Your Holiness, you speak of reconciliation with those Catholics who by means of divorce are unable to participate in Communion. Then let this present Pope be innovative to the whole of the Church by opening the Churches arms to those who carry the burden of divorce by inviting them back in a Mass of Reconciliation not unlike that which Almighty God performed with the Nation Israel after writing them a Bill of Divorcement. “For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall he be called. For the Lord has called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. For a moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee saith the Lord thy Redeemer.” Isaiah 54: 5-7
Why not extend a warm welcome to those millions of Catholics that live outside the gate and bring them home. Why not offer the kind of forgiveness demonstrated by the Father and his Son and make a way for those hurt by traditional Catholic statute a means of rejoining the Church in its fullness. This could be accomplished by celebrating a healing Mass that does contain a proviso of coming reestablishment of full Communal rights. Can you as the Head of the Church do less than your Master and Lord who with tender mercies regathered his own rebellious and adulterous Israel?
Can not the Saint wearing Papal White confer with those wrapped in Cardinal Red and bring this long lasting and hurtful issue to rest? Humble thyself before the Lord and let he who is forgiveness lead you in this matter.
