Dear Holy Father: Here’s how you explain Church moral teaching to our children

The pope is soliciting suggestions as to how to hand on Church moral teaching to children, as evidenced by the following quote from a recent address to the Roman Rota, The highest judicial authority in the universal church for dealing with marriage cases.

“ … how can one explain to children that—for example—their mother, abandoned by their father and often not willing to establish another marriage bond, receives the Sunday Eucharist with them, while their father, cohabiting or awaiting the declaration of the nullity of the marriage, cannot participate in the Eucharistic table?”

Simple, Holy Father, you just tell the children it’s up to their father. He can follow Church teaching just like their mother does, and then he can also receive Communion just like their mother does.

The state of the Church is endangered when the highest moral authority is asking how to teach moral doctrine. You’re supposed to know how to do that by the time you get promoted to the top job.
