The following is from Judie Brown, President of American Life League.
No one worried about receiving the Holy Eucharist in a state of mortal sin, but the coronavirus shows up and suddenly we have all these rules and regulations in every diocese!
It’s enough to make an average Catholic wonder.
What will it take for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to defend the Holy Eucharist against pro-abortion Catholic public figures?
Abortion Joe Biden doesn’t seem to be much concerned. Neither was Nancy Pelosi as she was lobbying to give Planned Parenthood access to over $1 billion in federal taxpayer funding in direct violation of the Hyde Amendment.
. . . and do we even need to mention Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez?
Yet once again — with few and notable exceptions — where are our bishops? Why are Masses closed while Planned Parenthood remains open for business?
It is high time the USCCB start enforcing Canon 915 and take square aim at those who are giving aid and comfort to Planned Parenthood and the hundreds of abortion centers still open across the country.
Right now in Virginia, it is a Class 1 misdemeanor to attend Holy Mass with more than 10 people. That’s 12 months in jail and/or a $2,500 fine.
But Planned Parenthood abortion centers across America are exempt from these restrictions as they continue to slaughter innocent babies.
If the USCCB can’t stand up to the likes of Planned Parenthood, how on earth are they ever going to stand firm in defense of the Holy Eucharist from sacrilege by these pro-abortion Catholics?
Every year, American Life League publishes our “Deadly Dozen” list — 12 so-called Catholic public figures who defy Catholic teaching on abortion, yet still receive the Eucharist in defiance of Canon Law.
This year, we want to make sure the Catholic bishops have the guts to do the right thing. If they can protect the Eucharist from a virus, they can protect the Eucharist from the worst virus of them all — an obstinate mortal sin.
Where on earth are our shepherds??
Our Catholic bishops need to be reminded of their duties to the Catholic faithful. If we can protect the Eucharist from a virus, we can protect the Eucharist from sacrilege. Simple as that!
PS: REMEMBER that no one worried about receiving the Holy Eucharist in a state of obstinate mortal sin, but a virus shows up and suddenly we have all these rules and regulations in every diocese!
Masses are closed; Planned Parenthood is open; our bishops are silent. All we have is one another — which is why I urgently need your help to enforce Canon 915 today.
