Pro-abortion "katholyc" Joe Biden attended Palm Sunday Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral. Cardinal Dolan was the main celebrant. At Communion time Biden strode right up to receive - under the Cardinal's eye. From the Vortex clip we hear that Cardinal Dolan gave Biden a "shout-out" from the altar. I agree with Voris that the "shout-out" itself was a disgusting "kiss-up" to Biden simply because the latter is famous and well-connected. An aside - Cardinal Dolan might do well to read Paul's letters to the first bishop named Timothy and to study closely the admonitions against favoritism.
A few weeks ago, I opined that the distribution of Communion to Biden at Pope Francis' first Mass was most likely no fault of the distributing priest as the latter probably didn't recognize Biden. I pointed out that the real problem is "state-side" and it manifested itself at St Patrick's last Sunday. The cardinal most certainly recognized Biden (the wrong way, given the shout-out). He had absolutely no excuse for disobedience to Canon 915. Then they went for coffee afterwards. I would be pleasantly surprised to learn that the Cardinal heard Biden's confession at that time - but it would be a surprise. There was some chatter during the papal elections that Dolan might be a candidate; clearly God saved His Church from the disaster his election would have been.
We faithful Catholics must intercede and offer reparation - but we must also do more than that. We cannot pray for a specific intention if we ourselves aren't prepared to be the answer to that prayer. Are we, the laity, willing to act? That might mean withholding donations (and letting recipients know why). It might mean picketing or leafleting church parking lots. It might mean directly confronting the offending minister and/or katholyc. Are we willing to step out of our comfort zones? Perhaps God is not calling you to that, but if He were, would you be willing to obey?
