Amoris Laititia from Pope Francis

The pope asked priests to welcome single parents, unmarried couples and gay people, lamenting the “severe stress” of modern families.

CHR Comment: The new apostolic exhortation urges clergy to show care for a variety of household situations that some have treated judgmentally in the past. The exhortation empowers leaders to adapt solutions to local culture but does not change any official church teaching.
