Pope Benedict on Annulments


Zenit gives you the basic elements of his address. One thought from it:

The question of marital annulment arouses much interest, since “for many faithful, the possibility to receive Eucharistic Communion” depends on ecclesiastical decisions, said the Pope.

The Eucharist, yes, but let’s not forget the non-Catholics who often are presented with a choice of full communion or spouse.

And another quote various folks have been hopping all over:

Therefore, it “is extremely important” that the declaration of the ecclesiastical tribunals “take place in a reasonable time,” he noted.

That seems straight-forward enough: get the job done on time.
