Cd. Raúl Vela Chiriboga (Aug. 14): "a better pastoral approach to [unrepentant adulterers] does not mean that they will again have the opportunity to return to receiving Communion"

“The Church is the depository of the faith, and that faith is the teaching of Jesus: we can’t go against his commandment,” the emeritus Archbishop of Quito explained Aug. 14 to CNA in Piura, where he was participating in Peru's Tenth National Eucharistic and Marian Congress as an envoy of the Holy Father.

“There are fundamental truths” that will not change even “by more news outlets stirring things up by saying things contrary to, or wanting to misinterpret, what the Lord commands.”

The cardinal recognized there is a need to develop “a better pastoral approach to the faithful, as well as to the faithful who are separated, or who are in other unions.”

“However, this does not mean that they will again have the opportunity to return to receiving Communion, because their situation is irregular.”
