Science Tests Faith

Eucharist - Consecration

The video is a little more than an hour long, but sooooooooooo worth watching!

Science Tests Faith [1:05:38]

One of the miracles the speaker discusses in the video is of a consecrated host in Buenos Aires, Argentina, that began to bleed. It begins at 15:30 on the video. In the liquid, scientists found human flesh and blood. This confirms the Catholic teaching that the Body and Blood of Our Lord is present in BOTH the consecrated bread and consecrated wine.

Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior, is wholly present under the appearance either of bread or of wine in the Eucharist. Furthermore, Christ is wholly present in any fragment of the consecrated Host or in any drop of the Precious Blood. Nevertheless, it is especially fitting to receive Christ in both forms during the celebration of the Eucharist. This allows the Eucharist to appear more perfectly as a banquet, a banquet that is a foretaste of the banquet that will be celebrated with Christ at the end of time when the Kingdom of God is established in its fullness (cf. Eucharisticum Mysterium, no. 32).”

No post of any substance today. My beloved child bride and I are going to witness the Winnebago Middle School 7th graders as they gird their loins to do battle this morning. It’s become one of the great joys of my life.

Clarification re: Pope’s announcement about absolution for abortion

Sacrament of Reconciliation - Absolution

CLARIFICATION REGARDING ABSOLUTION OF THE SIN OF ABORTION

I am afraid that publication in the media of the Year of Mercy expansion of the faculty to absolve from the sin of abortion will cause some confusion among those who have repented of this sin and have already been absolved in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Please note that priests in the United States have already had the authority to absolve from this sin in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Because this sin is grave enough to result in an automatic excommunication, canon law normally restricts the lifting of the penalty of an excommunication to the authority of the bishop. But for the singular case of abortion, priests with the faculty to hear confessions in the United States have already had the faculty to absolve from this sin and lift the excommunication.

Therefore, someone who had repented of this sin and received absolution from a priest in the Sacrament of Reconciliation does not need to worry that they were not properly absolved.

Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv.
