English Card. McCarrick vs. Card. Arinze
Sept 18, 2004
You may remember that in April, Cardinal Arinze, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of Sacraments issued at the Pope's request an Eucharistic instruction, "Redemptionis Sacramentum.' He warned that manifest persons who are 'unambiguously pro-abortion" must be refused Communion.

(The Wanderer, 6 July 2004) Cardinal McCarrick within hours of the released instruction contradicted Arinze's and the Pope's teaching, saying, "I have not gotten to the stage where I'm comfortable denying the Eucharist."

Shortly afterward, we remember the poignant ad by American Life League, asking Cardinal McCarrick if he was "comfortable now."
