Who are we?
In view of the Ordinary Synod on the family held in October 2015 in Rome, a group of concerned lay Catholic leaders and pro-family organisations gathered to address a filial appeal to Pope Francis asking him to reaffirm categorically the Catholic teaching that divorced and civilly "remarried" Catholics cannot receive Holy Communion and that homosexual unions are contrary to Divine and natural law.
The document was supported by 879,451 signatories, among which are 8 cardinals and 203 archbishops and bishops of the five continents.
The subsequent promulgation by the Holy See of the Post-Synodal Exhortation Amoris laetitia did not dispel the confusion spread amongst the faithful because its wording allowed the possibility of being interpreted as a "case by case" authorisation for the reception of sacramental absolution and the Eucharist by people living objective adulterous or pre-marital unions.
In face of what appears to be a rupture with the traditional teachings of the Church regarding the sacraments of Matrimony, Reconciliation and the Eucharist, and to Her timeless and enduring discipline regarding those sacraments, the same group of concerned Catholic decided to promote a solemn Declaration of Fidelity to the Church’s Unchangeable Teaching on Marriage and to Her Uninterrupted Discipline.
Indeed, only the clarity of truth will set people free (John 8: 32) and enable them to find the true joy of love, by living a life in accordance with the wise and saving will of God, in other words, avoiding sin, as maternally requested by Our Lady in Fatima in 1917.
