"Today Our attention is directed to one of the most common of them (abuses), one of the most difficult to eradicate, and the existence of which is sometimes to be deplored in places where everything else is deserving of the highest praise; the beauty and sumptuousness of the temple, the splendor and the accurate performance of the ceremonies, the attendance of the clergy, the gravity and piety of the officiating ministers. Such is the abuse affecting sacred chant and music."- St. Pius X, Pope
Mary's Advocates to assist those in "no-fault" divorce
From a reader of this blog and advocate for the family. Let us support one another in these most difficult times.
... Hi David,
You might have friends who would
appreciate the resources developed by Mary’s Advocates, and I ask you to
forward this message. Furthermore, would you please share this on your Vox
may recall, with the non-profit organization Mary’s Advocates, I work to reduce
unilateral no-fault divorce and support those who are unjustly abandoned. In
unilateral no-fault divorce, those who control the split of everything, view
marriage obligations in a way that is diametrically opposed to the Christian
and Catholic understanding. In no-fault divorce, no distinction is made between
the party who reneges on the marriage promises, and the party who is counting
on those promises to be upheld.
The USCCB, National Catholic Register, and
LifeSiteNews have publicized our work. I presented a paper in Rome at a
symposium with welcome letter by Cardinal Raymond Burke. Relevant Radio and Ave
Maria Radio have had me as a guest on their shows. Recently, I was on
ETWN radio with Jerry Usher (listenHERE).

Advocates developed a “True Marriage Proclamation Set.” Please forward this to anyone celebrating a
wedding or anniversary, or give a set as a gift. With a “True
Marriage Proclamation Set,” a man and woman sign their wedding promises as a
keepsake, and designate a 3rd-party arbitrator to manage any marital issues in
accordance with the Catholic Code of Canon Law, or the Bible. They never
want unilateral no-fault divorce in their future. For those who know couples,
we have a 4”x 5” card that can be passed along (see card HERE).
“True Marriage Proclamation Set” was reviewed by Fr. Rocky Hoffman, who has a
doctorate in Canon Law from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome.
He’s also the Executive Director of Relevant Radio and he says, “All pastors recognize the need for better
preparation for the sacrament of Marriage. The ‘True marriage
Proclamation Set’ can be a powerful tool to help spouses deeply consider what
they are doing in the presence of God.”
Resource: Upholding Marriage in
Catholics who did nothing gravely wrong justifying separation of spouses (who
are about to be involuntarily separated, or already divorced), Mary’s Advocates
shows them how to ask the Church to implement the canon law on separation of
spouses. The canons aim toward outcomes that are in accordance with Divine Law,
natural law, and true justice (See Resources > Defending Marriage).
We publicize the Catholic Canon Law and excerpts from the U.S. Constitution
that can be implemented to reduce the injustice of unilateral no-fault divorce.
This could ultimately inspire a spouse to reconcile, because an abandoner would
be held accountable.
secular world tells a separated spouse, or a divorce Defendant, that his
marriage has failed or ended. Mary’s Advocates’ support network is
for those who reject this secular view, but, instead, hope to be reconciled and
know a marriage only ends when either party dies.
