A Cardinal on the Divorced

A cardinal has said the synod on the family in October must not forget those who are left alone by divorce.

Speaking to the National Catholic Register, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna said “we have to speak about mercy and be merciful to the divorced and remarried, who often experience many sufferings and troubles.”

“And if we speak about mercy for those who are remarried, we must also speak about those who are left alone,” the cardinal said.

He said he always insists on the pastoral accompaniment of people who have divorced and remarried.
