We here at The Eye Witness would like to recommend an excellent article on the real catastrophe that is divorce.  It was penned by Mrs Maike Hickson over at, and we cannot recommend it highly enough:

From the article:

"In the recent months, Pope Francis has stated repeatedly that one should have more mercy with those Catholics who are divorced and remarried civilly. In the context of the current discussion within the Church about Divorce, and how to deal with those Catholics who are remarried outside of the Catholic Church, what strikes me is how little explicit attention is given to the Little Ones, to the children, who most vulnerably suffer under a divorce. When we ask for mercy and compassion for the man and the woman who have failed in their reciprocal marriage vows before God and to God; and who have then abandoned their vows, who speaks of the mercy due to the little ones who were left in a lurch by the breach of their parents?"

May we hope that men like Cardinal Kasper might reflect on these thoughts?  Or that the Pope might also do so?

Synods being what they are, at least in recent decades, we have little hope that the profundities of the Faith will find a voice therein.  But we can hope, and we can do our small bit by encouraging the reading of fine articles such as the one written by Mrs Hickson.

Do you think that Cardinal Danneels will reflect on these thoughts?

Mar, the presence of Danneels there is a supreme insult to the Catholic intelligence. Shameful.
