Diocese Of Rome Lures Adulterers Into Mortal Sin And Sacrilege

LifeSite News reports that Cardinal Agostino Vallini, Vicar General of the Diocese of Rome, has released guidelines based on Amoralis Lamentia that lure adulterers into greater mortal sin by receiving Holy Communion while carrying on in that state.  Cardinal Villini is merely the Vicar General of that diocese.  The Chief Shepherd of that diocese is none other than Pope Francis himself.

These directives fly in the face of the Teachings of the Church.  They most certainly contradict Humanae Vitae, Familiaris Consortio and others.  Supposedly this is to be allowed for limited cases and only when the adulterers are consulting with a confessor.  But think about this for a minute.  If these adulterers are conferring with a confessor, is not that confessor explaining to them the gravity of both adultery and receiving Holy Communion while in that state?  Therefore the adulterers should know that their sins are grave.  The confessor is supplying them with knowledge of the Church's teaching.  If they continue their sin, they are thus doing so in full knowledge of the sin and in deliberate disobedience to the Church.  Therefore we see: 1) grave matter, 2) full knowledge 3) deliberate consent.  The educated Catholic will know that these three conditions determine mortal sin.  It only takes one mortal sin for a soul to be damned to hell if he/she doesn't rectify the matter within the Sacrament of Confession.  If adulterers receive Holy Communion while in a state of mortal sin, they commit yet another mortal sin, that of sacrilege against Holy Communion.  No Amoralis-Lamentia-based double-talk will erase that reality.

Now in order for a valid Confession to occur, the penitent must have the firm purpose of amending their sinful ways.  That means they must actually quit the sin, not merely give lip service to it.  If they approach the Confessional while having no intention of correcting their fault, they commit a sacrilege against the Sacrament of Confession.

Again, this is the Diocese of Rome.  Does anyone really believe that this guideline, which is in reality an outright temptation to mortal sin, would ever have been promulgated without the permission - if not instigation - of its bishop Pope Francis?  We see more seduction to mortal sin coming from Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts.  This is the Vatican office charged with interpreting Church law.  He stated that adulterers who "want to change their situation but cannot" can receive Holy Communion.  He gave an example of a woman shacking up with a man and his children.  He states that she may be unable to leave lest she neglect her duties to the children.  But what "duties" are discharged by flaunting adultery before the children's eyes?  See this post from Toronto Catholic Witness for some analysis of Coccopalmerio's heresy.

We also see the following developments:
These developments seem to be the attempts to silence those clergy who hold fast to Christ's words to us through Tradition.  I suspect we'll see more such persecutions and more blatant moral heresies.  Pray that either the dubia are answered or that the four cardinals take their next steps with all alacrity.
