Can a divorced person receive the eucharist? What a priest said in his response to this question, "The complexities of receiving Communion for the divorced."


Simply being divorced doesn’t create a problem when it come to the eucharist, he explains; then he speaks at length about being remarried not in a Catholic ceremony, or not with the permission of the Church.


Hi Have recently been through this myself Once separated gave up receiving communion as it is not acceptable the received as the bible teaches us. I received a ailment and have been the reconciliation. As part of my reconciliation I was asked to read Matthew chapter 5 I recommend this read. So now that I have none the above I am able to receive again.
