More talking the talk, but not walking the walk

More talking the talk, but not walking the walk

Several more bishops have warned heterodox politicians not to come to Communion, but they won’t go the extra step demanded of them by canon law in their roles as bishops and pastors: to deny them Communion. Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo, North Dakota said last week to pro-abortion Catholics that Catholics who separate their faith life from their professional and social activities are risking hell. He then tells them that they should not receive Communion, but does not say whether he will deny any who come before him or instruct his priests to do so.

  • Another observation I make is that not even Arinze, Burke, or Bruskewitz has any public advice or suggestions for brother bishops.  I wonder what the tipping point is, if it exists where a bishop will have the courage to dare to challenge the status quo at least in this area.

    Hey, Deal: We don’t “take Communion”.  You’re starting to sound like the NY Times coverage of Catholic issues.
