For many Catholics today, the controversy surrounding Pope Francis’ document Amoris Laetitia and connected questions like granting Communion for the divorced and civilly-remarried has become a key entry point to asking questions about the wider crisis in the Church today.
Thus, a number of folks have asked for a one-stop timeline on the Amoris controversy, especially one that could be easily shared with others.
For, as many Cardinals, bishops, priests, and eminent Catholic theologians continue to maintain, Amoris (and Pope Francis’ pontificate in general) is not the source of what ails the Church – it is only a symptom.
So, while not exhaustive by any means, we offer our own simple Amoris Laetitia timeline, limited to the more high-profile events directly connected to the document and its immediate implications. It may be found here.
Put it to good use, and bravo the restoration!
