In his post-synodal exhortation Amoris laetitia Pope Francis calls upon the church to “make room for the consciences of the faithful, who very often respond as best they can to the Gospel amid their limitations, and are capable of carrying out their own discernment in complex situations”.
Respect for personal conscience and pastoral discernment should also guide the church’s theological stance and pastoral attitude toward contemporary forms of living together, especially those that do not conform to the ideal of exclusive and lifelong marriage. This volume explores the implications of this vision, with particular regard to the divorced and remarried.
Thomas Knieps-Port le Roi holds the INTAMS Chair for the Study of Marriage & Spirituality at the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
