The Vatican on Friday, April 8 2016 published the much-awaited Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis titled “Amoris Laetitia” – On the Joy of Love.
The Document on love in the family, signed on 19 March 2016, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, contains the results of the two Synods on the family convoked by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015. In 2014 the Vatican hosted an Extraordinary Synod which was in preparation for the October 2015 Ordinary Synod.
An estimated 190 bishops from around the world participated in each gathering. The 2015 Synod’s theme was “the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and the modern world.”
