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.

Year of Amoris Laetitia Family Video Series

From March to December 2021, the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life - in collaboration with the Dicastery for Communication and Vatican News - released 10 Amoris Laetitia Videos, with the participation of Pope Francis and a number of families from different parts of the world. Starting from the chapters of the Apostolic Exhortation, the Holy Father has accompanied us to rediscover the value and beauty of marriage and the family in the Church and society.

Each video was accompanied by a printable guide, for use by families and the various ecclesial structures (dioceses, parishes, communities) to encourage formation, reflection and prayer in the family.
