A Commentary on Chapter Eight of Amoris Laetitia
Author Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio
Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, president ot the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, whose charge it is to interpret official documents issued by the Vatican, offers a welcome perspective on chapter eight of Amoris Laetitia. While it is not a response to objections raised to this document, it is an authoritative reading of an important papal document. While affirming the teaching of the Church on the indissolubility of marriage, it admits the possibility of readmittance to the sacraments on a case-by-case basis, under the guidance of a priest.
