Stephan Burger, the Archbishop of Freiburg, expects a document of the German Bishops concerning marriage and the family and concerning the Church’s dealing with the remarried divorcees. The Bishops’ Conference has seen it as its task to pick up on Pope Francis’ recent explanations and to make them more concrete, said Burger to the Diocesan newspaper Konradsblatt in Karlsruhe. More importantly, Burger says that Pope Francis himself wants to allow Communion for the “remarried,” as Katholisch.de also reports:
An essential point of the papal document concerning marriage and the family (Amoris Laetitia) is, in the eyes of Burger, that Francis himself wants to make free the path for the remarried to receive Holy Communion. This is, in individual cases, possible after an ‘in-depth examination and formation of conscience and after a pastoral accompaniment.’
The Archbishop stressed that ‘life is too complicated in order to have at hand a clear and unequivocal solution for everybody and everything.’
We will not leave the Holy Catholic Church, the true Faith. We will denounce any Pope, any Bishop, any priest, we will do it publically, we will denounce them, we will renounce them.
We will not renounce Christ and His Truth.
