On February 25th, at a funeral Mass at St John Neumann Church in Gaithersburg, Father Marcel Guarnizo (then assigned to that parish) quietly withheld Holy Communion from the daughter of the deceased. The daughter was at the time (most likely still is) actively engaged in a homosexual relationship.
From that day onward, through March and beyond, I posted very extensively on this matter. There's no need to rehash the particulars here; anyone unfamiliar with this matter can go back and examine the posts and related links.
Today the Archdiocese of Washington confirmed that Father Guarnizo will no more serve in the Archdiocese of Washington. You can read the accounts of MSNBC and the Washington Post. The loss is that of the Archdiocese of Washington. The shame is that of the chancery - right up to Cardinal Wuerl himself.
At the bottom of the Post article, you'll read that Fr Guarnizo gave an address a week ago Saturday during a symposium on "Religious Freedom and Democracy" at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, VA. I was in attendance and recorded Father's address. It was an excellent address and I urge you to listen here.
