Pope Francis finally reads ‘Amoris Laetitia’

VATICAN CITY—Pope Francis sat down to his desk yesterday to finally crack open his copy of his apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. 

“Ok, let’s see what all the fussin’ is about,” the Supreme Pontiff said to no one in particular before opening up the document.

The Pope allegedly spent the next several hours staring at his computer screen in disbelief, sighing occasionally. Observers noted he would frequently pause and gaze with sadness out his apartment window. “Oh man, do I feel silly,” Pope Francis said after closing his computer. “That’s the last time I leave my laptop open when visiting the German Bishops!”
