Amoris Laetitia 60: Summary

amoris laetitia memeA peek at the what and why of Chapter Three:

60. This brief chapter, then, will summarize the Church’s teaching on marriage and the family. Here too I will mention what the Synod Fathers had to say about the light offered by our faith. They began with the gaze of Jesus and they spoke of how he “looked upon the women and men whom he met with love and tenderness, accompanying their steps in truth, patience and mercy as he proclaimed the demands of the Kingdom of God”.(Relatio Synodi 2014, 12) The Lord is also with us today, as we seek to practice and pass on the Gospel of the family.

A few commentators I read advised readers to begin at chapter four and absorb from there. Make of that what you will. I don’t think a summation of Church teaching is a waste of time, even if you know it.

For your reference, remember that Amoris Laetitia is online here.
