“We need to overcome this distortion, also because the key chapter in Amoris Laetitia is the fourth one: a true manifesto for married love”. In an interview with SIR news agency, Card. Kevin Farrell, Prefect for the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, warns against the “trap” of “polarising” Amoris Laetitia around its eighth chapter only, one year after the publication of the document. “The problems, the wounds and the many kinds of suffering experienced by the family are evidence of the serious crisis of marriage and the family and daily affect people in their very flesh”, the cardinal stated, referring to the ongoing debate. Nonetheless, the “great challenge of Amoris Laetitia is that of pointing to authentic human and Christian love as the only force capable of saving marriage and the family”. “It is this love that should be placed at the centre of the family, as already suggested by the Second Vatican Council, and as repeatedly stressed by Pope Francis throughout his Apostolic Exhortation, especially in chapters IV and V”, Card. Farrell explains.
