The message of Amoris laetitia
The apostolic exhortation Amoris laetitia (2016) led to a broader and more profound understanding of the many current and pressing issues concerning marriage and family. The great majority of the people of God has enthusiastically welcomed this exhortation as a liberating and good message about experiencing joy in family life. The exhortation, unfortunately narrowed down to one single point, has become the object of severe contention by some people.
In this book the author shows that Amoris laetitia does not represent new teaching, but presents, on the basis of the gospel, a creative renewal of the tradition and completely corresponds to the renewed view of the Second Vatican Council concerning marriage and family. It is also in accord with the teaching of the two previous pontificates, while simultaneously advancing them in a careful way.
