In the Spring of 2016, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia - The Joy of Love. Although many people have seen selected passages, few Catholics have had the time to read the entire document.

The Newman Institute of the Diocese of Joliet in Illinois—with the creative and collegial support of our Communications and Information Technology departments—is pleased to share this daily blog.  Subscribers will journey together through Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia'—one paragraph per day--starting on August 1, 2016.
