Every Possible Effort

Two Zenit Saturday comments one last week, and one yesterday take aim at the conservatives’ Annulment Mythology.


Money quote:

USA Catholics are by description very militant and devout; they generally want to live their lives according to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. These type of Catholics make every possible effort to be in good standing with the Church and foster healthy families with active participation in the life of the Church, socially and sacramentally.

    Neil, thank you so much for finding and posting these! As someone who is going through the rather convoluted annulment process myself, I am very grateful to the church for providing this avenue for me and to my compassionate priest for making it as painless as possible. Well, except for finding a parking spot near the diocesan office. That part is rather hopeless, I fear.

    You rock!

    Unless of course that was by Todd, because it is Monday and I cannot read or write. In that case, Todd rocks.

    I’m going for coffee and locking up my keyboard now.

    It is not “mythology” and I know Todd from the internet and will not waste my time with him.

    I am a former catholic as a result of this “mythology” as are three of our five children.
    I have been through the process from top to bottom. It suck. It is corrupted. Its point is to be divorce by another name so that it does not appear to be divorce!

    This “system” provides no method to hold those who abuse marriage to account. this includes all tribunal personnel, bishops and the Pope. None are accountable. The excuse that they are held to account before God is a fraudulent claim when the Church is supposed to be just. It begs the question.

    I have been through the system and the Catholic Church ignores all the corruption I saw and could substantiate, even that which could be proven with documents.

    If anyone disagrees he/she is a liar.

    How is it “conservatives’ Annulment Mythology”?

    The evidence here is that it is Apostate’s mythology, (oh, which is also espoused by those with an irrational, visceral hatred of the Kennedy family.)

    If anyone disagrees he/she is a person who disagrees.

    I feel very sorry for you, that you live without mercy or peace.

    Rather, I live without, knowingly, deceiving myself or others.
