Remarriage in the Catholic Church: A Couple's Guide
Author: Joseph & Linda Sclafani
|All marriages have challenges, but for Catholic couples preparing for remarriage, these challenges are unique. The spouses will have gone through the death of a partner or divorce and will have been deeply affected by these experiences. And often remarriage involves the blending of families, a challenge in and of itself.|
Here the authors, as practicing Catholic clinicians, share their personal and professional experiences, as well as insightful recommendations for couples who are re-marrying. They seamlessly blend real-life stories, common sense, and the spiritual and sacramental values of the Catholic Church.
Topics include: 1) marriage as a sacramental vocation; 2) ways to handle loss and grief issues after a marriage ends (due to divorce or death); 3) tips on self-forgiveness and reconciliation; 4) frank discussion of issues all couples must face; and 5) how to build and grow a healthy relationship. The book also addresses issues related to children?ependent minor through adult age?nd how they respond to a parent? remarriage.
This is an excellent guide for all couples who want to re-marry in the Church but aren't quite sure how to proceed.
