“The first question is not of kindness or cruelty, but of rightness or wrongness. Kindness in a doctor treating the human body is no substitute for rightness, nor in anyone else doing anything else, above all not in the social order.” Frank Sheed
Some of you may be aware of the story of Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, who in an ironic twist, was sacrificed on the altar of homosexual faux kindness while administering the true sacrifice of the altar. His faculties were removed by the Archdiocese of Washington after he refused communion to a lesbian who had intentionally introduced her gay lover to him right before Mass. After the predictable liberal hue and cry, he was punished for following canon law. For the first time, he has publicly explained what really happened. Please pray for him and for his archbishop. It is sad when a priest is martyred for his faith, sadder still when it is an inside job. Unfortunately for the priests in his archdiocese the message is that identity politics trumps the integrity of the Eucharist, and that the sanctity of the body, blood, soul and divinity of the Lord is not worth any bad press.
