A call to embrace the divorced
Pope Francis has developed a reputation for shaking things up. The pontiff continued to do so with a recent statement to those gathered for his weekly Vatican audience. He said the Church should embrace Catholics who divorce and remarry.
He made special mention of embracing the children of divorced Catholics, saying “we must not add more weight to what children in these situations already have to bear.” A more accepting Church might well be of great spiritual comfort to a number of Catholics who have left failed marriages and those who are considering a divorce.
The Pope was emphatic about accepting divorced and remarried followers, saying “No closed doors!” He added that divorced Catholics are not excommunicated and should not be treated as if they were, CNN reported.
