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 Cantoris blog?

As you 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 (listen HERE).

Resource:  Wedding and Renewal of Vows

Mary’s 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).

The “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 Crisis

For 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.

The 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.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,


P.S. In my review of the book, Torn Asunder: Children, the Myth of the Good Divorce, and the Recovery of Origins, I highlight the harm caused to children by divorce. This information could lead someone wanting a divorce to change his or her mind.

The Catholic Church directly undermines and destroys marriages using, intentionally and knowingly, the incentive of a nearly certain finding of nullity, once an annulment petition has been accepted.

It is time that the tribunal system is shut down or the Catholic Church should be driven into bankruptcy and sold to the highest bidder.

I have dealt with this corruption since 1989 and the fact that our marriage is a valid sacrament means nothing, NOTHING, to the entire Catholic Church which has ALWAYS ACCEPTED MY WIFE AND HER ADULTEROUS NON CATHOLIC LOVER AS HUSBAND AND WIFE
