German bishops deny Pope nixed their plan for intercommunion with Protestants

From Life Site-

The German bishops are denying reports that Pope Francis has rejected their plan to give Holy Communion to Protestant spouses of Catholics.

The plan, which was contained in a guide published by the German Episcopal Conference, justified giving Holy Communion to Protestant spouses of Catholics on the grounds that they might otherwise experience “serious spiritual distress.”

Following a request for a review of the material by seven German bishops, the Austrian Catholic news agency has reported that the Holy See’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has rejected the guide, and that that the decision was confirmed by Pope Francis himself.’s report has been confirmed by the National Catholic Register’s Vatican correspondent Edward Pentin.
