I would also point out that the Eucharist 'is not a prize for the perfect, but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak ' " Footnote The closing chapter is devoted to marital and family spirituality.
Remembering Cardinal Carlo Martini Martini, SJ - First Anniverary of Death
Persons called to family life are reassured that this context does not detract from their spiritual growth or potential, and says that this vocation should be seen as their own path to mystical union. He closes by emphasizing the necessity of mercy within the family, explaining that all are called to grow, develop, and mature, helping one another in spite of weaknesses and limitations.
But Pope Francis wishes to present an overall picture, not focus on this unique point". He said that "many expected a rule" to clarify which of the positions outlined at the synod the Pope supported, and that "they will be disappointed. He said his own experience — his parents divorced when he was about 14 years old — made him thankful that the text "goes beyond the artificial, superficial, clear division between 'regular' and 'irregular', placing everyone under the common lens of the Gospel , in accordance with the words of St.
Naturally this poses the question: Pope Francis reiterates the need to discern carefully the situation in keeping with St. John Paul II's Familiaris consortio. By thinking that everything is black and white, we sometimes close off the way of grace and of growth, and discourage paths of sanctification which give glory to God', But for this purpose he does not offer us case studies or recipes, but instead simply reminds us of two of his famous phrases: Is it an excessive challenge for pastors, for spiritual guides and for communities if the 'discernment of situations is not regulated more precisely?
Pope Francis acknowledges this concern: That is the worst way of watering down the Gospel '. One week following the press conference, a journalist asked Pope Francis, "For a Catholic who wants to know: But it would be an answer that is too small. I recommend that you read the presentation of Cardinal Schonborn, who is a great theologian In that presentation, your question will find an answer.
Bishops in different regions of the world have each implemented their own guidelines concerning the pastoral care of persons living in "irregular" situations in accordance with Chapter 8 of Amoris laetitia. Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth, England , published a letter in the same month that Amoris laetitia was released in which he observed, "What to me is new in Amoris Laetitia is the Pope's application of the traditional distinction between mortal and venial sin to the many messy situations people find themselves in with regards to love, sexuality and relationships.
For a mortal sin to be committed, three conditions are necessary: Some people are in messy situations through no real fault of their own, but through the actions of another. Bearing all this in mind can help pastors and individuals find creative ways forward. Chaput of Philadelphia published guidelines in July that state, "Undertaking to live as brother and sister is necessary for the divorced and civilly-remarried to receive reconciliation in the Sacrament of Penance, which could then open the way to the Eucharist. The bishops of Buenos Aires issued guidelines for priests concerning the implementation of Amoris laetitia in September The Buenos Aires guidelines state, "When the concrete circumstances of a couple make it feasible, especially when both are Christians with a path of faith, the commitment to live in continence can be proposed.
However, a path of discernment is also possible. If it is recognized that, in a specific case, there are limitations that mitigate liability and guilt see - , particularly when a person considers that he would fall on a further fault damaging the children of the new union, Amoris laetitia opens the possibility of access to the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist see notes and There are no other interpretations.
In December , both the Buenos Aires guidelines and Pope Francis' letter of approval were published in the October edition of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis , followed by a statement by Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin that Pope Francis had decreed that both documents be promulgated as authentic magisterium. Such a firm resolution to live in accordance with the teaching of Christ, relying always on the help of his grace, opens to them the possibility of celebrating the sacrament of Penance, which in turn may lead to the reception of Holy Communion at Mass.
In a pastoral letter published in October , Bishop Robert W. McElroy of San Diego writes that there is "a role for the discernment of conscience on the question of participation in the life of the Church and the reception of the Eucharist. Others will conclude that they should wait, or that their return would hurt others.

Concerns around political interference led to reforms after the interregnum of — and Pope Gregory X 's decree during the Second Council of Lyons in that the cardinal electors should be locked in seclusion cum clave Latin for "with a key" and not permitted to leave until a new Bishop of Rome had been elected.
Since the Apostolic Age , the Bishop of Rome, like other bishops, was chosen by the consensus of the clergy and laity of the diocese. The procedures relating to the election of the pope have undergone almost two millennia of development. Procedures similar to the present system were introduced in when Gregory X promulgated Ubi periculum following the action of the magistrates of Viterbo during the interregnum of — The process was further refined by Gregory XV with his bull Aeterni Patris Filius , which established the requirement of a two-thirds majority of cardinal electors to elect a pope.
Aeterni Patris Filius prohibited this practice and established two-thirds as the standard needed for election. As early Christian communities emerged, they elected bishops, chosen by the clergy and laity with the assistance of the bishops of neighbouring dioceses. Cyprian died says that Pope Cornelius in office — was chosen as Bishop of Rome "by the decree of God and of His Church, by the testimony of nearly all the clergy, by the college of aged bishops [ sacerdotum ], and of good men". Instead of casting votes, the bishop was selected by general consensus or by acclamation.
The candidate would then be submitted to the people for their general approval or disapproval. This lack of precision in the election procedures occasionally gave rise to rival popes or antipopes. The right of the laity to reject the person elected was abolished by a Synod held in the Lateran in , but restored to Roman noblemen by Pope Nicholas I during a Synod of Rome in The cardinal bishops were to meet first and discuss the candidates before summoning the cardinal priests and cardinal deacons for the actual vote.
The small electorate magnified the significance of each vote and made it all but impossible to displace familial or political allegiances. Conclaves lasted months and even years. In his decree requiring the electors be locked in seclusion, Gregory X also limited each cardinal elector to two servants and rationed their food progressively when a conclave reached its fourth and ninth days. In Pope Sixtus V limited the number of cardinals to 70, following the precedent of Moses who was assisted by 70 elders in governing the Children of Israel: In Paul VI ruled that cardinals who reach the age of eighty before the start of a conclave are ineligible to participate.
He also changed the age limit slightly, so that cardinals who turn 80 before a papal vacancy not before conclave start can not serve as electors. Originally, lay status did not bar election to the See of Rome. Bishops of dioceses were sometimes elected while still catechumens , such as the case of St. Ambrose ,  who became Bishop of Milan in In the wake of the violent dispute over the election of Antipope Constantine II , Pope Stephen III held the synod of , which decreed that only a cardinal priest or cardinal deacon could be elected, specifically excluding those that are already bishops.
As of [update] , the three most recent conclaves have elected a Pole , a German , and an Argentinian A simple majority vote sufficed until , when the Third Council of the Lateran increased the required majority to two-thirds.
