What Others Are Saying
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone - San Francisco CA
Rose Sweet's work for the divorced is a good example of the opportunities that Catholics, and all people of good will,should take advantage of. It is necessary not only for their own flourishing, but for that of our nation as a whole. I hope this will be a great success. It is certainly needed!
Bishop Leonard Blair - Toledo OH
This program is a work of the new evangelization ..meant to bring people who might otherwise remain isolated into the loving arms of Christ. It weaves together the beauty of the Catholic faith and a process of healing for those who have divorced. Participants come to understand that it is in the Body of Christ that we find a Love that lasts.
Bishop Thomas G. Doran - Rockford IL
The SURVIVING DIVORCE program is to be commended. It fills a niche too often vacant in materials for Catholic families who suffer the pain of divorce. This program has brought compassion and healing to many in the Rockford Diocese where the program has been in use for some time. The content is faithful to the teaching of the Church and blends empathy for souls with a clear exposition of the truths of the Catholic faith.
Lorrie Gramer, Past President - NACFLM
(National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers) - We were privileged to be the pilot diocese for this wonderful program and have seen it change lives. We hope every diocese will begin to use The SURVIVING DIVORCE program. It's a powerful program that will help to make our Church a true "Marriage Building" community.
Giovanna DeSanti-Medina, Facilitator
Divorce Healing Ministry - Church of St. Luke's
El Cajon, CA - In the years I have facilitated our Divorce Healing Ministry support group, I have never seen anything even close to the responses we're getting with the SURVIVING DIVORCE series. This program makes leading a group so much easier for me! I don't have to worry about coming to the meeting "prepared." All the work has been done for me. More importantly, the DVDs feature "real" people that we all can relate to. The incredible cast of Catholic experts are down- to-earth folks who are easy to listen to and who speak from personal experience with divorce.
This phenomenal DVD series is one of the best evangelization tools I've ever seen! When you can take a wounded soul who has just been betrayed, mocked and spat on by the one who should have loved them the most and actually unite that suffering with our Lord's...God can take their wound and do exactly for them what he did for his son...it's absolutely awesome to think that God can use this divorce recovery program to build his kingdom on earth! But it's true!!
I, for one, am so blessed to be on both the giving and the receiving end of this program. It propels my own spiritual growth and understanding of what happened to me and why...and helps me to bring hope to others.
