Pope Francis on Family Matters

Hosted by

Pope Francis released a major new paper on family issues today. It’s called “The Joy of Love.” It calls for a more accepting, less judgmental Catholic Church. In it, the Pope opens the door for divorced, remarried Catholics to be fully integrated back into the church, but still condemns gay marriage. Will it change how priests think and behave?
