said this week that Catholics who publicly support abortion -- especially politicians -- should not receive Communion

So.. are the priests going to consult a master list of naughty Catholics before dishing out the communion?

How do they identify those who cannot receive communion?

I think this is just a gesture, not an enforceable edict.

Maybe I’m not qualified to comment because it’s not my church in question. But isn’t Communion only allowed to be withheld due to the person’s personal actions, not by what he advocates in terms of public policy? For example, with regard to abortion, shouldn’t the church only apply this to someone who has personally participated in an abortion? I’m not pro-abort, but it would be a shame if Catholic officials were perceived to undermining their independence from the political process.

Pass the communion...Let God settle it.

This is a "thought" sin and while I do not agree with abortion in any way...There are other "sins"...How does a priest weed out the others??

You banned him for saying this?

I think the Vatican is over-run with vermin and scum.

Now you can ban me too.

Allow me to rephrase that . . .

The vatican is and has been over-run with vermin and scum since it's inception

And I will not post in this forum again except Humble-Gunner be re-instated today

Too many liberal bishops and priests in the USA - they won’t do this. Some conservatives will.

“Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small.”

The Catholic Church seldom moves in a hurry, but eventually this will get done. If not this time, then the next time, or the time after that.

In the meantime among the biggest losers are these selfsame pro-abortion politicians, who risk their immortal souls for personal and political gain. Each time they receive communion unworthily, they are risking damnation for themselves as well setting scandalous examples for others.

Actually, Burke might be in a position to do something about it in his new position as Prefect of the Signatura. As I point out in this post, in his new position, he has competence to refer petitions to the Apostolic See (i.e., to the Pope) to the Roman Rota (the "job description" says one of his jobs is: to deal with petitions presented to the Apostolic See for obtaining the commission of a case to the Roman Rota or some other favour relative to the administration of justice). If you click on the link, I have posted the actual Vatican document that defines Burke's authority in his new position.

So I'm not sure that the bishops could ignore him: at least once he, in his official capacity, has the opportunity to actually hear a case. If they ignore him in his official role, I'd say they do so at their own peril (note: "in his official role" does not include talking to Catholic News Agency)
