Just a weeeee snippet

at taste, a tease perhaps, from my interview with Archbishop Raymond Burke yesterday:

He says (again) that the Catholic politician who votes for pro-abortion legislation and receives Holy Communion must be refused:

It’s an absolute. And rightly so because the Holy Eucharist, the most sacred reality of our life in the Church has to be protected against sacrilege, and at the same time, individuals have to be protected for the sake of their own salvation from committing one of the gravest sins, namely to receive Holy Communion unworthily.

Now that's what a Catholic bishop sounds like.

The rest coming soon to a laptop near you at LifeSiteNews.com


why are we so dogged on this?

Put the words "must be refused" into the LifeSite search and find out.

Gotta looooove Archbishop Burke. For those who haven't, you need to read his definitive paper on this subject: http://www.therealpresence.org/eucharst/holycom/denial.htm

I wrote to him to complement him on his good work in writing this, and he sent me back a personally signed letter enclosing a printed and bound copy. Nice guy!

Burke's smackdown of Faithful Citizenship makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
