Franciscan

Br. Colin King on Amoris Laetitia

As I have read "Amoris Laetitia", I have been struck by the wide scope of love the apostolic exhortation speaks about. However, it seems many folks have been waiting for this document simply to read what it says about same sex relationships and divorced/remarried couples. Although these are certainly two critical areas in our pastoral outreach, I was reminded that love covers many aspects in our life and relationships. I hope this exhortation can help us to allow the fullness of love to be in our lives and in our families and even among us friars!

Considering the makeup of "families" in our modern culture, I found Pope Francis’ letter compassionate and understanding. I think the Pope has a loving concern for people’s "situation in life".
