Holy Communion or re-marry?


Would the Catholic church prefer living in sin after a divorce in order to receive Hoy Communion or re marry and denied this? Divorce is often the only resolution to marriages especially if the relationship has been violent yet the very Christians who need and want to receive Communion are denied this through the Catholic church if they find happiness in their lives and re-marry?

    I see more and more how inflexible church doctrine is in its interptetation of scripture and the New Testament. It often does more damage than good for Christian faith.

    Li Galo. Thankyou for your comments. It seems to me as though the Catholic church has somehow along the line 'lost the plot'a little as it appears so far removed now from the true teachings of the Gospels. Thankyou

    Yes every faith has their own beliefs but how sad must it be if you've been raised and have followed particular teachings to suddenly feel abandoned by them. Thankyou for your comments.

    It is an awful situation for many I agree itakins.This is especially tough when people are searching for support at difficult times in their lives from their church yet feel they're being turned away.
