The Archdiocese of Chicago has denied a Catholic funeral to Janine Denomme. Lifesitenews reports that she was a practicing lesbian who accepted "ordination" from the "Womenpriests" movement. She was 45 years old when she succumbed to liver and colon cancer.
By participating in that sham of an "ordination", she incurred excommunication automatically. Not having sought to correct that situation, she was not eligible for a Catholic funeral, owing to the scandal that would be caused.
When faithful Catholics (such as we) were outraged over the scandal caused by the funeral accorded to Ted Kennedy, Archbishop Burke took our part when he stated. "neither Holy Communion nor funeral rites should be administered to" politicians who support abortion or same-sex "marriage. To deny these is not a judgment of the soul, but a recognition of the scandal and its effects."
Amen, Archbishop Burke. The Lifesitenews article has contact information for the Archdiocese of Chicago. Please contact them and thank them for standing for the integrity of the Church. Be assured that the progressive/liberal types are giving them hell galore.
Of course, we'll also pray God's mercy on Ms. Denomme's soul.
