More Kudos for Bishop Martino!

Thank you! Philadelphia can be so proud that you are a native son! In a forthright and clear manner, your official notice on Worthiness to Receive Communion "reminds all ministers of Holy Communion, Ordinary and Extraordinary, that:
  1. To administer the Sacred Body and Blood of the Lord is a serious duty which they have received from the Church, and no one having accepted this responsibility has the right to ignore the Church’s law in this regard;

  2. Those whose unworthiness to receive Holy Communion is known publicly to the Church must be refused Holy Communion in order to prevent sacrilege and to prevent the Catholic in question from committing further grave sin through unworthy reception" <www.dioceseofscranton.org/news/OfficialNoticeOnCommunionFebruary26,2009.asp>
Thank you for embodying the great love which dares to speak the truth! Thank you also for your follow-up to Senator Casey, reminding him that there must be "utter clarity when it comes to the teaching of the Church on matters that pertain to the taking of innocent life and the special responsibilities that fall to you, Senator, as a lawmaker to oppose abortion and other clear evils." <www.dioceseofscranton.org/news/BishopWritesSenatorCaseyFebruary26,2009.asp>. No matter who it is who presently has his ear, I pray that Senator Casey will hear the Lord's truth which you are speaking to him.

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
