DEATH & DOOM AVERTED! Pope Says No To Allowing Holy Communion For Protestant Spouses

Well I guess death and destruction lost.

The only person hurt by unworthily receiving Holy Communion is the recipient himself.

Many tend to ignore the dangers of unworthily receiving Holy Communion.

Death is one of the bad fruits of unworthily receiving Holy Communion.

Many think that the public scandal given by one who unworthily receives Holy Communion is the worse thing ever, when in fact the worse thing is the punishment from on high meted out to the person who unworthily received Holy Communion. 

That's the worse thing.

Take for instance the Catholic Lady who spent Sunday in New York City away from her Catholic Family who lived in Texas. She was business woman and she was a Catholic.

Her life ended on a plane - her head was sucked out the plane window, in a freak accident.

Ask yourself why would God allow such a thing to happen to a Catholic?

Well her friends and most everyone were quick to claim that the Catholic Lady went straight to heaven to be with God because God needed her....etc.....


I know of no Saint who met a similar tragic end.


Her death was a punishment - it was not a reward - any one with a lick of common sense can see that.

So what did this Catholic lady due to merit such a end?

Maybe she didn't go to Mass in NYC on Sunday?

Maybe she did go to Mass in NYC and received communion like everyone else.

Maybe she unworthily received communion?

Maybe no confession before communion?

She died a horrible death.

Those that  unworthily receive communion will also die a horrible death.

And that's the real danger of someone who receives communion that should not receive.

That's the real issue.

Oh and I'm sure some of you are upset in what I wrote about the Catholic Lady who got sucked out a plane window - because you really don't believe that God really does punish sin here and now.

Now for what the Pope did to avert death and destruction:

Pope blocks German Guidelines allowing Holy Communion for Protestant spouses -

Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Prot. N. 212/2018 - 64727

Vatican City
Palace of the Sant’Uffizio

May 25 2018

To His Most Reverend Eminence
Cardinal Reinhard Marx
Archbishop of Munich and Freising
President of the German Episcopal Conference

Your Eminence, Most Illustrious President!

At the end of our fraternal conversation on May 3, 2018 on the document "Mit Christus gehen…" [“Walking with Christ. On the path of unity. Interconfessional marriages and joint participation in the Eucharist. A pastoral guide from the German episcopal conference"] we determined together that I would inform the Holy Father about the meeting.

Already in our audience of May 11 2018 I spoke with Pope Francis about our meeting and gave him a summary of the conversation. On May 24 2018 I again discussed the question with the Holy Father. Following these meetings I would like to bring to your attention the following points, with the explicit approval of the pope.

1. The multiple ecumenical efforts of the German episcopal conference, in a particular way the intense collaboration with the council of the Evangelical Church of Germany, deserve recognition and appreciation. The joint commemoration of the Reformation in 2017 has shown that in recent years and decades a foundation has been found that allows bearing witness together to Jesus Christ, the savior of all men, and working together in an effective and decisive way in many areas of public life. This encourages us to move forward with trust on the road of an ever deeper unity.

2. Our conversation of May 3 2018 showed that the text of the guide raises a series of problems of noteworthy significance. The Holy Father has therefore reached the conclusion that the document is not ready for publication. The essential reasons for this decision can be summarized as follows:

a. The question of admission to communion for evangelical Christians in interconfessional marriages is an issue that touches on the faith of the Church and has significance for the universal Church.

b. This question has effects on ecumenical relations with other Churches and other ecclesial communities that are not to be underestimated.

c. The issue concerns the law of the Church, above all the interpretation of canon 844 CIC. Since in a few sectors of the Church there are open questions in this regard, the dicasteries of the Holy See concerned have already been instructed to produce a timely clarification of these questions at the level of the universal Church. In particular it appears opportune to leave to the diocesan bishop the judgment on the existence of “grave and urgent necessity.”

3. For the Holy Father it is of great concern that in the German episcopal conference the spirit of episcopal collegiality should remain alive. As Vatican Council II has emphasized, “the Episcopal bodies of today are in a position to render a manifold and fruitful assistance, so that this collegiate feeling may be put into practical application” (Dogmatic Constitution “Lumen Gentium” no. 23).

Bringing this to Your attention, I send You fraternal greetings and wishes of blessing.

Yours in the Lord,

Luis F. Ladaria, S.I.
Titular bishop of Thibica
