Pope Francis releases Amoris Laetitia

So you may have heard that Pope Francis has released a new exhortation called Amoris Laetitia or in English "The Joy of Love". It's a document that has come from the Synod of Bishops on the Family and from bishops’ conferences from around the world. We must profess that in the Youth Office, we haven't quite got around to reading the 250 odd page document just yet. So we've done some googling and discovered that there are a lot of articles, so here two that peaked our fancy. First up is Bishop Barron with a brief Q&A on the document in a blog post and the second is a ten point article on some of the key points published by an american Jesuit. We will keep you up-to-date as more resources come to hand but this might just whet your appetite.

Would you like to add write an article?
