Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) Pope Francis

The Joy of Love experienced by families

is also the joy of the Church. As the

Synod Fathers noted, for all the many signs of

crisis in the institution of marriage, “the desire

to marry and form a family remains vibrant,

especially among young people, and this is an

inspiration to the Church”. As a response to

that desire, “the Christian proclamation on the

family is good news indeed”.


This is the opening paragraph of Pope Francis' exhortation on the family. it is his response to the Synod on the Family that has taken place over the past two years.

He gives a beautiful reflection St Paul's hymn to love found in 1 Corinthians 13, often used at weddings. The whole letter deserves reading and reflection. As he says take time and do not rush through it.
