About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

A test of the new Pope?

Evidently theres a potential showdown between the Vatican and some of our more notable Catholic politicians who enthusiastically promote abortion:  http://www.nationaljournal.com/congress/house-delegation-plans-journey-to-rome-for-installation-of-pope-francis-20130315

Here's a defining moment for the new Pontiff. Will he or won't he direct that pro abort Catholic politicians are NOT to present themselves for Communion? If he doesn't then a lot of the pro life crowd can justifiably feel abandoned. That would be a lousy way to launch this papacy.

If he does publicly enforce Canon Law Article 915 then many of the proponents of the Culture of Death will see a line drawn in the sand in a very public manner. Life might get a lot more interesting throughout the Church due to that.

God's will be done, may He have mercy on us all.

Will the Pontiff even be made aware that Pelosi and Biden are Obama's delegation, and will he be informed as to their pro-abortion, pro-sodomy stance? I suspect that there will be a great many politicians from many different countries going, including perhaps a delegation from Cristina Kirchner in Argentina. The Pope has to deal with hundreds of people, so shifting the wheat from chaff may be difficult.

I predict a first-class explosion. I don't credit Pelosi or Biden with enough sense not to present themselves for Communion. And I do credit them with enough pettiness to scream bloody murder when they're denied it.

Ioannes, you bring up a good point. We'll have to see how this plays out.

Subvet said...

Old Bob, we can only hope!

Well, if Francis really feels compelled to rebuild the Church I feel this would be a great place to start.

I have to agree with Ioannes in this. I see no reason why he would have followed American politics so closely as to know Biden from Ryan or Pelosi from Santorum. At some point, I hope, he will repeat what he's already said as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, but I don't expect it for Tuesday ... he'll probably be more concerned with setting out the general program of his pontificate.

If in fact they were denied communion I would be exultant! It's going to take something that dramatic.

But I doubt it will happen.
