But my purpose here is not to go into a treatise on Holy Communion but to illustrate the lack of belief in the Real Presence on the part of many of our bishops. How could the USCCB even suggest such sacrilege if they had even just a smidgen of belief in the Real Presence as taught by the Church? And that's not the only teachings that are being disobeyed by many bishops. Toronto Catholic Witness reports that Archbishop Henryk Hoser of the Archdiocese of Warszawa-Praga has stated quite frankly that "some bishops do not even accept the official teachings of the Church". In the context of that interview, he is speaking of the Church's teachings on sexuality and family, particularly Humanae Vitae.
Until this past sin-nod, there were well-intentioned Catholics who could just not admit that there are serious problems with this papacy. The truth is becoming harder and harder to deny, as evidenced by some very recent articles. Please read:
- "The Soiled Shoes Of The Fisherman" by George Neumayr
- "Pope vs Church: The Anatomy Of A Catholic Civil War" by Damian Thompson
- "What Some Synod Fathers Could Learn From St. Charles Borromeo" by Donald Prudlo
I'd also suggest reading One Peter Five's piece. He is spot-on. What some people are just now seeing has been ongoing for decades now. I'll echo my colleague's last line: "Welcome to the war. It's about time you showed up."
