A conference was held on Oct. 5 and 6 called “Amoris Laetitia: A New Momentum for Moral Formation and Pastoral Practice” organized by Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago and Jesuit Father James Keenan, a moral theologian and Director of the Jesuit Institute at Boston College. It was held at Boston College.
At a first-of-its-kind conference for U.S. bishops and theologians to consider how to better implement Amoris Laetitia, Francis’ 2016 apostolic exhortation on family life, Cupich said the pope focuses on how “God has chosen to reveal the divine reality in the privileged place of family life.”
We’ve put together a number of links that describe discussions and events at the conference. The Jesuit Institute will publish the 5 panel discussions and Paulist Press will publish the 15 presentations from the conference.
