Nothing would be in such a case against a church remarriage, since it then strictly speaking would be even no second marriage. Now enter the reformers for an individual (or fundamental) admission of married again to the Eucharist, as well as for the easing of labor law, so that not every employee within the Catholic Church as a result of remarriage to a termination. It is not something Center for Responsible Business would like to discuss. Since the Catholic day 2012 several bishops for such review in dealing with remarried divorcees have been strong. Continue the discussion for, which among others came through the writing of some German bishops 20 years ago. In 2013, several Councils of priests and diocesan synods, etc were identical claims. “In the last month, particularly the handout fu has? r the chaplaincy to the accompaniment of people in separation, divorce and civil remarriage in the Archdiocese of Freiburg” ensures great attention, because there will be addressed Wiederheirateter participation in the sacraments, as well as a non-sacramental blessing God service. Focus and structure of the book the Orthodox Church knows also the principle of the indissolubility of marriage. However, it leaves out pastoral charity also second marriages after divorce and widowhood to.

The aim of the present work is to represent the attitude of the Orthodox Church regarding divorce and remarriage in order to derive possible ways for the remarried divorcees in the Catholic Church. So to meet the demand of the Synod about marriage and family in 1980, more highlighting the pastoral charity in dealing with remarried divorcees attempting one. On the other hand Johannes Paul II. is suited to the great concern of Pope to promote knowledge of the Eastern Churches. “In the apostolic letter Orientale Lumen” (“Latin: the light from the East”) he has repeatedly pointed out to this point. He writes for example: because we indeed believe that the time-honored tradition of the Oriental Churches represents an integral part of the heritage of the Church of Christ, Catholics need to learn above all this tradition, familiar to her and, as far as it the can individual to be able to promote the process of unity.” In the first two chapters of this work, the Bible and Church tradition, so the sources of the Christian faith should be asked about the possibility of divorce and remarriage.

Of particular interest are the words of Jesus and of the church fathers. To understand the attitude of the Orthodox Church to the remarriage, it is necessary to represent the foundations of the Eastern church theology of marriage in a further step. There discussed questions in understanding of the sacrament, the donor of the sacrament and of the Oikonomia practice to help understand the specific behaviors of the Eastern Church. These specific modes of action, expressed in canonical practice and liturgical celebration, be treated in the fifth chapter. At the end of this work is to be acknowledged the Eastern Christian theology of marriage and develops a perspective for remarried divorcees in the Catholic Church.
