October 3, 2021, 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Gospel of Mark, Chapter 10:2-16
As we look at the Gospel of Mark today, the Pharisees challenge Jesus about divorce. In today’s two-minute reflection, I briefly address the issue of annulment (which is not a Catholic divorce), clarifying an annulment to be a finding that a marriage did not exist according to Church law (even though a civil marriage may have existed).
While pursuing an annulment in the Church may seem a bit daunting, I highly recommend discussing the topic with your priest if you find yourself in need of one. It is a worthwhile process for many reasons.
