TRANSCRIPT

You can count one more prelate among the small chorus of prelates calling on the Church to refuse Joe Biden Holy Communion, until he repents.

Church Militant's Paul Murano looks at this latest episcopal admonition, affirming that those not in communion with the Church cannot receive Our Eucharistic Lord.

Saturday, at a Eucharistic Symposium in the diocese of Arlington, retired archbishop Charles Chaput said what many confused Catholics have long needed to hear: "Mr. Biden's apostasy on the abortion issue is only the most repugnant example. ... [A]ny priest who now provides Communion to the president participates in his hypocrisy."

Chaput is in a very small group of elite prelates who've gone public to address the scandal for the salvation of souls.

Cdl. Raymond Burke, incumbent patron, Sovereign Military Order of Malta: "A Catholic may not support abortion in any shape or form ... ."

Cardinal Raymond Burke understands the gravity of allowing a so-called Catholic pro-abortion president to receive Holy Communion.

Cdl. Raymond Burke: "That would be a sacrilege — endanger the salvation of his own soul; but also he should not approach to receive Holy Communion because he gives scandal."

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has also spoken out against the sacrilege.

Abp. Salvatore Cordileone, archdiocese of San Francisco: "We're talking about killing innocent human beings. So this is a very serious matter. Anyone who cooperates in that is involving themselves in a very serious sin."

Others, like Bp. Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, have spoken out about eucharistic coherence.

Bp. Joseph Strickland: "It's huge. It is a life and death matter for Nancy Pelosi and for any person who wantonly receives the Body of Christ."

But the overwhelming majority of clergy has kept silent in the midst of scandal.

Such silence leaves the flock of American Catholics and those watching around the world confused on the sacredness of both human life and the Eucharist.

In his address, Chaput lamented, "Even many who regularly attend Sunday Mass no longer believe in the Real Sacrifice or the Real Presence."
