About the ‘filial correction’ – 2

Those who approach the Body and Blood of Christ may not wound that same Body by creating scandalous distinctions and divisions among its members. This is what it means to “discern” the Body of the Lord, to acknowledge it with faith and charity, both in the sacramental signs and in the community; those who fail to do so eat and drink judgment upon themselves (Pope Francis, 2016, Amoris Laetitia, #186, p. 142).

It is sadly ironic that the Correctio Filialis signatories have fallen precisely into that which they have taken it upon themselves of accusing the divorced-and-remarried of doing, with regard to the discipline laid out in the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
