Amoris Laetitia: "The Joy of Love"
Pope Francis believes that in a world where humanity is often wounded, mistreated, and dominated by a lack of love, the family is the “yes” of God as Love. He believes that the family is still good news for today’s world. The Pope provides beautiful insights into family and marriage – great news for young and old alike to hear.
