John Paul II has already spoken on adulterous unions

St. John Paul II has criticized to the ideas of Cardinal Kasper to waive the 2,000-year moral teaching of the Lord and his Church.  He wrote, “The Church reaffirms her practice, which is based on Sacred Scripture, of not admitting to Eucharistic communion divorced persons who have remarried.  They are unable to be admitted thereto from the fact that their state and condition of life objectively contradict that union of love between Christ and the Church which is signified and effected by the Eucharist.  Besides this, there is another special pastoral reason: if these people were admitted to the Eucharist, the faithful would be led into error and confusion regarding the Church’s teaching about the indissolubility of marriage.”

 

He offered additional wisdom for such families and their children.  These couples should, “undertake a way of life that is no longer in contradiction to the indissolubility of marriage.  This means, in practice, that when, for serious reasons, such as for example the children’s upbringing, a man and a woman cannot satisfy the obligation to separate, the take on themselves the duty to live in complete continence, that is, abstinence from acts proper to married couples.”

 

This teaching from one of the most important documents in the Church on the Catholic Family by St. John Paul II demonstrates that the Church seeks to serve, love, and want the best for divorced and remarried couples not yet reconciled with the Church and their children.  Contrary to the recent statement of Pope Francis, the Church does not, “… keep them (the parents) far from the community life (of the church) as if they were excommunicated.”( [1] Full text here)  It is difficult to understand why the Holy Father failed to cite in his recent statement the outstanding, merciful contribution to assist these families from St. John Paul II.

Indeed it is very difficult to understand what Pope Francis is trying to do when Pope St. John Paul II, repeating the Church’s perennial teaching on this matter, has spoken so clearly on it.

Why is this even an issue?  The Church cannot admit or tolerate, in any way, adulterous unions…or in the new Churchspeak, “new unions”.  Failing to call something what it is….is part of the problem here.

One thought on “John Paul II has already spoken on adulterous unions

  1. In Revelation Our Lord says,”I know you cannot tolerate wicked men;you have tested those self-styled apostles who are nothing of the sort,and discovered they are imposters.” This is what wicked men say in regard to the legalization of homosexuality,and this being taught in school to impressionable children by adult teachers and homosexual activists, as so-called secular humanist human rights, “who am i to judge?” Instead of organizing his people in a democracy to politically change this evil. The wicked President of The United States Of America regarding abortion says,” it is above my pay grade,” even though he voted for partial birth abortion and has a 100% rating from the baby killers,Planned Parenthood.These are the kinds of leaders The Religious Democratic Secular Humanist Western Civilization now elects.Christianity is Unconstitutional in Government,Law and Education in our former Christian Democracies starting in 1962,because of the political apathy and indifference of so called Christians.Homosexuals, women and men who have embraced Secular Humanist Sexology have politically united to have their behaviors legalized,so they can recruit your children in schools,as secular humanist human rights.Homosexuals are less than 2% of the population who cannot naturally have children of their own,but they politically united to have their morbid behavior legalized,so they can recruit children in schools,as so-called human rights. The lifestyle which is legal is considered moral.So-called Christians are you more than 2% of the voting public?Praying to our Lord Christ in Democracies and doing nothing politically,is like praying to the Secular Humanists in power to stop perverting your children and grandchildren in schools,as so-called human rights.
