Summary of Amoris Laetitia: On Love in the Family from the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference

Last edited 11th April 2016

The Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia seeks emphatically to affirm not the “ideal family” but the very rich and complex reality of family life.

The Exhortation Amoris laetitia: On Love in the Family indeed speaks the language of experience and of hope.
