Honduran Cardinal Retracts Time Magazine Statement

Cardinal Oscar Maradiaga has retracted his statement to Time magazine where he expressed reluctance to deny communion to pro-abortion politicians. Christine Schult has the scoop.

Last year, at the multi-cultural Eucharistic Congress for the Diocese of Rockville Centre, I stood with my children in the rain outside the church where the Cardinal gave a great homily about Our Lady and the Blessed Sacrament. I was only a few feet away from the Cardinal, peering in the side door, and was impressed with his faithfulness to Church teaching, so naturally, I am delighted that he reconsidered his remarks in the light of Worthiness to Recieve Communion.

Bravo, Cardinal Rodriguez!
