Pope Francis’ Exhortation on the Family Will Be Published on April 8

At long last!! I know what I’m going to be doing next Friday and Saturday. Let’s all say a few prayers for the church as I think this is going to create some controversy among more than a few members who probably think much differently than we do. .. reyanna

Pope Francis’ long-awaited apostolic exhortation on the family will be published on April 8, and will be known by its Latin name, “Amoris Laetitia” (“The Joy of Love”), on love in the family.

The Vatican announced this today and said it will be presented at a press conference in Rome on that date by Cardinals Lorenzo Baldisseri, general secretary of the Synod of Bishops, and Christoph Schönborn, O.P., the archbishop of Vienna. An Italian married couple will also be on the panel: Professor Francesco Miano, lecturer in moral philosophy at the University of Rome at Tor Vergata, and Professor Giuseppina De Simone in Miano, lecturer in philosophy at the Theological Faculty of Southern Italy in Naples.

There is enormous interest on what Francis will say in this important document that sources say is longer than “Evangelii Gaudium” (“The Joy of the Gospel”) and will be over 200 pages (in the size of Vatican texts).
