Divorced person barred from the sacraments!?


#1

Hi! Are persons just divorced, ie not remarried or not living with anyone else, barred from the sacraments?


#2

AFAIK, if they are properly disposed (fast, state of grace, etc.), no.


#3

Not if they’re in a state of grace and not if it’s reconciliation.

Thank you all for clarifying this for me! :thumbsup: God bless!

Anixx,
I went through this about three years ago. If you are in a state of Grace, then you may partake of the Sacraments. Was your previous marriage annulled or not? Was it a valid Church blessed marriage? Either way, if you are not living as man and wife with someone or otherwise living in sin, you’re ok.
