IRISH TIMES Letter to Editor 10. October 2013:
Sir, – The Archdiocese of Freiburg is to be congratulated for officially issuing inclusive guidelines that would allow divorced and remarried Catholics receive the sacraments of the Catholic Church. (World News, October 9th).
It fits in with the vision of Pope Francis who wants an inclusive church where there is room for all the baptised, no matter what their circumstances. After all, such a vision is but following the example of Jesus of Nazareth who in his lifetime offered the friendship of God to all who were then marginalised by religion and state.
