“[T]he Catholic doctrine of the indissolubility of marriage is a great *celebration of the power of freedom*, and moreover of the *ordinary* power of freedom, as it involves everybody. It follows that every attempt to weaken that doctrine in order to ‘speak humanly,’ amounts to a lessening of human dignity. Through its intransigent permanence, the indissolubility of marriage even rises above vows of religion.”
