Archbishop Chaput rebukes Cardinal Gregory on Communion for Biden

December 04, 2020

CWN Editor's Note: “When bishops publicly announce their willingness to give Communion to Mr. Biden, without clearly teaching the gravity of his facilitating the evil of abortion… they do a serious disservice to their brother bishops and their people,” writes Archbishop Charles Chaput in First Things. The retired Archbishop of Philadelphia does not name names, but Cardinal Wilton Gregory of Philadelphia has announced that he will give Communion to Biden.

    PF knew that he could not measure up to Archbishop Chaput and for that reason passed him over and gave red hats and other promotions to mediocre sycophants. The way Archb Chaput was treated is an absolute disgrace.

    This would carry a lot more weight if Archbishop Chaput was’t retired. What do the 33 active American Archbishops, who have a lot of skin in the game, think of Cardinal Gregory’s willingness to give Biden Communion? I guess we will have to wait until they retire to find out.
