From today's Vortex we hear the Holy Father stating that he and the bishops must own up to the deficiencies in teaching of the Faith, citing in particular the failure to "communicate the rich heritage of Catholic teaching on marriage as a natural institution elevated by Christ to the dignity of a sacrament."
Given the events following the funeral Mass on February 25th, does anyone think that the DC chancery has learned its lesson? Sadly it seems not. In contradicting and even punishing Father Guarnizo when he withheld Communion from a practicing lesbian, the chancery not only failed to communicate Catholic teaching regarding authentic natural marriage, but undermined the priest who attempted to communicate the teaching to those obviously misguided individuals.
