VATICAN, April 23, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Today at a press conference in the Holy See Press Office, Cardinal Francis Arinze, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of Sacraments, presented a new Vatican document aimed at stemming abuses connected to the reception of Holy Communion entitled "Redemptionis Sacramentum."
Meanwhile, Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley of Boston, who permitted John Kerry to receive communion in his diocese over Easter, chickens out by saying this is something that needs to be "handled privately" and "not something where you would make any kind of public action or public statement to withhold communion" (as reported in the Washington Post).
. . . and European bishops regarding the "Kerry communion" drama . . . well . . . simply don't care . . . (thanks to Benjamin).
