Leaders of the Catholic parish Joe Biden attends in Washington, D.C. refuse to deny the pro-abortion politician Holy Communion despite his extreme anti-life positions that keep him out of full communion with the faith.
Life News reports:
The State reports the Holy Trinity Catholic Church issued the statement after the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops voted to draft a teaching document on Communion that could rebuke pro-abortion politicians like Biden
“Holy Trinity Catholic Church will not deny the Eucharist to persons presenting themselves to receive it,” the church responded in a statement.
Biden has attended Mass and received Communion several times at Holy Trinity since being elected president. He attended the same church when he served as vice president under President Barack Obama.
The priests said they agree with Cardinal Wilton Gregory, the archbishop of Washington, D.C., that politicians like Biden should not be denied the Eucharist.
The statement continues, “As a parish which has a long history of welcoming all, we concur with and support the pastoral approach of our Archbishop.” It concludes, “Holy Trinity Catholic Church will not deny the Eucharist to persons presenting themselves to receive it.”
