I wasn't aloud in the divorced Catholic forum so I post here instead. This is an article I wrote about a former co-worker who suffered a divorce and has since passed on. You can find it on my blog: www.ryanseeksthetruth.blogspot.com (scroll down to Her Name was Joan - link)

I pray for all those who suffer the wound of a divorced heart. If you want to re-post this into the divorced Catholic forum please do.

Ryan - Thanks for the post, it is a good story and sad for many reasons. Sad for the pain we feel when abandoned by someone that was supposed to love us. Sad for the betrayal.
But mostly sad because we allow people to break us so that we have to be hard and uncompromising, blaming God. Abandoning him instead of coming closer and experiencing true and faithful love, we force the love of others away such as the love you showed her only after intense confrontation refusing to be pushed away.
Nothing good comes from such things as war or divorce, unfortunately some live in the middle of it and have to try to function the best they can - not every one has the skills to navigate this alone and come out of it healthy.

Thank you for this post, Ryan ... it's been many years since I was divorced, but it still hurts at times.

God bless you!

It was a wake up call for me that I cannot operate in my practicing Catholic box and consequently expect to be immune from things outside the box. I, pridefully I guess, thought if I follow the rules and 'am good' (of course I have faults, I don't mean I don't) then 'these types of tragedies--divorce' won't happen to me. This happens to other people. It is very humbling and I had to realize there are no guarantees as we all have free will; all I can know is, God is there for me and I do survive bad things. This was liberating for me. The chess board I previously used to plan life has been put away. rosary smile
