Mantua Bishop Marco Busca, 53, Italy, has publicly claimed that he can fix adultery without requiring from the adulterers to change their lives. In a November 30 pastoral letter he claimed:
"From today, those faithful who are divorced and remarried, or who, howsoever, live in a second, stable relationship, can undertake an ecclesial path of reconciliation, which, in some cases, may lead to the possibility of having again access to the sacrament of penance and to Eucharistic communion. The indications of the diocese for this journey are contained in a small document that is already available in all the parishes."
With this announcement, Busca put himself above the Gospel and the Catholic Church. He openly promotes perseverance in mortal sin, and thus has outed himself as a heretic.
