This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of two legal tragedies for families. While the Church loudly protests one of them, Roe v Wade, the other, the Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act, is completely ignored… There are remedies available that can save a marriage by restoring its relationships. The excuse that “we can do nothing” may have been true in past times, but things have changed. We can do something now. There are new remedies to the relationship-ailments that can lead to divorce. The Church’s inaction is contributing to the destruction of families. The Church must stand up to what is being done to families “under the color of law”.
