Can divorced Catholics receive Communion?

The issue of divorce can be a source of confusion and pain for many Catholics

By Father Cal Christiansen

Q: My husband and I recently divorced after 23 years of marriage. After being married in the Catholic Church our relationship started out strong, but as the years went by we became estranged and lived as strangers in the same house. We decided to divorce each other last year. I heard that the church teaches that divorced Catholics should not receive Communion. Is this true?
