Apostolic Exhortation



An Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the theme of the family took place in Rome in October 2014, and an Ordinary Synod of Bishops entitled “The Vocation and the Mission of the Family in the Church and in the Contemporary World” took place in October 2015.

In response Pope Francis has written an Apostolic Exhortation. “Amoris Laetitia”, (‘The Joy of Love’), this was published on 8 April 2016.

This Apostolic Exhortation is available through this link, which will open as a .pdf document in a new tab.
