Pope's book shows desire to draw re-married persons to Christ




A recently translated book by Pope Francis exhibits a call for Catholics who have been divorced and are re-married to be made welcome in parishes, in the hope that they can remedy their situations.

“Catholic Doctrine reminds its divorced members who have remarried that they are not excommunicated – even though they live in a situation on the margin of what indissolubility of marriage and the sacrament of marriage require of them – and they are asked to integrate into the parish life,” he says in his newly translated book, “On Heaven and Earth.” Read the entire story.
