Praying with Pope Francis
For the Joy of Love

A book of prayers based on paragraphs from Chapter 4 of Pope Francis’ ‘The Joy of Love’ (or Amoris Laetitia), published in May 2016. Pope Francis uses the lovely passage from St Paul’s first letter to the people of Corinth, so beloved by couples preparing to celebrate their wedding, as the basis for the wisdom he shares on Marriage. In this little book, the Pope’s words are arranged as prayers, for couples, families and communities, to pray for themselves and others.

“Love is patient,
love is kind;
love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way,
it is not irritable, or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong,
but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.” (1 Cor 13:4-7)
