The Joy of Love
Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, The Joy of Love, is the topic of this Good News Ministries video course. The course involves 3 short (5- or 6-minutes long) videos per week for 9 weeks, i.e., one chapter per week. It can be done in small church groups and classes by using 3 videos per session, with discussion periods after each video. It is free of charge as an archived course.
This is for more than just married couples and parents. If you will ever be in a position or opportunity to help others understand the Church’s teachings on marriage and family, then this is an important book to read — especially in today’s world where secular and immoral beliefs about marriage and family have become louder than the truth.
We all — every Catholic and indeed every Christian — increasingly need to be able to speak up about God’s design for marriage and family. We are called by Christ to evangelize the world into embracing God’s design. He longs to empower us to win back many who have gone astray and to strengthen couples’ resolve to have strong, holy marriages and to become parents who give the world the gift of children who are raised in the truth.
