“For your hardness of heart” (Mk 10:5)

As an educational institution deeply rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church, we at St. Paul University Quezon City firmly uphold the sanctity and indissolubility of marriage. We believe that marriage is a sacred bond, divinely instituted, and a lasting covenant.

We are deeply concerned about the proposed divorce bill filed in the Philippine Congress, and the increasing prevalence of divorce mentality in our society. We view divorce not only as a grave offense against the sacrament of matrimony and God but also as a societal issue that negatively affects personal and social morality.

We urge society and the government to consider the multi-faceted impacts of divorce and to work towards preserving the integrity of the family and marriage. We advocate for stronger marriages, healthier families, and a society that respects and upholds the sanctity of marriage.

“To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband . . . and that the husband should not divorce his wife.”(1 Cor 7:10)

While we do not deny the challenges and trauma experienced by those in strained  marriages, there are already interventions  available for them, and those who are given charge to take care of those who cannot protect themselves must exert all morally permissible efforts to ensure their just and dignified wellbeing.  We believe in the power of reconciliation and in the Church’s teachings on mercy and forgiveness. We encourage couples facing marital difficulties to seek guidance and support. We also call upon society to provide resources and support for families in crisis.

And Jesus replied: “For your hardness of heart that Moses wrote you this commandment. But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one.’ So they are no longer two but one. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. . . Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”(Mk 10: 5-9; 12)

We stand firmly against divorce and will continue to advocate for the sanctity of marriage, the well-being of families, and the health of our society.  Let not the hardness of our hearts dictate the policy and laws that can make hard a married life that is already burdened.  Let not the hardness of our hearts deny the struggles of the victims of degrading marriages either. Rather, we pray and say:  “Create in me a pure heart, O God,   and renew a steadfast spirit within me. . . Then I will teach transgressors your ways,    so that sinners will turn back to you” (Ps 51: 10, 13).

SPUQC’s Official Statement on the Proposed Divorce Bill
