Sacrilege Communion: Francis vs. Benedict XVI

Vatican expert Maike Hickson at Onepeterfive reported:

"A possible reason as to why Pope Francis wishes this CDF [Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith] letter [accordingly to Kath.net approved by Francis rejecting the majority of the German bishops move to give Communion to Protestants] to remain unpublished is that he is not happy with it."

"... it was Pope Francis himself who... in 2015... opened up to the idea that a Protestant spouse could... [receive] Holy Communion... One well-informed clerical source therefore told Onepeterfive that this move was coming "from the very top in Rome [Francis]."
(Onepeterfive.com," A Crucial Moment For the Church: Intercommunion Debate in Rome in May," April 30, 2018)

Vatican expert Edward Pentin revealed:

""The Register understands from reliable and authoritative sources that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has given his full support to the seven [German] bishops and their letter to the Vatican [CDF which rejected the move to give sacrilege Communion to Protestants].
(National Catholic Register, "Complete Letter of Seven German Bishops on Holy Communion for Protestant Spouses Published," April 25, 2018)

If both reports are true then this is the first time that Benedict has directly went against Francis's moves to give Communion sacrilegiously.

Benedict never countered Francis's moves to give Communion sacrilegiously to adulterous couples, but is apparently directly moving against the current pope, if Onepeterfive's source is correct that the majority of German bishops move comes "from the very top in Rome," on sacrilegiously shared Communion with Protestants

Former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine the Faith Msgr. Nicola Bux told Pentin:

"[S]hared Eucharistic Communion... would 'go against Revelation and the Magisterium', leading Christians to 'commit blasphemy and sacrilege.'"
(National Catholic Register, "Theologian: Shared Communion With Protestants Would be Blasphemy and Sacrilege," January 2, 2017)


Pray an Our Father now for Benedict XVI to strongly move against all of Francis's moves to promote sacrilege Communion and to work for a true restoration of the Church as did St. Pope Pius V.

Benedict just gave Barnhardtism a gigantic booster shot.

Pope Paul gave Communion to the Protestant spouse at a wedding he officiated. John Paul II have Communion to a non-Catholic, as did Cardinal Ratzinger. If it can be done by a pope in an unusual situation, why not by priests generally?

Because it would "'go against Revelation and the Magisterium', leading Christians to 'commit blasphemy and sacrilege.'"

Just because a Pope does a sinful thing doesn't mean that it SHOULD be done.

I agree completely; Communion should not be given to non-Catholics. Too bad when "Popes go against Revelation and the Magisterium." It makes a guy wonder about them.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
