Into the Tiber and Wading
I mentioned in my last post that I'd been looking closely at the Mormon Church.  The counterpart to that, obviously, would be leaving the Catholic church which I joined ten years ago.  Oddly, this doesn't seem much of a wrench.   It would be a bit of a wren...

Have any of my fellow divorced Catholics had a particularly positive experience with their parish? The more I look at my situation, as the 'abandoned spouse', the more bitter I become.

I have the strong impression that the church from the parish priests upwards views divorcees not as real Catholics but as nuisances who are there on sufferance.
