Discussion about the Father Guarnizo situation continues.
Here is Ed Peters' latest.
Here it is again, on Deacon Greg Kandra's site, which I include because Dr. Peters does not allow comments.
Here is commentary from Mark Shea.
The Curt Jester weighs in here.
My final (I hope) thoughts on this matter are as follows: gay and lesbian activists, pro-abortion politicians, those baptized Catholics who now hate the Church and everything she stands for, unmarried couples shacking up whose status isn't already publicly known to the whole parish, divorced and remarried Catholics with invalid marriages outside the Church who are not known to the priest, and anyone else who feels entitled to the Eucharist: go ahead. Line up for Communion secure in the knowledge that no priest will ever dare to withhold the Blessed Sacrament from you again.
Never mind any notion that priests in charity ought not to help people to eat and drink condemnation upon themselves; that notion, a pious thought, is not covered by Canon 915. So unless you are clearly, indisputably, indubitably obstinately persisting in manifest grave sin, go ahead.
And even if you are obstinately persisting in manifest grave sin, go ahead. By the time the Church's authorities and legal minds finish arguing about what "obstinate," "persisting," "manifest," "grave," and "sin" mean, you'll be long deceased, as will we all.
Go ahead. Advance your agendas, commit your sacrileges, and don't be afraid that anyone will dare to embarrass you or hurt your feelings. It won't happen. Not anymore.
So go ahead.
