Cardinal Blase Cupich is scheduled to speak in June at Atlanta's annual Eucharistic Congress. But, as Church Militant's Kristine Christlieb tells us, his being there is sending mixed messages to Catholics.
Since 1997, nearly 30,000 faithful have gathered every year in Atlanta to grow in love of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist.
When Joe Biden was inaugurated in January 2021, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops president Abp. José Gomez issued a letter congratulating him.
But when Gomez expressed "deep concerns" about Biden's anti-Catholic policies, leftist bishops like Cupich complained.
The Eucharistic Congress was started by then-Atlanta archbishop John Donoghue.
In a 2008 interview, he revealed the event's great spiritual fruit: "a reawakening in our parishes of a desire to have public events of prayer and witness — vigils, pageants, processions, public recitation of the Rosary and the Liturgy of the Hours and, above all, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament."
Catholics are left wondering exactly why a cardinal who supports the desecration of the Eucharist is featured at a congress designed to inspire eucharistic devotion.
Abp. Donoghue said the Holy Spirit called him to start the congress to emphasize devotion to our Lord in the Holy Eucharist and foster perpetual adoration in parishes.
