Joy of Love: A Family Perspective
Extent: Perfect Bound
Publisher: Veritas Publications
In Joy of Love: A Family Perspective, Irish writer, Gráinne Doherty, draws heavily on her own life as part of a family, to link key experiences, relationships and events with Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. The book is small in size, sitting easily into the hand (and heart) and has the format of chapter title, pertinent quotation(s) from Amoris Laetitia, personal reflections on the subject matter and then a designated ‘Reflection Space’ which contains a prayer and scriptural link to the element of the papal document which is the focus of the title of the chapter. The thoughts shared by the author are particularly insightful, humorous at times, and are such as to ensure that the reader can identify with them, thus, hopefully, illuminating and inspiring him or her to read more on the subject. An ideal gift to share with family members who wish to acknowledge and celebrate the love, in its many guises, that is a feature of the Irish clan.

‘Gráinne Doherty’s theological learning is worn lightly in this simple but profound meditation on Pope Francis’ The Joy of Love. A down-to-earth and beautiful book – full of tenderness, wisdom, and gritty realism.’
Gerry O’Hanlon SJ
In Joy of Love: A Family Perspective Gráinne Doherty considers the family in today’s world with its struggles as well as its joys, its strengths as well as its limitations, its lived reality as well as its ideal. Reflecting on her personal experience of family, with warmth, candour, insight and faith, the author considers the family as being constantly in motion and interconnected with everything and everyone. These moving reflections, incorporating different aspects of Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love), will inspire gratitude for the gift of family.
