Answer: Never. (I sure would be happy to be wrong about this.)
Query: What is Cardinal Edward Egan doing about the thrice-married, pro-abortion GOP politician Rudolph Giuliani receiving Communion when Pope Benedict XVI was in New York City?
Answer: Reports (click on this post's title) are that Cardinal Egan says he deeply regrets what Giuliani did and will seek a meeting with him to insist he abide by a years-previous agreement that Giuliani would not receive.
Comment: Some pro-lifers are praising Cardinal Egan. And it is good that he is making a public issue of this matter. But in the end, won't Cardinal Egan merely keep relying on Giuliani's evidently nonexistent good will, instead of ordering ministers of the Eucharist to refuse him Communion?
We need our U.S. hierarchy, including Cardinal Mahony, Cardinal Egan and Archbishop Wuerl, to start heeding Cardinal Arinze's comments that even a child can see pro-abortion politicians should be refused Communion.
Before anyone says the Pope should order this done, let's remember that Pope Benedict did make his feelings clear in his airplane remarks on the Brazil trip, and that Popes throughout history have rarely disciplined or removed Cardinals.
May Cardinal Mahony and all bishops finally protect the babies by stopping the Catholic pro-abortion politicians from receiving Communion. Amen.
