When the ‘blood of 60 million innocent American children cries out for justice,’ pastors cannot speak quietly, reducing the murder of babies to a ‘culture of choice,’ Cordileone said.
To win the Eucharist battle, faithful Catholics must treat the threshold for receiving the Body and Blood of Christ much higher than not promoting abortion.
Will the church view the culture war through the gospel, or will it view the gospel through the culture war? One approach is biblical. The other is deadly.
The U.S. bishops’ vote won’t ‘deny’ anyone communion. It will seek, instead, to educate American Catholics about the meaning of the Holy Eucharist.
Let’s dispense with the idea that this is complicated. Catholic teaching is clear: politicians who support abortion should not receive communion. Period.
A recent poll shows that 74 percent of mass-going Catholics believe that officials who oppose church teaching should be denied Communion.
Bishops are keeping sacraments suspended indefinitely and allowing Washington churches to be treated differently than other establishments in terms of opening.
The church should be clear in its voice that the sacraments are essential and necessary to life, and that they will continue no matter what.
‘Amoris Laetitia,’ like Pope Francis himself, was needed and is disheartening.
