AMORIS LAETITIA – THE JOY OF LOVE

Amoris Laetitia, ‘The Joy of Love’, is the 2016 post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation “on Love in the Family” by Pope Francis. It brings together the results of the two Synods on the family convoked by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015. There is no change to the Church’s Teaching but the Pope does encourage us to consider how we extend Pastoral care and support to those who are unable to follow the Church’s teaching on Marriage and the family. For more information please consult the website of the Bishops of England and Wales: www.cbcew.org.uk
