But Christ having come a high priest of the good things to come, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.

Is Archbishop Wuerl doing his job?

HLI Leader Says: "I don't believe Archbishop Wuerl is doing his job"

Washington Archbishop Wuerl Won't Discipline or Deny Communion to Pro-Abortion Speaker Pelosi

Openly pro-abortion senator receiving Holy Communion from Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop SambiBy John-Henry Westen

WASHINGTON, DC, January 16, 2007 ( - Perhaps it was a bad omen when at the installation Mass for the new Archbishop of Washington Donald Wuerl last June, pro-abortion Democratic Senator John Kerry was given Holy Communion and caught on camera in the act. During the entrance procession, Archbishop Wuerl shook hands with Kerry and Senator Ted Kennedy (see coverage).

Now, Archbishop Wuerl, who replaced Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, has said publicly that he would not discipline or direct priests to deny communion to pro-abortion Catholic politician Nancy Pelosi who was just made speaker of the House of Representatives. [rest of article here]


Is it too much to expect our bishops to oppose the slaughter of innocents and support the worthy reception of Holy Communion?

I just read this story from three months ago, when the Democrats took control of the United States Congress. I wish I could hope that Abp Wuerl had repented by now of his sin of permitting and even supporting such scandalous, sacrilegious communions.
