Nigerian cardinal stresses danger of unworthy Communion

CWN Editor's Note: Priests have a duty to remind Catholics that they must not receive Communion unworthily, Cardinal John Onaiyekan said in an address to the International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest.

Cardinal Oneiykan said that a politician who supports an immoral law, such as one legalizing abortion, “should do well to avoid deliberately provoking controversy around the Holy Eucharist.”
