A closer look at Amoris Laetitia by Fr Linus Clovis

Father Clovis on Amoris Laetitia.

This week's letter is written by Father Linus Clovis, Family Life International's Spiritual Director, and is a reflection on Pope Francis' Post Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia.

Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation on the Family, Amoris Laetitia (AL) has been received with very mixed reactions ranging from positive jubilation to that of respectful reservation. It is a 60,000 word document that will require time, study and prayerful reflection in order to unravel all of its implications.

(Lk.6:36)
