Some observations on Pope Francis’s second Apostolic Exhortation
Pope Francis’ highly-anticipated post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation, “Amoris Laetitia” (The Joy of Love) on love in the family was presented to journalists in the Aula Giovanni Paolo II of the Holy See’s Press Office at 11:30 CET on 8 April, . Employing a similar format to the Press Conference for the formal release of Laudato si’, presentations were given by both clergy and laity:
- Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, general secretary of the Synod of Bishops;
- Cardinal Christoph Schönborn OP, Archbishop of Vienna, and
- Professor Francesco Miano, lecturer in moral philosophy at Rome’s University of Tor Vergata, and his wife, an Italian married couple. (Italian version only). Professor Giuseppina De Simone in Miano, is a lecturer in philosophy at the Theological Faculty of Southern Italy in Naples.
