Germany’s President, Other Celebrities Wade Into Contentious Intercommunion Debate

What options does it leave for Catholics living in dioceses where bishops allow this? If i were an RC in one of these dioceses i would refuse to attend ANY chapel under the leadership of such a bishop. This is pretty serious business. Its blazing a precedent for open communion.


Just don't forget,stuff like Communion in the hand were allowances in a few places that spread globally. What's to stop this from happening and some legalist canon lawyer engaging in good old verbal gymnastics and casuistry in order help explain away peoples concerns?
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God. -Saint Isaac of Syria, Directions on Spiritual Training


"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon
