If you are divorced but not remarried or co-habiting with anyone, it's OK to receive Holy Communion,. isn't it? The post you link to doesn't clarify this.
shadowlands - if you click on the first link in Terry's post, it'll take you to my blog. I've included a link to Arbp Sheehan's letter, in which he states the following:"Please remember that divorce still is no reason to refrain from Holy Communion as long as they have not entered into another marriage or sinful relationship. Many Catholics are confused on this point."I hope that's helpful!
Thanks Larry for answering Shadowlands.
Thanks Larry, it's not for me ofcourse, I was just enquiring on behalf of a friend (was I heck!).I shall check out your blog forthwith ;)
Shadowlands - Be forewarned - Larry lives with his wife and their 2 legitimate kids.
Father Z has a lot of red worded things to add, I see, on the other link!
Terry said'Shadowlands - Be forewarned - Larry lives with his wife and their 2 legitimate kids.'Huh? Sorry to be dumb Terry, but I don't understand.
I'm just being silly. I was trying to be like Catherine Tate.
That's cool Terry, as you American's say.
shadowlands, I think Terry's meds just wore off. He gets a bit ineffable when that happens.
Larry, don't make excuses for him. I already know, he's one crazy spaced out dude ;)!Hey Terry, btw, I've posted something a bit controversial on my blog, will you give it a glance over. I'm off to bed now, as it's nearly the next day here, so if you comment I won't see it until I wake up.
Just adding a comment so nobody thinks the 3 of you are breaking the shack up rules.Get a room! ... oh wait, no dont. Ugh - Bishops with Backbones ruin all the PUNS... NYUK NYUK! I kill me!
I have a complaint filed with the Apostolic Nuncio concerning Bishop Thomas Olsread's (Phoenix Arizona Diocese) approval of co-habitating couples being Godparents.The complain also alludes to other abuses of the sacraments.Archbishop Sheehan has jurisdiction over the Phoenix Diocese.A Bishop or Priest should not be praised for simply fulfilling his Priestly Ministry. I believe there are many Bishop's pretending to be traditional Catholics simply because they would like to become Cardinals.A Priest is never allowed to approve divorce. The Priest may approve a separation when lives are in danger, but every married couple should always follow the Priest's orders.*
