From Matt C. Abbott at Renew America:
A pro-life activist recently emailed Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of Springfield, Ill., regarding pro-abortion “Catholic” U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
Bishop Paprocki responded:
Dear Mr. [name redacted], Senator Durbin was informed several years ago by his pastor at Blessed Sacrament Parish here in Springfield that he was not permitted to receive Holy Communion per canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law. My predecessor upheld that decision and it remains in effect. It is my understanding that the senator is complying with that decision here in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois.
Good for Bishop Paprocki!
I second that! I wish that the next time the pudgy huckster showed up on a talking head show the “reporter” would ask him about this decision, don’t you?
Where are the bishops in California to do the same to Pelosi?
And why doesn’t the Pope just excommunicate the whole disgusting bunch?
