    You remember that German Cardinal who wants to give divorced and remarried Catholics communion? Pope Francis chose him to give the opening speech. I wonder what kind of message that's meant to send?

    I think it just sends the message he has always sent. He is open to listening.

    I wouldn't oppose allowing divorced and remarried Catholics to receive. And if they don't go that far, wouldn't bother me either. Just think its interesting that this cardinal isn't being censured, rather he's being given a chance to convince the other cardinals of his position.

    Haven't seen a Fr. James Martin, SJ post on this yet....

    I find his insights so valuable.

    I think that is what this meeting is about among other things. I don't think the Church will do away with annulment. The divorced can receive. It just those that do not bother to get their second marriage recognized by the Church that cannot receive.
