CDF and Pope Reject German Bishop’s Conference Handout Allowing Some Protestants to Receive Communion

1Peter5, Maike Hickson: As the Austrian Catholic news website reports today, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – with explicit approval of Pope Francis – rejected the 22 February 2018 handout concerning the admittance, in individual cases, of Protestant spouses of Catholics to Holy Communion as it had been approved by the German Bishops’ Conference under the leadership of Cardinal Reinhard Marx. We have confirmed their report with our own sources close to the Vatican. More here.
