Postscript: Divorce and Cohabitation — a Brief Synopsis

  • Maurice Larkin

Ill-feeling between Rome and Paris, and ill-feeling between Catholic liberals and intransigents, each of whom accused the other of betrayal. The liberals blamed the intransigents for the financial difficulties of the Church, while the intransigents accused the liberals of wanting to sell ‘the divine constitution of the Church, bought with the blood of Christ’ for ‘the miserable material advantages of the law of Separation’.1
