Amoris Laetitia 313: The Spirituality of Marriage and the Family

amoris laetitia memeLet’s begin a look at Chapter Nine of Amoris Laetitia (online here) The topic is “The Spirituality of Marriage and the Family.”

313. Charity takes on different hues, depending on the state of life to which we have been called. Several decades ago, in speaking of the lay apostolate, the Second Vatican Council emphasized the spirituality born of family life. The Council stated that lay spirituality “will take its particular character from the circumstances of… married and family life”,(Apostolicam Actuositatem 4) and that “family cares should not be foreign” to that spirituality.(Cf. Ibid.) It is worth pausing to describe certain basic characteristics of this specific spirituality that unfolds in family life and its relationships.
