Divorced? The doors of your parish are open

February 23, 2012
The reality of divorce is very common nowadays and one of the questions we always ask is, “If Catholic marriage is forever, how should divorced Catholics live their faith?
Some times the easy way seems to be simply to leave God and forget He is the one who can help you in the healing of your soul. No church in the world will close its doors to people who suffer. Like Christ welcomed everyone, his Church welcomes those who are wounded and in need.
The Church does not deny divorced people access to the Sacraments. On the contrary the Church invites them to come to use the welcoming embrace of the catholic community to help them in their healing process.
The divorce process is always painful because you are ending a life with someone with whom you shared everything. How can does the Church support those who are going through such a difficult time?
This week on Perspectives: The Weekly edition Pedro and his guests Lisa Duffy, author of the book Divorced Catholics: Now What? and Fr. Robert Folio, SJ  Rector of Regis College will show us how divorced Catholics live their faith and give us some helpful advice.
Join us for this discussion, Friday on Perspectives: The Weekly Edition at 7 and 11pm ET / 8pm PT. In the meantime, take part in the discussion on Facebook.
