Pope Francis has published his Apostolic Exhortation entitled in English, “Love in the Family.” This is his summary and reflection on the two synods on family life that have taken place since his election as Bishop of Rome. The exhortation describes a way of loving in family life that includes those who struggle with the teachings of the Catholic Church on marriage, divorce, family life and human sexuality, as well as encouraging those who strive to live the Church’s teachings fervently in their marriages and families. The first link below is the full document in PDF form. The second link is a very brief presentation of some of the main points of the exhortation summarized by Father James Martin, S.J., the author of many popular books on living the Catholic Faith.
Fr. Chiola invites you pray the PENTECOST NOVENA at home, which begins Friday, May 6. Insert will be found in May 1st Bulletin. It may also be found here.
