Why is this “sin” greater then any other sin in God's eyes and why should a Catholic be absolved from receiving Holy Communion only because of this sin? This thread should prove interesting. For Goodness sakes, Jesus knew the the Deciples were about to betray the Son of Man, deny him, yet he freely offered them his body and blood....

Pope Benedict XVI told a group of priests yesterday that he was once “more severe” in terms of administering baptism and confirmation to ill-prepared or lukewarm candidates, but today he’s inclined to be generous wherever there is even “a flicker of desire for communion in the faith.”

Maybe when Archbishop Burke grows up he too will be more generous and more of the mind of Christ.

Those who disregard these words are also forgetting the power to bind and loose has been given to the Bishops and their pronouncements and judgments are eternal in the spiritual realm.
