Amoris Laetitia 69: John Paul II

amoris laetitia memeNo pope had more to say about family than Saint John Paul. So a little is recounted here:

69. “Saint John Paul II devoted special attention to the family in his catecheses on human love, in his Letter to Families Gratissimam Sane and particularly in his Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris Consortio. In these documents, the Pope defined the family as ‘the way of the Church’. He also offered a general vision of the vocation of men and women to love, and proposed basic guidelines for the pastoral care of the family and for the role of the family in society. In particular, by treating conjugal love (cf. No. 13), he described how spouses, in their mutual love, receive the gift of the Spirit of Christ and live their call to holiness”.(Relatio Synodi 2014, 18)

I put the hyper link on St John Paul’s document in the text above. In the brief citation above, I noticed “vocation.” An underused description, I think, but a very apt one.

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

  1. If you’re at all interested in knowing . . . the Catholic Dogmas . . . that we *must believe* to get to Heaven . . .

    We list it on our website > > > http://www.Gods-Catholic-Dogma.com

    The Dogmas have in fact … been hidden from you.

    The Catholic God knows . . . what we think and believe . . .

    Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
    “They … became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
    “Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me.”

    The fact that “islam” is not a religion is on Section 113.1 of the site. Mohammed in the “koran” wrote exactly the opposite of the Old Testament Prophets.

    Proverbs 30:4 > “Who hath ascended up into Heaven … what is the name of His Son.”
    koran – maryam 19:35 > “It is not befitting … Allah that He should beget a son.”
