"Whoever claims that a new liaison may begin while a lawfully married partner is still alive, is excommunicated, because this is a heresy”, Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, 88, told German Daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (October 28).
Brandmüller explains, “It is a dogma that marriage is a sacrament and therefore indissoluble.” He points out that no adulterer can receive Holy Communion.
The cardinal cannot understand that Francis does not answer the Dubia regarding Amoris Laetitia. He asks: “Can something be good today what was a sin yesterday?” And, “Are there still acts that are always and under all circumstances morally condemnable – as killing an innocent or adultery?” Brandmüller worries about a "schism“ in the Church. en.news
