Post synod document expected soon

VATICAN (SE): Vatican spokesperson, Father Federico Lombardi, said that Pope Francis’ post-synodal apostolic exhortation could be presented as soon as the second or third week of April, though it will be dated March 19, the feast of St. Joseph.

The March 17 report from the Vatican Insider says that the document will reflect on the conclusions that emerged from the 2014 Extraordinary Synod of Bishops and 2015 Synod on the Family.

The exhortation is expected to be a response to the expectations of today’s world with regard to the pastoral care of the family, starting with the request for a greater openness towards divorced and remarried couples.
