'The Eucharist is not the reward of saints, but the Bread of sinners. This is why he [Christ] exhorts us: ‘Do not be afraid! Take and eat,' Pope Francis said during a Sunday June 6 homily. Next week the US Conference of Catholic Bishops will discuss whether or not a formal punishment should be laid on pro-abortion politicians like President Joe Biden, including barring them from receiving the Eucharist.
The American Catholic bishops themselves deserve a goodly part of the blame for a failure to implement a clear Vatican directive 25 years ago that has resulted in many not distinctively Catholic institutions and major rulings against religious freedom.
