"Loneliness and other difficulties are often the lot of separated spouses, especially when they are the innocent parties. The ecclesial community must support such people more than ever. It must give them much respect, solidarity, understanding and practical help…" (Familiaris Consortio p. 83)
Separation or divorce is never part of the plan. When you married, it was for life. But then the unthinkable happened. Separation or divorce, even when necessary, comes with immense grief and pain. But you need to know that you don’t have to go through it alone. The Church in the diocese of San Diego is here to provide support, guidance, and resources as you pass through this difficult time of transition to a new life with new hopes and opportunities.
