Amoris Laetitia

Pope Francis' apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love), brings a rich reflection on the mission of the family and on how the Church can equip couples to embrace God's vision for marriage and can offer healing for families who are struggling.

Video 2 – The Family in the Light of the Word of God

Download the accompanying guide for this video.

Through a series of 10 videos, beginning with the chapters of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, the Holy Father, with the help of several families, invites us to journey together to rediscover the family as a gift, despite every problem, obstacle and challenge that families have to face today. Each video is accompanied by a guide that can be used flexibly either by families or by various ecclesial groups (diocesan, parochial, community). Each guide is then subdivided into 4 parts. Each of these can be used for further reflection in the family or in a community, in different moments as well. This tool is intended to be helpful for pastoral ministry to families, and contains proposals and suggestions that can be adapted to the local situation.
