In the latest in a series of Letters from the Synod, "Xavier Rynne" calls attention to a passage of the instrumentum laboris, or working document, that open the way for allowing Protestants to receive Communion in the Catholic Church.

Paragraph #128 of the instrumentum laboris has not received much attention, "Rynne" remarks. But that paragraph could be read as a justification for allowing the reception of Communion by a Protestant who is married to a Catholic. The passage suggests that it could be deemed a case of "grave necessity" if baptized Christians are married to Catholics and "their own pastors are not available." That language could be interpretted liberally to apply to many Protestants who are married to Catholics.

Mea culpa.  :)
Part of me has to wonder, what do a large group of geriatric celibates who have never had a relationship much less a marriage have to say to laymen who are in relationships or married? It seems as absurd as a large group of laymen holding a synod about how to solve the crisis in the priesthood. Seriously though, this whole thing is like a bad Monty Python skit it's so farcical.

I've wondered much the same at times!  But, maybe you assume too much.  Maybe these geriatrics haven't always been so celibate and maybe they [i]have[/i] been in relationships, if not actually married.  And maybe I should quit while I'm still ahead... :grin:  (How's that for cynical and doubting, eh?)

Yes, like that celibate creep St. Paul!

Seriously, ad hominem much?
