    Anyone else seen any non-BBC articles on this? The BBC love Pope Francis a bit too much methinks and often tries to paint him as some champion reformer. Which I'm never too sure about how accurate it is...

    Still nice to see people getting married by a Pope!

    Oh for goodness sake. It's not a "shift in attitude" it's how it has always been. Sure, there haven't been any papal marriages recently, but it's not a... Grr... *mumbles off into the distance about the media twisting things*

    All the people married there will have been validly married. Anyone who was married before will have had their marriage annulled, anyone with children from previous relationships are, and always have been, welcome to get married in the church.

    And if someone gets divorced and then remarried without seeking an annulment, then the second marriage isn't a sacramental marriage, only a legal one. The first marriage is still sacramentally valid, therefore still stands in the eyes of the church. You can't get remarried without committing bigamy.

    Edit: this is probably a better link: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/sto...ns/1403766.htm

    Not to be confused with George Stack, Archbishop of Cardiff.

    Tiz a great post! I especially liked the point about people expecting others to walk on water, when even St Peter couldn't! :yep:

    I've enrolled on a PhD at Royal Holloway, and today was the first day of Freshers' Week (or Welcome Week, as it's called at RHUL). Picked up some leaflets from the chaplaincy. It appears there is a Cath Soc, and there are two Catholic Masses a week in the chapel - Friday lunchtime and Sunday evening.

    Might have to try and make Friday one of my 'going-into-uni' days (am living at/commuting from home) :beard:

    Hi... can I post here? I'm not sure if I'm Catholic or not. When I was a kid I'd go to church and I went to a Catholic school. I do believe in God but I disagree with a lot of what the Church says, is that allowed? :dontknow:

    Oh okay. Some of the posts in this thread are a little intimidating to be honest. I don't ever use phrases like "thanks be to God" and I don't observe any holidays apart from Christmas. You all seem to be very serious and devoted whereas I am full of doubt. Me and God aren't friends.

    I am very devoted but not very serious, dw! There are differing levels of belief and adherence in this Soc. You don't have to be besties with God to be in the Soc :nah:

    :hugs:

    How come you don't observe Easter, if you don't mind me asking? I'm full of doubt too btw, so you're def not the only one :hugs:
