Abstract [en]

Cardinal Walter Kasper has presented a proposal according to which divorced and remarried Catholics may receive Eucharistic Communion, provided that they satisfy certain conditions. He argues that his proposal is merely pastoral, and that it has no implications for the Catholic doctrine of marriage. This article demonstrates that Kasper's proposal in fact entails a significant revision of the  doctrine of marriage by changing the meaning of the marriage commitment.
