Virginity is no longer a prerequisite for initiation.
The Pope has allowed the “bride of Christ” does not keep her virginity. New rules published on the official website of the Vatican.
– A call to take an oath in virginal, spousal, and fruitful love of Christ is not confined to the physical symbol of innocence. Thus, the preservation of her body in perfect integrity or the practice of virtue, the exemplary chastity, though of great importance, by definition, but not an essential condition, without which the dedication was impossible, – said in the text.
Thanks to the new rules, to undergo the rite of initiation for the service of God can women who have had a sexual relationship with a man and the widow.

Some girls put on a real wedding ceremony with a white dress, cake and guests. “Bride of Christ” wearing a wedding ring as a symbol of their vows. Earlier, virginity was a prerequisite for the initiation of the “bride of Christ”, although no tests to verify this were not carried out.
