Archdiocese of Vancouver holding the faith on Marriage and the Holy Eucharist
With a thanks to my friend at Momentum Veritatis in Vancouver for bringing to my attention, here is a homily given by Father Pablo Santa Marta in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary in Vancouver and posted on their web page. It follows below.
Can we finally hope that something good is coming out of our Canada?
The Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories, and Archbishop Terence Prendergast, S.J., of Ottawa have all made it quite clear how Amoris Laetitia is to be understood, and it is this; those married civilly after being divorced from a valid Catholic marriage may not receive Holy Communion. If they choose, for the sake of new children, to live together, they must live in total continence, as "brother and sister."
Now, we have this beautiful sermon preached in the Cathedral in Vancouver and hosted on its web page.
There were solid Catholic bishops that led Vancouver and the traditional Mass exists there in diocesan and an FSSP parish. It is not a coincidence.
We will get through this confusion, the LORD will not abandon his people.
