exhortation is especially timely in this Jubilee Year of Mercy. First, because it represents an invitation to Christian families to value the gifts of marriage and the family, and to persevere in a love strengthened by the virtues of generosity, commitment, fidelity and patience. Second, because it seeks to encourage everyone to be a sign of mercy and closeness wherever family life remains imperfect or lacks peace and joy.

For those who feel this is too long to face, take heart. I didn't actually read the 264 page book formatted by the Vatican and released as a pdf. I was able to copy and paste it into my own document which came down to 50 pages. The pdf's tiny pages, large type, and big margins are what made it so...

Nothing like a letter from a pope to get extremes on both sides riled up. And the media misrepresenting whatever it is they read for whatever agenda is flavor of the week. I'm staying away from discussing the "hot controversial" topics the media obsess over because those topics are such a minuscu...

I was really changed by this. In some ways, more than the other popes during my lifetime, Pope Francis is easy to misunderstand. He often speaks off the cuff, and in an age of media sound bites and journalists who can only see Church teaching with political eyes, Pope Francis is often excerpted a...

Fantastic document on the theology of marriage and family life as a whole. This seems to me to be a great document especially for couples preparing for marriage. Priests could use this as a framework for marriage preparation. Seriously recommended for all married and engaged couples and those who...

Despite what you will read in most of mainstream media and even some Catholic Media circles, this is an excellent document by Pope Francis, and sure it doesn't change any Church teachings but his reflection on the Family is real essential to the future pastoral ministry of the Church. I strongly...

Ak chceš niekoho spoznať, tak si prečítaj jeho knihu. O Pápežovi Františkovi je napísaných množstvo kníh a článkov. Ja som ho mohol spoznať v jeho posynodálnej apoštolskej exhortácii Amoris Laetitia. Text je plný múdrych myšlienok a rád pre celú Cirkev. Verím, že ak by sme aspoň spolovice zobrali...

Practical! It took long time to read this. I only read 10 minutes per day max., so I could meditate on the content). An eye opener sometimes, and an encouragement to think or change.

A very good document on Catholic teaching on Love and Family. Pope Francis reiterates and quotes many previous popes, saints and Church leaders as he explains what the Church teaches us about love and marriage while also calling us to meet others where they are at to help guide them on the journe...
