Cardinal Burke, No Holy Communion Without Catholic Faith

You know that, Your Eminence, I know that, and any decently catechised Catholic knows that. It is the immemorial teaching of the Church of Christ, enshrined in Canon Law. But what difference does it make? It's standing in the way of Francis' plans to destroy the Church, so it will be ignored!

Holy Communion may not be administered to non-Catholics, Cardinal Raymond Burke wrote to LifeSiteNews.com (June 28).

Burke stated that “sentimental considerations” are no basis for receiving Communion because "receiving Holy Communion means that you accept all that the Catholic Church teaches.”

Burke, who until 2014 led the Church High Court, called for a revision of the fuzzy canon 844 in Church Law.

This canon allows intercommunion in emergency situations like imminent death, “In such a case, once the emergency has passed, the question is why has the person not entered into the full communion of the Catholic Church.”

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
