Bishop Ángel José Macín of Reconquista, Argentina, presided last Sunday a Eucharist in the parish San Roque, Reconquista, during which he re-admitted around thirty couples of civilly remarried divorcees into “full sacramental communion” with the Church, writes adelantelafe.com. The adulterers previously met during six month on Saturdays in what was called a “camino de discernimiento” (“Path of Discernment”).

Macín justified his move with Pope Francis’ letter to the Buenos Aires bishops, in which he said in September 2016, that there was “no other interpretation” of Amoris Laetitia than to allow adulterers to receive communion.

At the end of the Eucharist Macín distributed communion to the adulterers, while relatives took pictures. No reference was made to the biblical teaching on divorce and receiving Communion.

Pope Francis named Macín a bishop in October 2013.
