Retracts for the Times

8759326204_a5069b1711_bFrom the desk of Fr Frederico Lombardi.

It has come to the attention of this office that the Holy  Father is being credited in the press with having agreed that all divorced and remarried couples will be admitted to Holy Communion. This is inaccurate; and even if the Holy Father did say something very similar, he could not possibly have meant it. And even if he meant it, it is not going to happen.

Representatives of the press are advised, before all interviews with His Holiness (and to avoid unnecessary confusion), to contact this office for an authorised text of what the Pope really intends to say, which will henceforward be issued in advance of all public engagements.
