US implementation of 'Amoris Laetitia' - The Joy of Love
Pope Francis' apostolic exhortation on family life, Amoris Laetitia, is perhaps the most hotly debated Catholic church document since Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's 1968 encyclical letter that reaffirmed the church's ban on birth control.
But not much public focus has been centered on what the document actually says. Even less attention has been given to how local dioceses might implement its program for bishops and priests to see God's grace at work in situations families and marriages face today.
An upcoming event at Oct 5-6 at Boston College hopes to address that lack of attention.
