en.news Leiria-Fátima Cardinal Marto, 72, Portugal, "allowed" five cohabitating divorcees to receive Communion “like any Catholic.”
One couple, Rosalia Rodrigues, 39, and Gastão Crespo, 47, went public (CmJornal.pt, February 4). She is an ex-catechist and former distributor of Communion.
When they “remarried” ten years ago, they realised that this was “a state of adultery.” They continued to attend Sunday Mass without receiving Communion, baptised their children, and taught them the Faith.
Only after Fatima Diocese started "programs" for adulterers following Amoris Laetitia, the couple got their first sacrilegious Communion on May 13, 2019.
According to Jn.pt (January 10), more divorcees will follow.
Canon 1141 A marriage which is ratified and consummated cannot be dissolved by any human power or by any cause other than death.
18 “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.
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)
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. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1661. Julius III, Council of Trent, Session XIV, October 11, 1551)
