In his latest proclamation, Pope Francis addressed a classic debate within the Catholic Church: The great, timeless and timely topic of Love and Marriage.

Amoris Laetitia (Latin, “the joy of love”) is nine-chapter post-Synodic apostolic exhortation covers a wide array of topics connected with the family, including divorce and same-sex unions, which it notes “may not simply be equated with marriage”— an aspect of the proclamation that has caught some controversy.

The question remains: Did this proclamation go too far for conservatives? Not far enough for progressives?

Reverends Emmett G. Price III and Irene Monroe joined Jim Braude and Margery Eagan on Boston Public Radio for All Revved Up: The Pope-Watch of All Pope-Watches Edition. Listen at the audio link above.
