Amoris Laetitia Unpacked

Click HERE for the audio file of Father Reesman’s presentation “Unpacking Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia,” given at Saint Frances Cabrini Parish on Thursday evening, June 23rd, 2016.

The presentation offers a brief chapter by chapter sketch of the topics covered in the Holy Father’s document, several quotations from the document, and also an outline of the argument and conclusions contained in Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia, the chapter that deals most directly with the question of sacramental participation for Catholics who are living outside of valid sacramental marriages.  The presentation also offers some critical commentary on the document.

Including the question and answer period at the end, the presentation is just under 2 hours in length.
