In an interview with Italian TV, German Cardinal Walter Kasper says that inter-communion between Catholics and Protestants is possible for family members, Espresso reports.
Q: A communion at the Eucharistic table as well?
"Yes, shared communion in certain cases, I think so. If [two spouses, one Catholic and one Protestant] share the same Eucharistic faith - this is the presupposition - and if they are interiorly disposed, they can decide in their conscience to receive communion. And this is also the position, I think, of the current Pope, because there is a process of coming together; and a couple, a family, cannot be divided in front of the altar."
