CANASTOTA, NY - The most frequently cited justification I have heard offered for not withholding Holy Communion from prominent Catholic politicians and public figures who obstinately persist in supporting laws and public policies contrary to Catholic Church teaching is "the unwillingness to politicize the Eucharist".

But somehow THIS does not politicize the Eucharist? Please read this article.

Which must be more important to the Catholic Church and its members: the salvation of souls and protecting the Sacredness of the Eucharist or immigration reform?

Light a virtual candle and say a prayer

The future of our Church and the salvation of souls rest on answering this question correctly.
