Ask the Church to Intervene Against Divorce
[Formerly named Vindicate Rights Petition]
If you are a faithful spouse who is heartbroken and abandoned, you can send a plea to the diocesan shepherd, the bishop, and ask him to try to intervene to stop a break-up. Mary’s Advocates provides a template petition containing this plea.
Your abandoning spouse may be inspired by an invitation from the bishop to remember his or her marital promises, and remember the original heartfelt desire to be a dedicated spouse.
