In a recent interview, the new Archbishop of Chicago advocates pro-abortion politicians committing sacrilege by receiving the Blessed Sacrament.
According to the New Code of Canon Law, Canon 915, which all of the post Counciliar clergy adhere to, states:
“Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.“ ~Canon 915
“As long as they’re in church, are willing to hear the word of God, be open to Christ’s call of conversion for each one of us, that’s sufficient for me,” Cupich says. “We cannot politicize the communion rail. I just don’t think that works in the long run.” ~Archbishop Cupich
Isn’t “Christ’s call of conversion for each one of us” repenting from sin and professing belief in all the teachings of the Catholic Church? We must not follow the same Christ.
On another note, what “Communion rail” is this he speaks of? These Modernists destroyed them decades ago.
Why does the title of my post say that the Pope is defying Church Law? Well, it was the Pope who sent him to Chicago, was it not? Please don’t tell me the tiring excuse that he “didn’t know.” The Pope knows very well what he’s doing. He is picking men “after his own heart”, so to speak, to continue the demolition of what’s left of the Catholic Church.
“A lot of other Catholics are trying to absorb the news as well, just as surprised that Francis picked the 65-year-old Cupich, who had been considered a long shot by many Vatican handicappers. They were also pleased, or concerned, that the pope had evidently chosen a bishop who shared his own emphasis on listening to the flock and caring for the poor. “I think that he” — Francis — “sent a pastor, not a message,” Cupich told reporters.”
The Congregation for Bishops usually makes the decision on the appointments of Bishops but in this case, the Pope specifically chose Archbishop Cupich himself.
“Cupich’s promotion to this particularly important position, that usually entails the elevation to the cardinalatial red, was a personal decision of Pope Francis himself. More precisely, the Pope imposed his candidate on Cardinal Ouellet and the Congregation for Bishops, under the desperate suggestion of the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò.”
Archbishop Cupich is a well known Modernist and Progressivist. Doing a simple search on the man will prove that.
I suggest prayer for these Modernists and those hell bent on destroying what is left of the Faith.
I’m also thinking of a certain Cardinal named Bernadin.
Is this Bernadin resurrected?
