Saint of the Day

St. Augustine (354-430)
Raised a Christian, Augustine lost his faith and led a wild life. After living with a woman for many years, having a son, and dabbling in heresy, he was converted by the prayers of his mother and help from St. Ambrose. He sold his property, gave the proceeds to the poor, and founded a monastery. He became a monk, priest, preacher, bishop, and Doctor of the Church.

Reflections from the Saints

Our hearts were made for You, O Lord, and they are restless until they rest in you.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2384

Divorce is a grave offense against the natural law. It claims to break the contract, to which the spouses freely consented, to live with each other till death. Divorce does injury to the covenant of salvation, of which sacramental marriage is the sign. Contracting a new union, even if it is recognized by civil law, adds to the gravity of the rupture: the remarried spouse is then in a situation of public and permanent adultery.
