Jan 08, 2017, 09:00 AM

Father Gareth Byrne is a priest of the Archdiocese of Dublin and he spoke to Brenda Drumm about his new book of prayers, meditations and reflections entitled ' Love One Another as I Have Loved You'. The book, published by Veritas, is a response to the publication by Pope Francis of Amoris laetitia, his apostolic exhortation ‘on Love in the Family’ (2016).

This collection includes reflective pieces on love, family, friendship, community and on the Church as the family of Christ. With the World Meeting of Families to be hosted by the Archdiocese of Dublin in August 2018, this is an opportunity to begin to think and pray in new ways about what family and relationships mean to us.

'Love One Another as I Have Loved You' is available from Veritas bookstores for 4.99 euro.
