Are Children “Legitimate” If Parents Get an Annulment?

A listener named Sherri asks Father Dave, “What happens to children if parents get an annulment?” Father Dave explains that an annulment declares that not all of the elements considered for a valid Sacrament were in place. He also tells Sherri that illegitimate means unlawful, and it is usually a term used in civil society. The Church does not insist that we act like the children don’t exist. The Church still views the children as children of God. Original Air 1-29-18
