Cardinal Burke: Protecting Eucharist (And Unborn Children) From Pro-Abort Politicians Not Rocket Science

 America’s most senior Vatican prelate and the head of the Vatican’s highest court, the Apostolic Signatura, was recently interviewed by Raymond Arroyo of EWTN (full video here)

Cardinal Burke reiterates the fundamental truth that the Holy Eucharist, which is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, must be protected from desecration, profanation and sacrilege. The context of his remarks was centred in Canon 915 which mandates the denial of Holy Communion to those public sinners who persist in manifestly grave sin, such as pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia, pro-homosexual “marriage”, etc.

In evaluating the factors contributing to the tragedy of legalized child-killing in our nation, I have previously noted the pre-eminent role that “desecration of the Eucharist by obstinate, dissenting "Catholics" living in grave sin” has played. Yet very few Catholic Bishops in Canada or the USA take decisive action on this directive from Holy Mother Church. Thus the killing continues, as Judie Brown of American Life League pointed out in her interview with Michael Voris last week.

In Canada it’s typically 120,000 or more human lives lost annually, each one just as precious and just as worthwhile as yours or mine. Why are we so indifferent?
