Let's Dive into Amoris Laetitia Family Year
This year all families are called in a special way to explore the message of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia. One tool available to all families is a series of video reflections with Pope Francis and first-hand testimonies of families from across the world on the theme of the family. The initiative aims to 're-read' the Apostolic Exhortation with the aid of downloadable material prepared for personal and community reflection. See the first two videos below or click here to see the videos and download the reflection guides. Learn more and see resources about this special year on the Amoris Laetitia website.
