The Bible “is full of families, births, love stories and family crisis” (AL, 8). Hence, the Word of God “is not a series of abstract ideas but rather a source of comfort and companionship for every family that experiences difficulties or suffering” (AL, 22). This panel discussion celebrates the joy and hope of family life as reflected in the Judeo-Christian tradition, particularly as set out in Chapter 1 of Amoris Laetitia
