A handful of orthodox prelates voiced their indignation over the pope allegedly green-lighting Biden's reception of Holy Communion. Church Militant's Kim Tisor highlights some of their blistering comments about safeguarding the Blessed Sacrament.
The comments, of course, surround fake Catholic Joe Biden receiving Holy Communion, despite his longstanding public support of abortion. Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò issued a statement, yesterday, denouncing the Church's silence over Biden's claims that Pope Francis called him a "good Catholic" and instructed him to keep taking Communion.
Vigano wrote, "Such statements represent an unheard-of scandal since they fail to condemn the positions of a political personality who supports abortion ... profaning the Most Holy Eucharist."
Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, Friday shared a blog post by Cdl. Raymond Burke, who strongly asserted pro-abort Catholic politicians cannot receive the Eucharist. Also Friday, Bp. Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, asked, "Where are the John the Baptists who will confront the Herods of our day?"
Earlier last week, Tobin pleaded with Pope Francis to deny Biden Communion, tweeting, "Dear Pope Francis, you have boldly stated that abortion is 'murder.' Please challenge President Biden. ... His persistent support of abortion is an embarrassment for the Church and a scandal to the world."
Prior to his swearing-in as America's head of state, Joe Biden voiced plans to protect Roe v. Wade. No one questions his staunch commitment to prenatal murder. The only real questions are if and when unfaithful bishops and priests will conform to Church teaching and deny Biden Holy Communion.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will hold its fall assembly later this month, where it plans to revisit discussion that began in June about Eucharistic coherence. But their meeting will not result in restricting pro-abort Catholic politicians like Biden and Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion. Existing Church law, if followed, would accomplish that.
