A Short Commentary on Divorce and 1 Corinthians 13

" "If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal..."

YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING, THOSE OF YOU THAT THINK DIVORCE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR MARITAL WOES. YOU HAVE NO CLUE AS TO WHAT YOUR SELFISH ACTS ARE ABOUT TO DO TO YOUR CHILDREN. ASSUMING GOD WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO GRANT YOU THE PRIVILEGE, THAT IS. AND IF YOU'RE THINKING OF DIVORCE, THEN, IN MY LESS-THAN-HUMBLE-OPINION, YOU ARE AND WERE NEVER DESERVING OF THEM. BUT THEN, AGAIN, YOU ARE STILL VALIDLY MARRIED DESPITE THAT, AREN'T YOU? YOU WILLINGLY CHOSE, DIDN'T YOU?

"...And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing..."

DO YOU KNOW OR EVEN CARE THE CONFUSION YOU WILL HAVE SOWN IN THE MINDS OF YOUR CHILDREN? DO YOU KNOW OR EVEN CARE THAT YOU WILL HAVE ABANDONED YOUR VOWS? DO YOU KNOW OR EVEN CARE THAT IF YOU FOUND CAUSE TO BREAK YOUR VOWS ONCE, YOU CAN VERY WELL DO SO AGAIN? AND AGAIN? AND AGAIN? DO YOU KNOW OR EVEN CARE THAT IF YOU DO, THE BLEEDING OF YOUR CHILDREN'S HEARTS WILL START ANEW, EACH AND EVERY TIME?

"...And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth..."

DO YOU HAVE AN INTERNET, WORKPLACE OR OLD "FRIEND" YOU HAVE BEEN SECRETLY CHATTING AND MEETING WITH? DO YOU ALREADY LIVE WITH ONE OF THEM, SEPARATING YOURSELF FROM YOUR LAWFUL SPOUSE, CHILDREN AND HOME? DO YOU EVEN KNOW OR CARE THAT YOU'RE HAVING AN AFFAIR? IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT "GOOD" YOU ASCRIBE TO IT - DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU. ARE. HAVING. AN. AFFAIR? 

"...Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away..."

WHAT BECAME OF YOUR VOW TO HONOR AND OBEY? WHAT BECAME OF YOUR VOW TO STAND FAST WITH YOUR SPOUSE FOR BETTER OR WORSE? WHAT BECAME OF YOUR VOW TO STAND BESIDE YOUR SPOUSE WHETHER RICH OR POOR? WHAT BECAME OF YOUR VOW TO NURSE YOUR SPOUSE IN THEIR "SICKNESS" OR TO REJOICE WITH THEM WHEN THEIR "HEALTH" RETURNED? WHAT BECAME OF THE PERFECTION YOU HAD FOUND IN YOURSELF AND YOUR SPOUSE? DID YOU FIND IT WANTING IN YOUR SPOUSE AND LOST ANY INTEREST IN THEM? OR DID YOU FIND IT WANTING IN YOURSELF AND SIMPLY CHOSE TO IGNORE IT?

"...When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face..."

YOU WERE NOT A CHILD! YOU WERE AN ADULT! YOU UNDERSTOOD ALL WHAT MARRIAGE WAS ABOUT! IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT YOU SAW IT ONLY THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY, AND NOT FACE TO FACE! WHO DOES?? WHO HAS??? WHO CARES????

"...Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known. And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity." (1 Corinthians 13)

YOU APPARENTLY KNOW NOTHING OF THE PART YOU ARE ABOUT TO PLAY IN THE MOST UN-CATHOLIC AND UN-CHARITABLE ACT ONE COULD IMAGINE, OUTSIDE OF ABORTION. IF YOU CONTINUE YOUR MADNESS YOU WILL BE KNOWN, ESPECIALLY BY YOUR CHILDREN. AND IT WILL BE TO THE CHILDREN THAT YOU WILL EVENTUALLY OWE THE EXPLANATION OF WHY YOU DECIMATED THEIR LIVES, UN-CEREMONIOUSLY RIPPED THEM FROM THEIR NUCLEAR FAMILY AND FOREVER ALTERED THEIR LIVES FOR DECADES AND YEARS TO COME.

AFTER THAT, YOU CAN EXPLAIN TO THEM YOUR DEFINITION OF "CHARITY" AND WHY IT WAS SUPERIOR TO THAT OF ST. PAUL...OR OF CHRIST.
