波蘭天主教首訂離教指引

波蘭主教團推出指引 處理申請離開教會個案

波蘭天主教主教團推出指引,處理要求申請離開教會的個案。主教團的廿二點的指引說,教會為信徒背離感到傷痛,並熱切接受他們重投教會。指引稱,有意離教的人應在所屬堂區神父和兩名成人見證下,「由衷和坦白地」提出書面意願,神父亦應解釋有關後果,包括當事人不能再領受婚配等聖事,以及接受「個人、牧靈輔導」。(合一新聞)

Polish Bishops Outline How to Leave Church

If a Catholic in Poland wants to leave the Church, the country's bishops won't be standing in the in the way.

Poland's episcopal conference has released a 22-point document to guide Catholics who want to renounce their baptism and leave the Church, reports Ecumenical News International.

The bishops affirmed that leaving the Church is an offense against God, and that it is “pained by every sin” of separation: “Persons in peril of committing such a deed should be instructed and encouraged in love to abandon their intention of leaving the church.”

“But their natural right to decide their path in life should also be upheld,” the bishops added.

According to the guidelines, those wishing to leave the Church should submit a written statement to their parish priest, in the presence of two witnesses. The act bars the individual from the sacraments, including a Christian burial.

The bishops suggest time be given to reconsider, and underline that an individual's name will not be removed from parish records.
