Catholic Answers is making their booklet Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What Is Happening and How You Can Help available via download through Amazon for FREE for the next five days.

“To help people understand the Church’s teachings on this issue and to cut through the confusion that the news media has generated, we are making this booklet available free of charge,” Catholic Answers senior apologist Jimmy Akin said.

The booklet, Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What is Happening and How You Can Help, explains the teaching of the Catholic Church on these matters, which were discussed at the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops last October and will continue to be discussed at another general assembly this October.

Many Catholics were concerned by proposals made at the general assembly regarding homosexuality, divorce, and Communion. Those concerns were recently renewed when it was learned that the heads of the German, Swiss, and French bishops’ conferences sponsored an invitation-only “day of study” in Rome on May 29, apparently to build support for changing Catholic teaching and practice on these issues.

Akin said Catholic Answers’ Divorce, Remarriage, Communion booklet gives people a clear understanding of the issue and informs Catholics how they can support the bishops of the Church as they wrestle with these controversial subjects.

Catholic Answers (Catholic.com) is the largest lay-run apostolate of Catholic apologetics and evangelization in the U.S. It is dedicated to helping good Catholics become better Catholics, bringing former Catholics “home,” and leading non-Catholics into the fullness of the Faith.
