Michael speaks strongly of the glaring omission of the USCCB’s Eucharistic Coherence document, passed by 95% of participants, the omission in that document of all that is Canon 915, which would have such as pro-abortion politicians be denied Holy Communion.
The bishops respond, of course, by pointing to footnotes in which some numbers of paragraphs of the Catechism are cited in fine-print for further reading.
Um… Just about nobody is going to read their incoherent document, however nice it is. Pretty much close to zero of those who do are going to look up footnotes that cite numbers. But, they know that. And voted for it.
I, for one, will continue to follow Canon 915 regardless of what any bishop, including the Bishop of Rome, have to say about it. After all, as the interpretation of that Canon has it, this isn’t a matter of mere policy, the whim of an overly politicized bishop, no. It’s about Divine Revelation. Remember Saint Paul, 1 Corinthians 11:29?
- “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.”
The Lord Jesus, present Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, our Eucharistic King, cannot be discerned by someone who is pro-abortion, for Jesus was Himself in the womb of His dear mother for nine months. Jesus Himself says that what you do to the least of the brethren you do to me. There’s no one more defenseless that the little ones in their mother’s wombs.
P.S. Can any of you just click on that video above. Is it just a link, or no link, but you have to cut and paste it into an address-bar?
