This is an Apostolic Exhortation that stimulates discussion and opening up. This can be clearly seen in the number of commentators who have been willing to share their reflections on the words and concepts contained in "Amoris Laetitia," the long-awaited document written by the Holy Father in the conclusion to the Synod on the family of the past two years.
An example of this lively commenting, demonstrating how the papal text is able to touch the hearts of many people, is given by Radio Vaticana, which has permitted wide coverage, through its microphones, of some interesting points of view on the Apostolic Exhortation dedicated to the family. Interventions have been made, notably, by Mrs. Anna Friso, of the New Families Movement (Focolari); Msgr. Nunzio Galantino, Secretary General of the Italian Bishops' Conference; Chiara Giaccardi, Professor of Sociology and anthropology of the media at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan; the theologian Father Pino Lorizio, professor at the Pontifical Lateran University; and Father José Granados, vice-president of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family as well as professor of dogmatic theology of marriage.
