Catholic Divorce, What Went Wrong?

My Dear People,

Contraception!

Few would disagree that the sanctity of the family and the holiness of the sacrament of marriage is under attack. Like the Jewish nation in exile in Babylon, American Catholics have so wanted to be like their unbelieving neighbors, that they have assumed many of the same pagan traits as the culture. The divorce rate among married Catholics is the same, if not greater than their pagan counterparts.

So what happened. Back in the early 1900’s, when mainstream Protestants embraced artificial birth control as morally acceptable, their divorce rate skyrocketed. Later in the 1960’s,

when mainstream Catholics embraced artificial birth control as morally acceptable in their own minds (apart from the still official teaching of the Catholic Church otherwise), they too became like their pagan counterparts.

So the real issue is Life and obedience to the law of God. Sin corrupts the heart and mind, and prevents the conscience from proper development. Until ALL Catholics embrace the teaching of Our Lord on the issues of LIFE, we will continue to be just like our pagan neighbors. Pray for the conversion of our Catholic families to return again back to God’s Law. All true conversion begins in the HEART. Place your hearts and those of your families in Jesus’ most Merciful and Divine Heart.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark Bozada

May we always embrace the law of God in our lives, so that we may be truly free to serve Him.
