The Synod Fathers noted that Jesus, “in speaking of God’s original plan for man and woman, reaffirmed the indissoluble union between them, even stating that “it was for your hardness of heart that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the be-ginning it was not so” (Mt19:8). The indissolubility of marriage -”what God has put together, let no man put asunder” (Mt 19:6) - should not be viewed as a “yolk” imposed on humanity, but as a “gift” granted to those who are joined in marriage…. God’s indulgent love always accompanies our human journey; through grace, it heals and transforms hardened hearts, leading them back to the beginning through the way of the cross. The Gospels clearly present the example of Jesus who… proclaimed the meaning of marriage as the fullness of revelation that restores God’s original plan.” Pope Francis
