The Archbishop of Seville maintains the suspension of religious acts on public roads

The Archbishopric of Seville has issued a decree that regulates how the faithful will return to Seville's temples during the different phases of de-escalation. The norms adopted are the same as those issued a few days ago from the Spanish Episcopal Conference, but other recommendations and guidelines are established in the case of Seville that affect, for example, the brotherhoods and brotherhoods.

The Episcopal Council of the Archdiocese of Seville has discussed this Wednesday what that return to normal will be like. After the meeting, the archbishop, Monsignor Asenjo, has issued a statement in which he establishes, regarding the celebration of Corpus Christi, that where it can be celebrated it will have a cloistered character, imparting the blessing with the Blessed Sacrament from the temple courtyard , or one of the doors in the case of the Cathedral.

Monsignor Asenjo maintains the ban on holding processions and other religious actors on public roads while the mobility restrictions imposed by the alarm decree last. It is also recommended, among other measures, that contact with sacred images be avoided.

It is also dispensed to the brotherhoods that cannot carry out their cults, celebrations and acts of piety or devotion due to mobility restrictions, they are dispensed, always with the parish priests or spiritual directors. As for the general councils, elections or other acts, it is necessary to act according to the indications of the episcopal delegate for Legal Affairs for the brotherhoods.

Regarding the return of the faithful to the temples, the capacity limitations of 30% are maintained in the first phase of de-escalation and 50% in the second, keep the doors of the temples open, or the need to use masks and gloves.

In any case, and due to the problems that may be for many faithful, the dispensation for participation in Sunday mass and other holy days is maintained while the capacity restrictions are in force, and it is recommended that the celebrations be followed by the media.

Sacramental dispensations

Monsignor Asenjo has signed another decree in which he approves some sacramental waivers as a result of the "very serious health situation that has been suffered since March in Spain".

The archbishop has waived until December 31, 2020 from the requirement of having received confirmation for those persons who have been chosen as godparents of Baptism in children under 14 years of age. Although, "being committed, for the legality of this dispensation, to continue -or start- the catechetical process of preparation to receive that sacrament as soon as circumstances allow it," reads the decree.

Likewise, those parties who have not received the sacrament of confirmation are exempt until the end of the year, although, as in the previous case, they should continue their catechetical process whenever possible.

Finally, with the current decree, the parish priest is delegated "to instruct the matrimonial file, until August 31, 2020, to dispense with canonical warnings in those cases in which the taking of said acts should have been held without the term established for it ". In the rest of cases, if any other dispensation or license is required for the marriage or the file must be transferred to another diocese, the procedure will be as usual, "requesting it from the episcopal delegate for Sacramental Legal Affairs."
