Seize the Day has full coverage of the release of Pope Francis’ new apostolic exhortation “Amoris Laetitia,” which translates into “The Joy of Love.” The document, which focuses on encouraging the family, urges the faithful to consider the complexities of people’s lives and to respect people’s consciences when it comes to moral decisions. Gus talks with a host of experts including Fr. Paul Check, of Courage International, Dr. John Grabowski, associate professor of moral/ethical theology at Catholic University of America, and Dr. Pia de Solenni, associate dean at the Augustine Institute.

Afterwards, Gus has a round table discussion on the document with Fr. John Devaney, Dominican friar of the Province of St. Joseph and host of Word to Life, and Dr. Christopher Kaczor, professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University and author of the book “The Seven Big Myths About Marriage.”
