Don.t Be Confused About the Faith W Read The Guardian DIVORCE PROBLEM Vatican City (NC) -- The Church holds firmly to Christ's teaching on the indissolubility of marriage and therefore cannot admit a divorced and remarried Catholic to the sacraments, the Vatican's weekly magazine, L'Osser- vatore della Domenica said recently in response to a reader's question. At Special Audience Pope Paul Cautions Women as They Gain Wider Rights in Church, Society00:0000 Vatican City (NC) -- Pope Paul VI told the Italian Union of Catholic Jurists that the Church "is directly interested" in all questions involving women's role in today's changing society.
