If this whole kerfuffle is indeed what it looks like, what’s more cynical, or more political, than attempting to create a photo op at a Mass at the Vatican in the hopes of scuttling the Bishops’ attempts to protect timeless teachings on the Eucharist? The mere attempt of such a ploy is the definition of weaponizing the Eucharist for political ends, and further proof of the need for clarity in our teaching and practice.

This follows a LifeNews article two days ago, Vatican Tells U.S. Catholic Bishops to Not Deny Communion to Pro-Abortion Politicians, quoting the New York Times. The newspaper described a "rift" between the Vatican and the U.S. bishops.
Hmm....Would a "rift" be a bad thing in view of the many troubling statements and actions from this pope and his inner circle: men like Blase Cupich, Joseph Tobin ("Nighty-night, Baby" bishop), Vincenzo Paglia (of the homosexual mural), Victor Fernandez (author of the kissing book), etc. ad nauseum.
If anyone is "weaponizing" and politicizing the Eucharist, it's the Catholic pro-abortion Democrats who want to play "Let's Pretend." Let's pretend I'm a devout and faithful Catholic so I can hoodwink Catholics into voting for me. And who is aiding and abetting this charade? Do I have to spell it out?
It's sure not the good shepherd bishops who are defending Jesus Christ from sacrilege and defending the faithful from scandal.
Nope! It's the Vatican wolves and dissident priests (James Martin comes to mind.) and Catholic laity (like the nuns on the bus) who want to make sure liberals whose insane policies they promote (like global warming, "vaccine" apartheid, and critical race theory) remain in power. Meanwhile, the Eucharistic scandals and sacrilegious abuse of Our Lord continue.
Francis has said that Communion “is not the reward of saints, but the bread of sinners.” He's right about that, but only if we're talking about sinners who sincerely repent and are trying to become saints.
Is there any evidence that Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Time Kaine, etc. are trying to conform their minds and hearts to Christ and the teachings of his Church?
And I mean those words literally. These cynical politicians make it clear, often and loudly, that they, "WILL NOT SERVE!" They champion the murder of the innocent and sodomy, two of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance. They also spent the last 18 months depriving the worker of his wage by draconian mandates destroying the livelihood of millions. And that is another of the sins that cry to heaven for vengeance!
Pray that the U.S. bishops this week will face up to an abuse crisis every bit as grievous as the sexual abuse of children, the abuse of the Eucharist. If we truly believe that Jesus Christ is present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist we must defend him against abuse with the same vigor we would defend our children.
May our U.S. bishops show us the way this week and not blink in the face of an inevitable media attack and an assault by wolves in sheep's clothing. The Vatican these days is full of them!
Lord Jesus, have mercy on us.
Mary, Mother of the Clergy, pray for us.
St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, pray for us!
