"I am a convert to the Catholic Church and barely knew the basics about the faith. I have learned so much since I have been listening to Catholic Answers Live. Thank you for answering my questions and helping me better understand my faith."

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.
"It is impossible for me to understand on what scientific grounds is founded this resurrection of the old materialistic view of the world that had its first great expression from Epicurus and Lucretius. Nothing that I can see justifies it."
