Pope Francis tells adulterer she should be allowed Communion
Francis reportedly told her: “A divorcee who takes communion is not doing anything wrong.”
The surprising exchange was recounted by Mrs Sabetta’s husband, Julio Sabetta, who wrote about it on his Facebook page.
The phone call from the Pope reportedly came six months after the woman wrote to him. Introducing himself as “Father Bergoglio” – a reference to his given name, Jorge Mario Bergoglio – the South American pontiff said he was sorry it had taken him so long to make the call.
When asked whether the remarks attributed to the Pope were correct, a Vatican spokesman told The Telegraph: "We would neither confirm or deny that - this was a private telephone call made by the Holy Father and we would not divulge the details."
