Sin + Obstinate + Manifest + Public = Excommunication

"Certain particularly grave sins incur excommunication, the most severe ecclesiastical penalty, which impedes the reception of the sacraments and the exercise of certain ecclesiastical acts, and for which absolution consequently cannot be granted, according to canon law, except by the Pope, the bishop of the place or priests authorized by them. In danger of death any priest, even if deprived of faculties for hearing confessions, can absolve from every sin and excommunication. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 1463.)

I wonder what St. Ambrose would have done with someone like that?

How much Catholic doctrine can one deny and still consider themselves to be a Catholic? Wouldn't it be much easier to be an Episcopalian?

I wonder what the true intentions of such politians are who seem to be so diametrically opposed to Church teaching. Could some of these people be Manchurian Candidates who intentionally sow dissent and scandle to confuse the faithful?

May God have mercy on her soul. And on mine, for detesting her.

Thank you for visiting.
