Just Catholic: You don’t have to speak Italian to understand the Vatican's recent "Women's Cultures" events, but it could help. (It was all in Italian.)
Just Catholic: The New York Times paints a cold, hard picture of the church. But the church can fairly easily end a marriage for substantial or administrative reasons.
