I started to write a post lamenting the many threads on these boards that seem to want to attack the Marriage Tribunal System over the number of decrees of nullity issued. Unfortunately, I found myself becoming more upset the more I typed....So I erased it all and decided to just start something simple....(I hope)....
This thread is designed to allow anyone who cares to, to voice their support and/or appreciation for the difficult work done by the members of the Marriage Tribunal system in the Church.
Those of us who have been blessed to be able to return to the Sacraments due to the diligent work of these people can likewise express that thanks here and I will start.
My Dear Lady, who is dying, has received the sacraments - thanks in part to my being able to receive an annulment.
Those who work in the Tribunal offices are hardworking, diligent people. They care a great deal but have the unfortunate task of "cleaning up" after many years of poor catechesis.
In my opinion the great benefit that we should be deriving from the Tribunal system is the great need for better Catechesis, beefed up "Pre-Cana", and other ministries aimed at preventing things from getting to the point of needing a decree at all.
So - how about it...Let us hear it for these wonderful people from those who they serve....
