Divine Law is truthful and just and charitable, all at once, by definition. And it is divine law that people who do not discern the Body and Blood of the Lord are not to receive Holy Communion (see below). But people don’t get that. Sending people to hell with a complacent conscience is uncharitable. Let’s be specific: that objectively monstrous people like Joey Biden who effectively picks his teeth with the ribs of aborted babies while he comes up to receive Holy Communion is just plain wrong, and it’s gotta stop. I don’t care what the bishops have to say about it, it’s divine law:
- 1 Corinthians 11:27 — “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.”
And then there’s this:
- “But Father George! Father George! You’re hurting Joey’s feelings on purpose! We know! You’re an old meanie! The most important thing, like, ever, is feelings, not eternal life or eternal death, heaven or hell, but feelings! And you are hurting feelings! Bad! Bad! BAD!”
Well, the Holy Spirit inspired those words of Saint Paul. If I needed a reprimand to get myself on to heaven I hope people would give it to me even if it hurt my feelings. But judging that I’m uncharitable for not judging the subjective state of someone, but rather their objective state from what they themselves obstinately and publicly and scandalously present most contentiously is a little bit weird. It’s a great charity to help someone turn to the Lord who needs to do that.
I’m not saying that Pope Francis said what Joey Biden said Pope Francis said about Joey being a good Catholic and that Joey should continue to go to Holy Communion. After all, Joey Biden spoke without a teleprompters. But Joey said what he said, and it’s out there, and it’s putting enormous pressure on the bishops in these USA to just throw 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 right out the wide open windows while the smoke of Satan enters in.
The effect is the same if Francis says nothing to correct what Joey said. But, truth be told, Pope Francis already declared himself on the matter in the recent plane trip when he condemned abortion then instantly allowed “pastoral” decisions of pastors to allow pro-abort politicians to receive Holy Communion, calling any denial of Holy Communion to such monsters mere ideological politics. In other words, abortion doesn’t matter. Joey Biden’s soul doesn’t matter. It’s all mere politics and ideology. Don’t expect Pope Francis to be making any correction. Joey Biden said exactly what Pope Francis wanted him to say regardless of whether or not Pope Francis said it.
I suggest that Pope Francis ought not say that 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 is – even though inspired by the Holy Spirit – the mere rubbish of rigid ideological politics as he effectively said in the plane interview. True, it will be said with their own false judgment that these verses are not written for our salvation and therefore in their own minds are not inspired. (They’re wrong on that: it’s all inspired, all for our salvation.) Or they’ll say that we’re all more clever today anyway, so it doesn’t matter. after all, we’re all infallible.
At any rate, I’m lucky to have such a small parish. Our parking lot couldn’t fit all the vehicles in Joey Biden’s entourage. Our little church could hardly fit in those of his entourage. But there’s plenty of room in the penitent side of the Confessional for him alone. And I’m still a Missionary of Mercy. About whatever undeclared excommunication he would have picked up I can absolve.
When Joey converts, we need him to go back to the Vatican and reprimand Pope Francis for not reprimanding him.

YES, yes, yes! Honest reprimands have changed me for the better. Good one. I reckon our politically correctness has covered us up…and that’s it – we care more about what man says than what God desires.
If Joe Biden is a good Catholic, then, Pelosi should be considered for sainthood. All just polite conversations, photo-ops, and finger sandwiches. A person’s divine soul isn’t a “nicety” Satan lives! Alive and well in Jorge Bergoglio. The Bishops must wake up, stand up and speak up loudly. For me, my husband hears “what the hell is happening?” everyday as I read more incredulous crap. All the “Good Catholics” will hear the words “I never knew you” on judgment day. I want to go to heaven, I will never concede to this wave of evil in the Church. Okay, will sign off. I go into a rant. I just know whats happening isn’t “good.”
Well we don’t know for sure about “in Jorge”, but, like, I mean, I get it…

If Francis laid it on the line for Joey and he was a smart guy he might have a change of heart.I read Joey pooped himself at the Vatican.Sad that,Big shot secret service guys all in a flutter to meet the moments need.Poopy pants Joey is not smart.Witness he and silly Milley how they cut and run from Afghanistan.The Border mess on and on.Please note I did not say Gen.Silly or Mllley.General and President both offices once held by Ulyses Grant whom I do call Mr.President and Gen.Sir.What a decline that once great country is in.If JOEY COULD SEE THE CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER in RECIEVING Communion and supporting abortion he would be a better strategist.Perhaps the poop story is Fake news.I am a little behind but if its true its about the only circumstance I would suggest a mask.Francis did not do well instead of receiving him I would rather he booted him until he hits confession and gets his poop well straight.What a disgrace to your country that guy is
The real culprit is the mass of bishops and priests that grovel at his feet. Imagine the spot that Francis and Joe would be in if bishops and priests stood in unison and said “NO. PERIOD. NO.” But they all lack a spine.
Take away the churches tax exemption, I still believe it muzzles it. Do we worship God or Money?

There is much too much emphasis on “feelings” today. It allows truth to be side-lined so as not to “hurt” another, each expected to support another’s delusions so that theirs will also be supported. It is how we got “your truth” and “my truth” while ignoring the truth. It is how we get “accompaniment” in sin, allowing a person to happily run toward hell without understanding.
