About the Book:
‘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.
