I never thought I would be one of the many divorced Catholics.
The phrase conjures up images I want no part of, and many church-goers carry around similar images of divorced men and women.
Those I had been close to were supportive but often rightly consumed with their own families and few had time to listen to me cry or the ability to understand how deeply our family’s core had been shaken and altered.
I too struggled with questions about how I fit in, as a divorced Catholic woman, with my faith and with my fellow believers. I had been youth minister before the sudden abandonment, but with our busy vacation Bible school coming up, I was unable to continue my role.I tried to keep my boys involved in church activities, but I had five children from pre-born to 11 and now had half the number of weekends to do all parish, school, Scout, and other activities.My older boys could no longer be counted on to show up for their scheduled masses and stopped altar serving.The teen youth group met every other weekend, but my boys were often away those weekends so dropped out even before they had gotten fully involved.I wondered how many people were afraid divorce is contagious.
