According to Heretic Modernism: The First Condition For Divorced People Living In Adultery To Receive Communion Is That They Are Aware Of Their Sin!; The Second: That “Wanting” to Fulfill God’s Law They Find Themselves Unable To Do It… As If God Asked For Impossible Things

So far, the most "benign" interpretation of the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia in relation to remarried divorcees held that if they were able to receive Communion in certain cases, it was because their objective adultery was not subjective: that is, they did not have "conscience of sin".

This stand was already unsustainable according to Catholic doctrine and common sense, for it is difficult to admit in that point an invincible ignorance that could possibly exempt from sin: especially if, as it is proposed by Amoris Laetitia, the faithful must be "accompanied" (and supposedly instructed) by the priest.

Well, an even worse interpretation has appeared.

And the worst thing is that the proposer is none other than the president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio. And in a booklet published by the Editrice Vaticana Bookstore, the official Vatican editorial! It is titled The Eighth Chapter of the Post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

“The Church could admit to Penance and to the Eucharist faithful who find themselves in an illegitimate union when two essential conditions occur: they want to change the situation, but they are unable to fulfill their desire… This intention is exactly the theological element that allows for absolution and access to the Eucharist, always, we repeat, in the presence of the impossibility of changing immediately the situation of sin.” These are the exact words of the Cardinal.

In the presentation of the pamphlet on February 14, the stand of the cardinal (absent from the act) was synthesized by theologian Maurizio Gronchi, professor of Christology at the Pontifical Urban University: "They have to be aware of being in a state of sin, and the desire to change: these are the conditions indicated [by the cardinal]," said Gronchi, who considers that this “does not contradict the idea of indissolubility, because [the faithful] knows that he is not in conformity with the Gospel." The following day L'Osservatore Romano made their compliments to Coccopalmerio's pamphlet.

Here, then, is a doctrine bordering on delusion: in order to be able to receive Communion... the first condition is to be fully aware of sin! Moreover, the second condition is "not being able" to stop sinning!

Are there, then, cases in which man, knowing that he is in sin, cannot stop sinning? Where then is the power of God? Where is the virtue of hope? What is the notion of this cardinal about good and evil, about grace and free will, about the purpose of amendment as a condition for repentance, about God's plan for men?

Saint Paul said: "God is faithful and will not allow you to be tempted above your strength" (1 Cor 10, 13). Then came Coccopalmerio - if we are to accept his interpretation – and Amoris Laetitia and said otherwise. You choose!

Seeking the Truth in Everything: A Virtue of Exquisite Souls

The revealed truth is believed because we have a motive of infallible credibility: the certainty that God does not lie. But there are other truths.

Seeking the TRUTH in everything is a grace that few get to acquire. It is a quality of wise people (understanding wisdom not as a set of knowledge) very difficult to find today. 

Whoever does not have it can acquire it, but whoever loses it guiltily will hardly recover it and become a slave and believer of their own lies or those of others, particularly when they are close to him by affection or ideology.

Those who seek the truth by starting from a pre-established conclusion that for some reason (whatever it is) they like, and then search for all the prepositions or premises that allow them to reach that pre-established conclusion lie to themselves. Regardless of whether or not these premises are true, everything is good to confirm what they think!

Those who seek the truth sincerely know that it is concluded from certain premises and seeks them with honesty, and knows that we do not start from the conclusion and then look for the premises. On the other hand, those who to deceive close their ears to any premise that contradicts their prefabricated conclusion.

Let's look for the TRUTH in everything. Let us ask God to always have that disposition of spirit so as not to be slaves of our passions and pride. Christ said that those who abide in His Word will know the Truth and will be free. If we earnestly look for the truth in everything, it will make us truly free.
