Priest refutes senator: ‘Divorce will never be pro-family’

A Catholic priest urged Senator Riza Hontiveros not to eschew misrepresentation on divorce after claiming that it is “pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-children”. Fr. Jerome Secillano, Executive Secretary of the bishops’ public affairs committee, said that such claim contradicts the provisions of the 1987 Constitution. “Is she saying now that the Family Code and our Constitution are anti-family, anti-marriage, and anti-children since they do not guarantee divorce?” Secillano said. “Divorce can never be pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-children,” he said. “Let’s not twist facts just to suit a particular agenda.” On the other hand, the priest stressed that legalizing divorce in the…

Reach out to unmarried couples, support newlyweds, pope urges

ROME— The Catholic Church must reach out to couples living together without being married, Pope Francis told those involved in family ministry in the Diocese of Rome. The church’s outreach should extend “also to those young people who choose to live together without marrying. We must witness to them the beauty of matrimony,” the pope said Sept. 27 during an evening meeting at the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the cathedral of the Rome Diocese. Some 850 priests, permanent deacons and married couples involved in diocesan and parish projects to prepare couples for marriage and minister to families met with…

If we want school shootings, break up the family

WE’VE seen them on TV and videos. We have seen the anguish, anger, and unbearable fear of young people who survived.  One survivor who was being interviewed, just faltered: “I can’t do it, I’m sorry, I can’t,” as he choked and walked away. Entering the feelings of the children who were inside one of those classrooms should help us think seriously, and decide that we do not want any of those elements that have led to this hellish state in the most influential nation in the world. And so it should lead us to research with a most non-prejudiced mind…

DIVORCE….Why not?

1. Divorce in the Philippines is not legal but it looks like there are more couples getting an annulment. Isn’t this enough reason to legalize divorce? The increasing numbers may be due to a greater awareness of this procedure than before. We get to know more about annulments or separations today especially if they involve movie or society personalities. The media loves to elaborate on the details but no one seems to be paying attention to the millions of good marriages around, which do not see print. In Defense of Marriage: Why is divorce no good? 2. The Philippines is…

My wife and I were divorced. Then my son started hanging out with a local family

  March 23, 2017 (ThePublicDiscourse) — The most riveting, wise, and helpful statement I have heard in recent years was shared by Ifeyinwa Awagu of Lagos, Nigeria, in a short video prepared for the 2014 Vatican Humanum Colloquium on the Complementarity of Man and Woman: The couple is the locus, it’s a starting point, but it’s a ripple . . . Whatever I do in my marriage, the circle keeps increasing, keeps widening, until it covers the whole world. Marriage is beyond us. It’s about the society. It is your own project for the world. Ify’s statement is pure gold, displaying immense truth and…

CBCP STATEMENT ON THE DIVORCE BILL

The fact that we’re one of the last few countries without a divorce law until now speaks volumes about us as a nation. No doubt, those who associate divorce with being progressive would laud our legislators who are currently raring to pass a divorce bill in Congress. With due respect to them, we beg them to make room for more reasoned debates on the issue. Since they act as representatives of the people who elected them in office, we humbly suggest that they submit their personal opinions to a further consultation with their constituents. Perhaps they can also consult experts…
