The pope warns that children of divorced couples can become the new orphans

He said that “the majority of those who feel orphaned are not children without parents but children with a surplus of parents.”

The pope made his remarks during a meeting with Brazilian bishops who were in Rome visiting the departments of the Vatican as they do every five years.

Benedict XVI“There are forces and people in society that seem to be dedicated to demolish the family, natural cradle of human life.”

To resolve the issue, he asked families to not be fooled by false life models promoted through films and television. He also encouraged all to know forgiveness, help children that suffer, and introduce love and beauty to the life of others. JMB/RS
