Bergoglio is allowing sacrilegious communion for adulterers to the Sicilian bishops.





en.news On June 4, the Sicilian Bishops’ Conference promulgated pastoral guidelines on Amoris Laetitia that allow adulterers to receive Holy Communion, against the words of the New Testament. The guidelines admit, that John Paul II required from divorced and remarried to practice chastity, but claim, that this teaching is now “expanded” (meaning: abolished) by Francis.

According to the guidelines adulterers can be absolved and admitted to the Eucharist “even though the confessor knows that it is an objective disorder for the Church”.

According to Catholic teaching it is a mortal sin to receive Holy Communion without being in the state of grace.



Council of Trent

  • Whoever publicly asserts that one may receive communion in mortal sin is excommunicated

    If anyone says that faith alone is sufficient preparation for receiving the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist: let him be anathema. And that so great a Sacrament may not be unworthily received, and therefore unto death and condemnation, this holy Council ordains and declares that sacramental confession must necessarily be made beforehand by those whose conscience is burdened by mortal sin, however contrite they may consider themselves. If anyone moreover teaches the contrary or preaches or obstinately asserts, or even publicly by disputation shall presume to defend the contrary, by that fact itself he is excommunicated.

  • No one conscious of mortal sin should approach the Holy Eucharist, however contrite he may seem to himself

Now ecclesiastical usage declares that this examination is necessary, that no one conscious of mortal sin, however contrite he may seem to himself, should approach the Holy Eucharist without a previous sacramental confession. This, the holy Synod has decreed, is always to be observed by all Christians, even by those priests on whom by their office it may be incumbent to celebrate, provided the recourses of a confessor be not lacking to them. But if in an urgent necessity a priest should celebrate without previous confession, let him confess as soon as possible [see n. 1138 ff.]. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1647. Council of Trent, Session XIII, October 11, 1551)

Code of Canon Law– Marriage can only be dissolved by death

Pope Pius IX– Any other union among Christians except the sacramental union is nothing else than a disgraceful concubinage.



Saint Thomas Aquinas

  • Adultery and fornication destroy the soul


Adultery and fornication are forbidden for a number of reasons. First of all, because they destroy the soul: ‘He who is an adulterer has no sense, for the folly of his heart shall destroy his own soul’ (Prov 6:32). It says: ‘for the folly of his heart,’ which is whenever the flesh dominates the spirit. (Saint Thomas Aquinas. The Ten Commandments, Article 8)
