Fr. Pavone on annulment announcement: “Amen!”


Priests for Life


NEW YORK -- In regard to the announcement of Pope Francis about the annulment process in the Church, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of Abolishing Abortion, made the following statement:
“I welcome today's announcement by Pope Francis about the annulment process.
“The Church teaches that what God has joined, nobody may separate. The ‘annulment’ process is not about breaking the marriage bond, but rather discerning whether the conditions were there in the first place for it to come about. And if they weren't, then we should find out as quickly as possible.
“So many who want to be married in the Church are discouraged by the annulment process as it now stands. What was announced today is not a change in teaching, but an effort to help people live Church teaching and reconcile to the Church more quickly. To that, we can all say ‘Amen!’ " 
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit

Less red tape means less expensive and less time to come to a decision. It took a friend seven years for the process to be finalized. I am still in awe that she waited that long.

In other words, "We need the cash from the annulment process faster."

My two brothers-in-law got annulments based purely on telling the priest what he wanted to hear and handing over a very large check. This is purely a way for Catholics to get a divorce with a clear conscience.
