Pope Francis is beloved by many because he locates the heart of Christian faith in justice and care for the most vulnerable, including the very poor and the earth itself. Both in his actions and his public statements, his focus on social justice has been extraordinarily consistent and powerful. Yet he chose to utilize a synod of bishops to bring attention not to poverty or environmental destruction but to the family. The he followed up with an authoritative document of his own, Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love). Why is the social justice pope so concerned with families? How does he connect love and justice? Can this pope's vision of marriage and family connect with new generations of Christians?
