PRIEST BANS TD FROM DISTRIBUTING HOLY COMMUNION
News that a Dublin priest Fr. Peter O'Reilly, co-parish priest of Lucan, has told Derek Keating TD that he can no longer function as a Minister of Holy Communion and that the Parish Hall is no longer available to him to use for his consultations with his constituents is to be applauded. One should not be able to publically vote for or participate in an intrinsic evil and continue in a public role in the Church. Now the Archbishop needs to show his backbone and support this clergyman and others who have the courage to tell those TDs who voted for the Taoiseach's pro-abortion law that they cannot minister in the Church and should stay away from Holy Communion until they publically repent of this evil. From what I've heard no clergy in Dublin are holding their breaths.
