The Vatican recently released a letter in response to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and its planned meeting to consider allowing pro-abortion politicians to receive the Holy Eucharist.
In the letter, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, wrote in a letter that any new policy “requires that dialogue occurs in two stages: first among the bishops themselves, and then between bishops and Catholic pro-choice politicians within their jurisdictions.”
According to Fox News, “Ladaria also said any new statement on who was worthy to receive Communion should not target Catholic politicians but Catholics as a whole, and he questioned whether the conference’s policy identifying abortion as a ‘preeminent’ issue would be misleading if it ‘were to give the impression that abortion and euthanasia alone constitute the only grave matters of Catholic moral and social teaching that demand the fullest accountability on the part of Catholics.’”
But now a cardinal is breaking his silence on pro-abortion Cardinals Tobin and Cupich who have been lobbying on behalf of anti-life politicians receiving the Eucharist.
While speaking with EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo, Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, who previously served at prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said, “I think these two bishops came to Rome as members or representatives of the Democratic Party.”
