The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia) brings together the results of the two Synods on the Family convoked by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015.
Striking for its breadth and detail�and firmly grounded in the challenges of family experiences�the Joy of Love affirms the rich and complex reality of family life with pastoral care, speaking the language of experience and hope.
Pope Francis reaches out to married couples, parents, and children in a spirit of accompaniment, asking everyone to read slowly, paying special attention to what applies most to our different needs. The Joy of Love is truly remarkable for its practical and concrete suggestions. It also challenges us to be understanding in the face of complex and painful situations.
Essential reading for pastors and anyone involved with the family apostolate.
