When I saw the New York Times’ Headline Pope’s Silence Speaks Volumes on Controversial Communion Vote by U.S. Bishops I knew it would be worth a laugh.
As mind-numbing stupid as I expected.
☑ Quoting Austen Ivereigh
☑ CDF Document seen as slap-down
☑ US dominant Conservative bishops not following Pope Francis’ more pastoral approach
Apparently they are totally unaware that of the text produced by Latin American bishops in 2007 led by then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. Or that he might have even coined the term “Eucharistic Coherence”. Or even the existing document by the USCCB on the subject.
Most reporting on the Church should just redirect to The Pillar so that you get informed, not POV-slanted-narrative.
- Has Pope Francis weighed in on ‘Eucharistic coherence?’ – The Pillar
- What the USCCB already teaches about ‘Eucharistic coherence’ – The Pillar
- CDF head calls for ‘extensive and serene’ debate on Communion by US bishops – The Pillar
Plus we have the flurry of politicians and celebrities weighing in with opinions that show they have not spent 1 second looking into why their gotcha-proof-of-hypocrispy just might be vaporous. Straw prices will probably climb with the scarcity due to all the straw men being constructed.
I am a bit tired of being lectured by those who think murdering the pre-born is A-OK, but denying the Eucharist (which they probably don’t even believe in the reality of) as a high crime.
I saw one Catholic Congressman tweet a list that would make a fine list of items to go into confession with to repent of. Instead it is a brag and a dare to the USCCB.
Plus I want every single one of these critics to become saints. I want them to love Jesus in the most Holy Sacrament so much that worldly fascinations with the spirit of the age will seem like a mess of pottage that they were tricked into receiving (thus rejecting somebody else’s birthright – to be born).
