“The verbal, physical, and sexual violence that women endure in some marriages contradicts the very nature of the conjugal union” (AL, 54). “Good pastoral training is important especially in light of particular emergency situations arising from cases of domestic violence and sexual abuse” (AL, 204). This panel discusses the important of speaking out about domestic violence as well as the need for the Church to provide appropriate pastoral support for people who have been subjected to violence in family life.
