"Joy and Mercy" [Alegria e Misericórdia, in the original]  is the name of the book that gathers together articles from various theologians on the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia. Miguel Almeida, provincial of the Portuguese Jesuits, is the book’s coordinator, and presented it in Lisbon on the 11th in Brotéria, the cultural space of the Portuguese Jesuits in the capital.

Austen Ivereigh, Antonio Spadaro, sj, James F. Keenan, sj, Conor M. Kelly, Andrea Grillo, Irene Guia, aci, or Stella Morra are some of the authors who analyze and reflect on the impact of Pope Francis' document dedicated to families. The coordinator of the book stressed that the creation of this work is linked to the desire not to let go of a document as important as Amoris Laetitia, where important theological concepts for married and family life, such as freedom, conscience and accompaniment, are addressed.

The presentation relied on the testimony of two couples, from different generations, who stressed the most relevant aspects of the pastoral transformation that the Exhortation points out.

The book is edited by Frente e Verso, a publisher of the Society of Jesus.
