DBK-Chairman: Church is bound up in this question to the word of Jesus. Sacramental recognition of the second relationship after failure of the first is "excluded". But there are "Other forms of recognition" to be considered.
Frankfurt (kath.net/KNA) The chairman of the German Bishops' Conference, Cardinal Reinhard Marx (photo), has reaffirmed the Catholic understanding of the indissolubility of marriage. The Church is bound up in this question to the word of Jesus, said the Archbishop of Munich and Freising, "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" (Friday). At the same time,malif Marx admitted that the church had to face the fact that marriages fail and break up families.
"We need to overcome silence in the face of failure," Marx said. So the question arises, what does the Church have to say about a second relationship, which also could have its "own moral quality". A sacramental recognition is, however, in the words of the Cardinal "excluded". But probably there are "other forms of recognition" which have not yet been considered sufficient, says Marx. Further details were not mentioned by the Cardinal.
He did not anticipate the Synod of Bishops being convened by Pope Francis on matters of marriage and family.
In the fall, the bishops will meet in the Vatican, to discuss these issues. A second meeting is planned in the coming year.
Individual theologians refer to overlooking the handling remarried divorcees considering the practice of the Eastern Churches, in which, although no second marriage is consummated, the second relationship can blessed as a community of responsibility. Another question in this context is the admission to the sacraments. Under current understanding, the divorced and remarried are excluded from receiving communion.
