Despite the public longing of progressives and the press turned rumor for a change to the prohibition on divorced and remarried people receiving communion, the rumor is false.
A Vatican dicastery has taken the unusual step of issuing a public denial that it is preparing a document on the reception of Communion by divorced and remarried Catholics.I know that this is a tough situation, but a change to this would not make sense. Being 'pastoral' to those in these situations should never mean turning a blind eye to sin.
The Pontifical Council for the Family issued an announcement on April 25 that "there is no basis to the news, circulated by some press agencies, that a document on distributing communion to remarried divorced persons is being prepared." Some reports, citing anonymous Vatican sources, had claimed that a document on that topic would soon be released.
