Vatican Declares Blessings for Same-Sex Unions ‘Illicit’

The Vatican announced on Monday that blessings for unions of same-sex people are “illicit” because God “cannot bless sin,” while blessings for individual persons with homosexual inclinations are permissible.

    교황청 정통부 '신앙을 위한 교리회'는 지난 3월 15일 가톨릭 교회가 동성 결합에 축복을 줄 수 있는 힘을 갖고 있느냐는 질문에 '부정적'이라는 공식 답변을 내놨다.

 

프란치스코 교황은 이 반응에 동의했다.

 

 

성명은 "동성 간 결합의 경우처럼 결혼 외(즉, 남녀의 불가해한 결합 그 자체로 삶의 전달을 개방하는 것) 성행위를 수반하는 관계, 혹은 파트너십, 심지어 안정적 관계에도 축복을 주는 것은 타당하지 않다"고 밝혔다.

The Vatican’s orthodoxy office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, issued a formal response of “negative” to a question of whether the Catholic churches have the power to give the blessing to unions of persons of the same sex on March 15.

 

Pope Francis approved this response.

 

“It is not licit to impart a blessing on relationships, or partnerships, even stable, that involve sexual activity outside of marriage (i.e., outside the indissoluble union of a man and a woman open in itself to the transmission of life), as is the case of the unions between persons of the same sex,” the statement said.

 

 

What is blessed should be “objectively and positively ordered to receive and express grace” according to the designs of God, the statement explained.

 

The blessing of homosexual unions cannot be considered licit because “there are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family.”

The statement suggested that it does not preclude the blessings given to individual persons with homosexual inclinations, “God Himself never ceases to bless each of His pilgrim children in this world.”

 

“[God] does not and cannot bless sin: he blesses sinful man,” the statement added.

 

 

The statement said the Christian community and its pastors are called to welcome gay people “with respect and sensitivity.” And the Vatican’s response is not a form of “unjust discrimination,” but rather “a reminder of the truth of the liturgical rite.”

 

Pope Francis has endorsed providing gay couples with legal protections in same-sex unions.
