As a priest, religious, or a layperson authorized and encouraged by the Second Vatican Council (see Lumen Gentium, n. 33) to be a living witness and instrument of the mission of the Church, in virtue of the very gifts bestowed upon me and in accordance with the authentic tradition of the Church, I testify and confess to the truths of the Church listed below by the Final Declaration of the Conference Catholic Church, Where Are You Going? held in Rome on April 7, 2018.
May the Magisterium respond to Cardinal Brandmüller’s plea “to pay appropriate attention to this witness of Faith.”
- A ratified and consummated marriage between two baptized persons can be dissolved only by death.
- Therefore, Christians united by a valid marriage who join themselves to another person while their spouse is still alive commit the grave sin of adultery.
- We are convinced that there exist absolute moral commandments which oblige always and without exception.
- We are also convinced that no subjective judgment of conscience can make an intrinsically evil act good and licit.
- We are convinced that judgment about the possibility of administering sacramental absolution is not based on the imputability of the sin committed, but on the penitent’s intention to abandon a way of life that is contrary to the divine commandments.
- We are convinced that persons who are divorced and civilly remarried, and who are unwilling to live in continence, are living in a situation that is objectively contrary to the law of God, and therefore cannot receive Eucharistic Communion.

I pledge to pray at least one rosary per week, through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, named Protector of the Pontiff by Pope Benedict XV, for the intention that the truths listed in paragraphs numbered 1 through 6 be affirmed, supported, obeyed and taught by priests, bishops and the Pope, and all religious and laypeople united in the one, true, holy and apostolic Catholic faith and I petition them to do so.
