THE DIVORCE SAYINGS OF JESUS AS AN IMPULSE FOR CONTEMPORARY DEBATE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Languages of publication
The situation for divorced and remarried couples in the Catholic Church is one of the most arduous contemporary questions. Having said this, the strict Roman attitude on this issue has evolved from the strict teaching of Jesus himself. The first part of the article consequently discusses the accounts of Jesus’ divorce teachings preserved in the synoptic gospels and in Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians. Each place is considered in its own context and differences are observed. The second part of the article traces the evolution of the Catholic divorce doctrine from the early church to the pontificate of Benedict XVI and presents several suggestions proposing how to help those people in their severe life situation.
