Thank you for clarifying for me. I was uncertain whether Cardinal Burke could himself directly admonish Pelosi et al not to present for communion. In other words not force Wuerl’s hand but act by virtue of his own authority. Thanks again!
You’re welcome, but I should be clear: I’m no expert. And from what I understand, a lot of this is based on precedent, not canon law.
For the longest time, I had a tagline from St. John Crysostom, “The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishops.” This was “the golden-mouthed” complaint that bishops were failing to admonish wicked sinners back in the fourth century. He was reminding them that they take on the responsibility in eternal judgment for any sins that were committed because they failed to correct moral failures among their flock.
