What God Had Joined...
What is the meaning of marriage?
What conditions can make a marriage invalid?
Is a divorced Catholic allowed to receive Holy Communion?
Why is it necessary to go through the annulment process before I can be remarried?

The sacrament of marriage is one of the holiest things instituted by Christ—a lifelong sign of the love between the Church and himself. But although marriage is by its nature a faithful and permanent union, because of human sin it sometimes fails to live up to that sign. 20 Answers: Divorce & Remarriage explains Church teaching on the indissolubility of marriage, and examines the pastoral and canonical realities for Catholics who wish to end their common life and marry another.

The 20 Answers Series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, powerful arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package. Check out dozens of other topics in the 20 Answers Series of booklets published by Catholic Answers Press.

Gift of Self: A Spiritual Companion for Separated and Divorced Faithful to the Sacrament of Marriage

Gift of Self: A Spiritual Companion for Separated and Divorced Faithful to the Sacrament of Marriage
Campanella, Maria Pia
$9.75

These pages were written by one hand and many hearts ... by separated spouses faithful to the sacrament because they are convinced this total gift of self is not an anachronism imposed by the Church to be accepted with patient resignation, but a path of sanctification lived out in the joyous paradox of the Gospel. This book, besides offering numerous points for reflection on the theme of separation, proposes a true and proper path subdivided into stages for groups of people who, living with the suffering of a spouse's separation, wish to remain faithful to the sacrament of their marriage. Among the many suggested prayers and meditations, one in particular, the renewal of the "I Do", has captured the attention of many churches both at home and abroad. The "Marriage Vows Renewal," included in the last stage, is publicized by the Pontifical Council of the Family. An imprimatur has been given to the book by Biishop Richard G. Lennon. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published a recommendation for the book on their Marriage Resource Center: "The greatest strength of Campanella's book is her articulation of the vocation of the separated person to live out his or her marriage vows as a particular witness of God's eternal love for fallen humanity, and the practical path she offers to the realization of this call. Although she does not include personal details of her own situation, it is apparent that Campanella has walked this path herself. This imbues a sense of hope and inspiration to the reader."

Healing After Divorce: Hope for Catholics
Rowland, Susan K
$12.99
A person going through a divorce or having already experienced a divorce has watched life fall apart, has seen dreams end, has known that the future will not be remotely what was imagined. Yet, says Susan Rowland, herself a survivor of divorce after 30 years of marriage, there is hope. God loves us. God's love is not diminished or changed one iota when we get divorced. God is not disappointed in us. God does not think less of us. If we allow it, God will be very close at this difficult and insecure time, guiding us through the rough waters to a peaceful, calm, holy place.

Susan Rowland offers hope and practical ideas for living without marital love, taking care of yourself, telling others, crafting a legal settlement, grieving when a marriage is over, learning to live loved, making decisions, forgiving, building a foundation for your future, trusting in love, facing financial realities, finding your balance, learning to fly, and more.

Primal Loss: The Now-Adult Children of Divorce Speak

Primal Loss: The Now-Adult Children of Divorce Speak
Miller, Leila
$17.95
Seventy now-adult children of divorce give their candid and often heart-wrenching answers to eight questions (arranged in eight chapters, by question), including: What were the main effects of your parents' divorce on your life? What do you say to those who claim that "children are resilient" and "children are happy when their parents are happy"? What would you like to tell your parents then and now? What do you want adults in our culture to know about divorce? What role has your faith played in your healing? Their simple and poignant responses are difficult to read and yet not without hope. Most of the contributors--women and men, young and old, single and married--have never spoken of the pain and consequences of their parents' divorce until now. They have often never been asked, and they believe that no one really wants to know. Despite vastly different circumstances and details, the similarities in their testimonies are striking; as the reader will discover, the death of a child's family impacts the human heart in universal ways.

Rebuilding After Divorce: Making Your House a Home Again

Rebuilding After Divorce: Making Your House a Home Again
Sweet, Rose
$16.95
You CAN rebuild after divorce. It just takes a blueprint!

Whether you've recently divorced or it's been a few years, you can rebuild a life rich in faith, hope, and lots of love. But first you\'ll need blueprints, clear directions to make your house a home again. Where should you start? By laying a solid foundation that will hold up under the drizzle of daily life and any raging storms that may come. And the cornerstone of that foundation is Christ.

For over 20 years, Rose Sweet has brought her wit and wisdom to the separated, divorced, and remarried who often ask, "What is God's will for me?", "What about the kids?", "Where do I stand in the eyes of the Church?", or "Will I ever love again?". These and many other practical considerations are addressed in a way that will both challenge and encourage anyone who has been divorced.

"I found myself falling into a cycle of depression and trying to fill my life with things work, shopping, even hours of distraction on the computer. Rose reminded me what, or I should say Who, I really wanted. Now my life after divorce is not about finding friends on Facebook, but seeking the face of God." - Sharon

"I knew God was with me, but wasn t sure about how to incorporate my faith into the daily details of my life. Rose helped me name and cut through my fears and showed me how to make it all work." - John
