Confraternity of Catholic Clergy statement on marriage

The British Province of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy has published a statement on Marriage in the teaching of the Catholic Church. Parish priests may wish to download the pdf version for distribution.

This statement is a good summary of Catholic doctrine concerning marriage. Ordinarily, it might be considered simply a workmanlike pastoral document for sharing, to avoid different priests having to compose their own text. In the present circumstances, it has the character of a courageous statement of what we have always believed and continue to believe, despite the efforts of some to undermine Catholic teaching or compromise with the values of the world.
