The Joy of Love
Share truth of family with mercy, help those struggling, pope says
VATICAN CITY. The same mercy and patience that are essential for building a strong family must be shown to those whose families are in trouble or have broken up, Pope Francis said in his highly anticipated postsynodal apostolic exhortation. The document, "‘Amoris Laetitia’ (The Joy of Love), on Love in the Family," released April 8, contains no new rules or norms.
