Xavier Novell, ex-bishop of Solsona, is married by the Church to the writer Sílvia Caballol

Xavier Novell, the former bishop of Solsona, about whom rivers of ink were written after resigning from the diocese to marry the erotic novel writer Sílvia Caballol when she was pregnant, got married this Sunday in the Church, as the bride revealed through from your Instagam account.

The couple had already married civilly in 2021 and are parents of two twin girls. Now they have been able to do it for the Church thanks to a dispensation from Pope Francis, who has granted secularization.

"I thought it was honest, after so long that you have been with us, not to hide that Xavier and I were finally able to get married in the Church, thanks to the mercy of the Holy Father, who granted him secularization," explains Caballol.

In the publication, the bride shares various images of the couple officiating and their religious wedding. "It has been a long road, but we have been able to regulate our canonical situation: get married as we wanted and be able to receive communion again. He is still a bishop, but unable to carry out the ministry," details the newlywed.

"I don't think the cover-up that accompanied my husband's resignation two and a half years ago was entirely right. I'm sorry for everyone who thinks it would have been better to keep the secret, but I can't continue to act like I don't think or feel "concludes Caballol, mother of five children, the three oldest being the result of a previous relationship.
