H/T to Some Have Hats
Pewsitter has started a Petition to Withhold Holy Communion from prominent dissident Catholics.
I have not signed the petition...yet. I am also not asking any of my readers to do so either. That is entirely up to you.
Although, I feel it is scandalous that these public "Catholic" figures continue to thumb their nose at the Catholic church, and still have the nerve (I wanted to use a well-known Yiddish term here but I think it is a bad word), to go up to receive our Lord's Body in Holy Communion, ... do we have the right to petition our bishops to act?
I really don't know. I would think the bishops are well aware how they have to follow the church's teachings and guidelines for dealing with unrepentant Catholics, without the laity getting involved.
I know my own husband is becoming very outspoken in calling for these "Catholics'" excommunication.
But as far as I am know, the Church isn't run that way.
