Amoris Laetitia" the Joy of Love

Presentation of the Apostolic Exhortation on "Amoris Laetitia" the Joy of Love by Pope Francis 

Pope Francis has written a letter to the world,"the Joy of Love" . It's about love and the family, a long love letter from the Pope . It has been more than two years in the making , starting with the survey on the faithful across the globe. Then bishops met twice in Rome for discussions .
Pope Franics has listened and responded  
He treats love and family as a joyful vocation  . The Joy of love offers hope and encouragement . But the Pope's also aware of the difficulties and wants everyone to know the church is by their side,ready to offer healing and hope . Pope Francis puts the emphasis on understanding, compassion and mercy. he has seen people suffer , he understands the problems and challenges facing families and unemployment , hostility to a new life , violence and drugs , the need to migrate. it's a long list . But the Pope has even a longer list of positive forces to help the family , virtues such as patience , generosity and hope, fidelity and forgiveness and spiritual strength in the face of adversity . The Joy of love draws upon the rich and profound reality of the daily experiences of family life with thoughts of helping couples to succeed and how to accompany them with compassion they need . The Pope says Yes to sex education at a time when sexuality tends to be tribulized . Francis has special words for priests and all those working families . 
He reminds them that each situation is unique , that they have to listen ,not only with their ears but also with their hearts . When dealing with difficult and irregular situations , church ministers must know how to discern , accompany and integrate , not to condemn , but help all to participate in the life of the church . God's love is always shining beyond the darkness and His tender mercy is available to everyone 



 Pope Francis urges priests to exercise careful discernment over "wounded families" and be merciful, rather than judgemental @Pontifex
Pope further says the church must no longer sit in judgement & throw stones against those who fail to live up to the ideals of marriage family life

1.The Joy of Love
experienced by families
is also the joy of the Church. As the
Synod Fathers noted, for all the many signs of
crisis in the institution of marriage, “the desire
to marry and form a family remains vibrant,
especially among young people, and this is an
inspiration to the Church”.
2. The Synod process allowed for an examination of the situation of families in today’s world, and thus for a broader vision 
and a renewed awareness of the importance of marriage
and the family. The complexity of the issues
that arose revealed the need for continued open
discussion of a number of doctrinal, moral,
spiritual, and pastoral questions. The thinking of
pastors and theologians, if faithful to the Church,
honest, realistic and creative, will help us to
achieve greater clarity. The debates carried on
in the media, in certain publications and even
among the Church’s ministers, range from an
immoderate desire for total change without sufficient reflection 
or grounding, to an attitude that
would solve everything by applying general rules
or deriving undue conclusions from particular
theological considerations.
3. Since “time is greater than space”, I would
make it clear that not all discussions of doctrinal,
moral or pastoral issues need to be settled by
interventions of the magisterium. Unity of
teaching and practice is certainly necessary in the
Church, but this does not preclude various ways
of interpreting some aspects of that teaching or
drawing certain consequences from it. This will
always be the case as the Spirit guides us towards
the entire truth (cf.
Jn 16:13), until he leads us
fully into the mystery of Christ and enables us to
see all things as he does. Each country or region,
moreover, can seek solutions better suited to its
culture and sensitive to its traditions and local
needs. For “cultures are in fact quite diverse and
every general principle... needs to be inculturated,
if it is to be respected and applied”.


4. I must also say that the Synod process
proved both impressive and illuminating. I am
grateful for the many contributions that helped
me to appreciate more fully the problems faced
by families throughout the world. The various
interventions of the Synod Fathers, to which I
paid close heed, made up, as it were, 
a multifaceted gem reflecting 
many legitimate concerns and
honest questions. For this reason, I thought it
appropriate to prepare a post-synodal Apostolic
Exhortation to gather the contributions of the
two recent Synods on the family, while adding
other considerations as an aid to reflection, dialogue and pastoral practice, and as a help and
encouragement to families
 in their daily commitments and challenges.
5. This Exhortation is especially timely in this
Jubilee Year of Mercy. First, because it represents
an invitation to Christian families to value the gifts
of marriage and the family, and to persevere in
a love strengthened by the virtues of generosity,
commitment, fidelity and patience. Second, because it seeks to encourage everyone to be a sign
of mercy and closeness wherever family life remains imperfect or lacks peace and joy.
