Malta’s bishops lament divorce as lawmakers consider legalization

Catholic World News - October 18, 2010

The bishops of Malta have issued a pastoral letter in defense of the indissolubility of marriage as the nation’s lawmakers consider the legalization of divorce.

“At no point does Jesus specify any form of condition or manner in which divorce could be instituted,” the bishops said in their October 15 letter. “Perhaps if Jesus lived among us today, we would tell him: ‘Lord, all over the world one finds divorce.’ We are sure that his answer would remain the same: ‘It is because of the hardness of your hearts.’ It is our attitude which must undergo a change and not marriage!”
