Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput says remarried Catholics can receive Communion only if they abstain from sex and live like brothers and sisters.
Chaput issued guidelines earlier this month that said
“Undertaking to live as brother and sister is necessary for the divorced and civilly remarried to receive reconciliation in the Sacrament of Penance, which could then open the way to the Eucharist.”
I thought this would create a stir in my house, as my husband is a remarried Catholic. but when informed of this new rule, he said simply, “OK, sis.”
