The ambiguities of Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, continue to provoke a lively debate even as we pass its one-year anniversary.
If you really want to know the truth rather than a prelates opinion then read Familiaris Consortio (FC), especially paragraph 34. It’s just one paragraph but you will be surprised at how prelates today are corrupting it.
We’re coming up on a year since the publishing of Amoris Laetitia (AL) and of the dubia questions and yet we still have silence on the issues confusing prelates and laity. Well, my solution is to put less importance on AL and suggest people re-read previous Church documents such as the one selectively quoted by AL, JPII’s Familiaris Consortio.
If we can’t get answers then we can read what will clearly provide them. FC, when completely read instead of partially quoted, clearly provides Church teaching and answers to today’s questions. AL can’t change FC and prelates can’t rewrite FC based on their own ideologies if their readers have a working knowledge of the document. Knowledge is power.
Read FC. It’s a beautiful document which is much better written than the piecemeal AL that has the voice of many of the Popes advisors.
