On October 27, at a press conference in Poland, given by His Grace, Stanislaw Gadecki, President of the Polish Episcopal Conference, the following should be noted:
The main agitating force for Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried are German Cardinals and bishops.
"It is certain that the German Cardinals are the driving engine. For twenty years, Cardinal Kasper has raised this issue. Cardinal Marx has also attached himself to this. Two thirds of the German episcopate are on their side".
According to the Archbishop, when the vote was taken at the synod, the Germans were joined by the South Americans.
He added the Pope "avoided taking a position on either the old or new solution, he just express trust that the Holy Spirit will not leave the Church".
