Explaining Catholic teaching on marriage, separation and divorce. This booklet explains the Catholic understanding of marriage and why the Catholic Church teaches that divorce and re-marriage in the Church are not permissible. Compassionately written, it places the discussion in the words of Christ, of Scripture and in the Church’s rich tradition concerning the sacrament of marriage, relations between spouses and in particular the revolutionary ‘theology of the body’ of Pope John Paul II. It examines the many and varied influences and pressures placed upon marriage and married couples today. It also explains Church teaching on separation and remarriage and the pastoral care available. Jane Deegan is a married mother of three, has practised as a solicitor, and studied at Maryvale Institute, Birmingham.
