Bishop Chad Zielinski Introduction to Pope Francis' Postsynodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, The Joy of Love

 My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I am pleased to share with you our Holy Father’s Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, The Joy of Love.

As you may remember, Pope Francis convened two Synods on the family. This document represents his reflections of those gatherings. Also recall, the Holy Father solicited the insights and experiences of all of the faithful with a questionnaire. In fact, those of other faiths were invited to respond to the questions found in the survey.  Pope Francis clearly sought to cast his nets wide in gathering material for his discernment. If you recall too, our diocese participated in that process and in some small measure, we have played a role in Amoris Laetitia.

What is a MOOC?

A MOOC (mooo-k) is a Massive Open Online Course.

Massive means that there will be no limit to how many people can participate.

Open means that there is no cost to participate!

Online means that this event is completely digital. There will be some synchronous events (everyone gathers together) but most will be asynchronous which means you can do it at your own pace.

Course means that you will learn and grow and stretch your ministry and yourselves! But in a MOOC, you get to design your own path or curriculum through the MOOC.
