The Good News
· The Cardinal Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops on the Apostolic Exhortation ·
For Amoris Laetitia to be released in the very midst of the Jubilee of Mercy is significant, and to this the text refers three times, directly citing the Bull of Indiction Misericordiae Vultus six times. The document crowns the two years of work of the Synod, whose broad reflection has included all dimensions of the family institution, which today suffers from severe crises throughout the entire world. Human societies, marked by conflict and violence, need reconciliation and pardon starting with their vital core: the family. The Jubilee of Mercy is truly good news for families of every continent, especially those which are wounded and humiliated.
