Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What Is Happening and How You Can Help
Divorce. Remarriage. Communion?
“Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery” (Mark 10:11-12).
So said Jesus Christ. Yet today, the question of divorce and remarriage is more controversial than ever.
Some in the Catholic Church are proposing that those who have divorced and remarried without an annulment should be given Holy Communion.
The issue is so controversial that even cardinals have been debating the subject in the media.
That’s why Catholic Answers has produced Divorce, Remarriage, Communion: A Guide to What Is Happening and How You Can Help.
It will give you an understanding of this issue, what has been happening, and how you can support the bishops of the Church as they wrestle with this controversial subject.
"The civil authority has been, ever from the days of Herod, the enemy of Christ. The question, now pending, is whether the Church shall admit to ministry those only who, according to the dictation of the civil power, are fit for the office."
~ Bishop Hogan of Kansas City MO, excerpted from an address to parishoners after his arrest under the provisions of the Missouri Test Oath (which was subsequently struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court by just one vote)
