Catholic Commute S02E02 Interview with Lisa Duffy about Divorce

Divorce is a tragic reality that we need to discuss

This week we are joined by a very special expert.  One of the major goals of this podcast is to help men (and women!) improve the quality of their marriages.  We all know what the divorce rates are.  While we try to pretend like it could never happen around us, the statistics say otherwise.  Whether you are single, married, or divorced yourself, we all need to learn!

Lisa Duffy is an expert on the topic of what the church teaches about divorce.  Having been through an unwanted divorce herself, she is also an expert about both how to recover, and perhaps even more importantly, some ways to help avoid it.  This is the first interview in what may become a series of interviews that is intended to start a discussion on this very painful topic.

Saints Louis and Zélie Martin,
after having had the desire for religious life,
you heard the Lord’s call to the vocation of marriage.

You are the “parents without equal”
of whom your daughter Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus speaks;
You gave all glory to God
through your humble and patient work,
your commitment to the poor,
and your family life,
where reigned the happiness
of loving and being loved.

You lived your daily life concretely
through the joys and sorrows of your existence.

Listen to our prayer and intercede for us with God the Father for all marriages,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
in the grace of the Holy Spirit.
