In 1946, four years after Peninnha's death, Father Divine again legally wed.
Father Divine's marriage to a twenty-one-year-old white Canadian woman, Sweet Angel or the second Mother Divine, was a source of tremendous public criticism in the United States for a religious group which was already a source of national conversation and controversy.
As he had done many times in the past, Father Divine used the public commotion over his interracial, celibate marriage as a way to spread his messages. The marriage, he said, was the ultimate example of God's approval of racial integration, of international peace and the "life of Christ". Mother Divine was the embodiment of the conviction: "I know You Are God" and by marrying one of his followers, he married his whole Church.
