It's not quite as bad as it sounds. She did not read the Gospel or attempt to simulate the Sacrament, but it's still pretty horrifying!

Pro-Abortion Politician Allowed to Lead Communion in Her Local Catholic Church[url=https://musingsofanoldcurmudgeon.blogspot.com/2018/06/pro-abortion-politician-allowed-to-lead.html][/url]
::Sigh::

You have to wonder if she even knew any better. :/
How can laity lead a Communion service? I thought only a priest can do this. Is this more Vatican ll nonsense?

Only a Priest can celebrate Mass, however, the Rite of Distributing Communion Outside Mass is found in chapter one of “Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharist Outside Mass,” in the Roman Ritual (post-Conciliar).

What does post-Conciliar mean?

After Vatican II, in other words more Vatican II nonsense.

The Rite for Distributing Holy Communion Outside Mass existed before the Council, but it was absolutely restricted to the Priest. I believe that the new Rite is supposed to be restricted to a Priest or a Deacon, but I know that permission has been granted to laymen (actually usually laywomen) to do it in 'priestless' Parishes or if the Pastor is absent during the week.

So it’s exactly as I had thought. It’s a shame such things are being abused or allowed to be done sacrilege to.
Oh it’s so hard to see such things allowed by the Church.

That is not exactly true. There were instances in emergencies when a layman would distribute communion if there was a danger of profanation.

There may have been an indult given in an emergency, but the 1964 Rite begins, 'When a priest is about to administer the holy Eucharist outside of Mass', so I stand by my statement.

Rite For Administering Holy Communion Apart From Mass
The Archbishop of Dublin has issued a stern public rebuke of the Irish Culture Minister, who coordinated the government’s campaign to legalize abortion, for taking over the sanctuary when her parish priest was a no-show for Mass last weekend.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin “has launched an astonishing attack on Culture Minister Josepha Madigan, accusing her of being ‘deeply disrespectful’ to her parishioners,” according to a report in Ireland’s Independent.
Madigan coordinated Fine Gael's “Yes” campaign in the lead-up to the recent referendum on repealing the Eighth Amendment. Madigan described the previous ban on abortion as “barbaric,” according to an Irish Herald report.  She also “questioned people who felt it wasn't possible to be a member of the Catholic Church and back repeal.”
After she conducted what amounted to an impromptu communion service, Madigan went on the record asserting that no priest showed up to say Mass because there are too few priests in Ireland.  
The Archbishop said Madigan had upset her fellow parishioners by trying to push her “particular agenda,” according to the Independent report, which continued:
Quote:“Many have contacted my offices to express their hurt and upset at the Minister’s comments, as reported in the media,” Mr Martin said.
He added that there are “no shortage of priests” in the Archdiocese, explaining that the situation on Saturday evening arose “due to a misunderstanding”.
“It is in no way correct to say that the Minister ‘said Mass’. It is regrettable that that Minister Madigan used this occasion to push a particular agenda.
“Her expressed view that a mix-up in a Dublin parish on one particular Saturday evening should lead to the Universal Church changing core teachings is bizarre,” Dr Martin’s statement said.
And he added that she should “consider the hurt she has caused to parishioners who deem her actions deeply disrespectful.”
