Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of the Archdiocese of Kansas City of Kansas has asked and met with the Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius requesting that she no longer partake in the sacred act of communion. The eating of a wafer and the drinking of grape wine [representative of Jesus’ Blood].
You see only the pure absent of sin living their lives in holiness as of the Bible, should ever participate in communion – the holiest of all acts. In that case, not the Archbishop or anyone else for that fact, should raise their hands nor rise to their feet – just don’t get in line.
But whatever holiness and goodness that Governor Sebelius was living it was pretty much cast aside after her April 21st Veto of the Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act passed by the Kansas legislature.
The Archbishop wrote
Since becoming archbishop, I have met with Governor Sebelius several times over many months to discuss with her the grave spiritual and moral consequences of her public actions by which she has cooperated in the procurement of abortions performed in Kansas…. I wrote the governor last August requesting that she refrain from presenting herself for reception of the Eucharist until she had acknowledged the error of her past positions, made a worthy sacramental confession and taken the necessary steps for amendment of her life which would include a public repudiation of her previous efforts and actions in support of laws and policies sanctioning abortion.
Recently, it came to my attention that the governor had received holy Communion at one of our parishes. I have written to her again, asking her to respect my previous request and not require from me any additional pastoral actions.
I must be honest the only thing I can think are these 2 words — Vomit and Regurgitate.
Oh where Oh where is my Separation between Church and State?!
