When does communicating information turn into gossip?
I was hoping you can explain what gossip is. I always thought it was talking about someone's personal business or saying half-truths and innuendos. But is it also repeating what you heard about someone divorcing or getting in trouble? When does communicating information turn into gossip?
A good rule of thumb is not to say anything that we wouldn’t want said about us.
Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What Is Happening and How You Can Help
Divorce. Remarriage. Communion?
“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery” (Mark 10:11-12).
So said Jesus Christ. Yet today, the question of divorce and remarriage is more controversial than ever.
Some in the Catholic Church are proposing that those who have divorced and remarried without an annulment should be given Holy Communion.
The issue is so controversial that even cardinals have been debating the subject in the media.
That’s why Catholic Answers has produced Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What Is Happening and How You Can Help.
It will give you an understanding of this issue, what has been happening, and how you can support the bishops of the Church as they wrestle with this controversial subject.
