(LifeSiteNews) – In the latest episode of The Bishop Strickland Show, Bishop Joseph Strickland discussed the importance of reverence and respect which every Catholic should have when receiving Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
Strickland shared his thoughts on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) draft document on receiving Holy Communion and “Eucharistic Coherence.”
While the bishop of Tyler, Texas praised main parts of the statement which teach “beautiful ancient truths about the Eucharist,” he stated that receiving Christ in a state of holiness has to be emphasized. Strickland said that “this document simply needs a dose of John the Baptist.”
“In light of all of that, we can’t turn a blind eye to those who don’t show the reverence and respect,” Strickland added, making a possible reference to pro-abortion ‘Catholic’ politicians such as Joe Biden.
Overall, Strickland mentioned he hopes that the document will promote “real reverence” towards the Eucharist. “We need to be reminded that there are too many voices in the world that discount the idea of repentance and turning from sin and acknowledging that I better live the Ten Commandments, because receiving the Eucharist is the greatest act of love of the Lord.”
Bishop Strickland also called on Nancy Pelosi to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church, which she says she professes. “She has an ill informed conscience, and she needs to be brought to the truth and brought to making decisions that are based on that truth,” he said. “That’s the loving thing to do.”
