Cardinal Scola: Communion for the remarried contradicts Church teaching

The cardinal said that breaking with the doctrine would contradict the nature of marriage

Cardinal Angelo Scola, a prominent cardinal who in 2013 was the bookies’ favourite to become Pope, has re-entered the controversy over Communion for the remarried.

In a new book-length interview, the former Archbishop of Milan defends the Church’s traditional teaching, namely that the divorced and remarried cannot receive Communion unless they resolve to live “in complete continence”.


He’s right.

Gotta love those bookies. They’re always going to pick the Italians.
