The Synod of the family has discussed the issue of the divorced and re-married couples and has upheld the doctrine of the indissolubility of marriage. No surprises.
On Thursday, Bishops started discussing the issue of divorced and re-married couples. Specifically whether they should be allowed to receive Communion.
Bishops agreed that marriage within the Church is indissoluble. They’re discussing what to do when a marriage cannot be annulled and also how to move forward with annulments in cases that are indeed eligible.
