I am struggling with the divorce issue when evangelizing/talking to ex-Catholics. I work in a health system and it is an amazing environment to speak with professionals and patients about Jesus and His church. One of the doctors that I work with belongs to a non-denominational church and is enrolled in a theology program-he plans on becoming a pastor. We had a super interesting conversation and I mentioned to him that I was Catholic and this is what we believed on a specific topic. Later in the conversation he said he found it interesting that I was a Catholic and that he was raised Catholic and left when he was 18. He went on to share his story of faith and I shared my testimony with him, it was an amazing time. He mentioned that when he wanted to return to the Catholic church when he was younger but couldn’t because he had a divorce as younger man. I still encouraged him to consider returning to the church and would like to be a bit more prepared when the opportunity presents itself again. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle this most sensitive topic. I have heard of many former Catholics that feel they cannot return to the church because of divorce. I think this may be one of the most difficult issues that we face. Thank you and God bless.
