A Shift in the Tide?

By Charlie Johnston

Despite efforts to get the Vatican to shut it down – and then efforts to allow unlimited discussion to filibuster the idea, the American Catholic Bishops voted overwhelmingly last week to go forward preparing a document on Eucharistic coherence. The issue now goes to committee to be drafted for full consideration by all the Bishops at their annual conference this November. It will have plenty of hurdles. The final product will have to be voted on by all the Bishops. But going forward passed by a vote of 168-55, a 75% landslide.

This is a huge deal. No, it doesn’t mean that all is smooth sailing from here on out or that the orthodox position will regularly prevail. What it DOES mean is that the orthodox Bishops in America have found their voice and confidence. The heterodox caucus, led by Chicago’s Cdl. Blase Cupich, did everything in their power to strangle this in the cradle. This is after years of Cupich helpfully bullying and telling America’s Bishops that he speaks for the Pope. The Bishops of the USCCB have clearly decided that if the Pope wants to take a heterodox position, he can speak for himself. Mistakes may come, but no one with a mitre is going to be browbeaten into quietly keeping their head down when they get the bum’s rush, anymore. The magnificent Dr. Robert Royal, editor-in-chief of The Catholic Thing, rightly calls this an American Catholic Rubicon. His beautiful final paragraph almost brings me to tears:
Our American bishops have done something brave, even beautiful. And they will face turbulent and ugly days because of it. They didn’t start this fight, and some – who were not responsible for the poor catechesis we’ve suffered with for decades – will pay the price for others who were lax or reluctant to speak out. But they’ve faced a defining moment square on. Win or lose in the political arena, they deserve our respect and gratitude.”

I am deeply heartened and unabashedly proud of our American Bishops in this glorious moment. May they ever recall the Lorica of St. Patrick as they remain focused on what they truly are called to be: Apostles of the Living Christ.


With their usual ignorance, officials on the left and the idiot media are trying to explain Catholicism to the Bishops without benefit of any knowledge of Catholic doctrine. The last movie I can recall seeing that had images of active Mass that did not get big things wrong was 1973’s The Exorcist. I know the left hates us, but one would think they would at least try to get some idea of what they are talking about when they attack us.

These anti-God leftist clowns have two contradictory stereotypes of what Catholics must do – whose use they vary depending on which is most convenient to their narrative. In the first errant belief, they attribute unlimited authority to the Pope and Bishops over all aspects of our lives. Wrong. No matter what the Pope or my Bishop think about what kind of car I must get, it is none of their business (even though the Pope seems quite enthused about coal-powered cars, otherwise known as electric cars). Simultaneously the leftists think Catholics reserve the right to disagree publicly with the Church on fundamental, defined doctrine and still remain Catholic. Wrong again. Catholics can, with deep respect, giving full weight to what is taught after STUDYING it and the logic behind it, dissent from even some Magisterial teaching that is not defined. However, no Catholic can publicly attack fundamental defined teaching and remain Catholic. To do so is to publicly excommunicate oneself, regardless of how many Rosaries one carries for photo ops. Daniel J. Bonagura, Jr. has a nice piece at the Catholic Thing that is a basic primer on the extent of – and limitations – of the Church’s authority over Catholic’s lives. It won’t make one an expert, but if leftists would read it before launching their bromides, at least they would not make such obvious mistakes, working from ludicrously false premises.


The media and leftist officials are trying to make this a dispute over whether Joe Biden and other Catholic officials who publicly attack defined doctrinal issues can be denied communion. There are so many things wrong with this framing, it is hard to know where to start.

First, it is not the duty of a Priest or Bishop to determine worthiness to receive, except where there is public scandal attached. It is the duty of the would-be communicant to refrain from receiving if he is in a state of mortal sin. Despite the vast, accumulated knowledge of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, St. Paul knows a bit more about the subject than they do. And St. Paul says that anyone who knowingly receives while in a state of mortal sin profanes the body of the Lord and condemns himself. The charitable thing for a Priest who knew of an unconfessed mortal sin of someone who sought to receive would be to get him aside later and explain that if he continues to do this, he condemns himself to hell.

When someone publicly attacks fundamental defined Catholic doctrine, they are functionally excommunicant…and if the Priest or Bishop knows about it and allows them to receive anyway, then the cleric is also guilty of the blood of the Lord, while openly encouraging public scandal and diluting the doctrinal foundation of the Church. Catholics believe that, at the moment of consecration, the host becomes the true Body and Blood of the Lord, while retaining the species of bread and wine. To intentionally profane Him is to be damned. The very reason for the Hierarchy is to guide people away from such a horrible end, not to assure them they are okay just as they are, even as they are plunging into the inferno.

The frantic efforts of those who think they are preserving unity by denying the truths of the faith are damning those caught in their snares – and themselves – to hell if they do not repent. Of course, if you don’t really believe in God or hell and think receiving is a useful way of conning the folksies, you don’t much care anyway. But it has stunned me these last few decades to see so many prelates willing to sacrifice their own eternal lives to avoid any blowback in this world.


What serious Christian can fail to be inspired by the example of Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski, who defied authorities’ commands that he shut down Christian worship? Now he faces four years in prison and millions in fines for the crime of holding Easter worship services in Calgary, Canada.

Pawlowski was born in Poland. He knows about Communism and authoritarianism – and he is not about to buckle down to it in North America. May God be with him and with all of us as he tours the United States while out on bail, awaiting his trial.

From left, Elizabeth Graham, Jim Graham, Bishop Rene Gracida, and Charlie Johnston – on the occasion of Bp. Gracida’s 98th birthday

At the beginning of the month, I had to be in Texas, and joined Jim and Elizabeth Graham for dinner at Bishop Rene Gracida’s home on the occasion of his 98th birthday. The Grahams, of course, are the guiding lights of Texas Right to Life, the strongest most effective pro-life organization in the world. I love Bishop Gracida’s home, in part, because the knocker on his front door is a metal squirrel. Gotta love it!

He began the evening with a half-hour exorcism prayer in his chapel by Pope Leo XIII that is reserved to Bishops. CORAC was included by me in the intentions for this one. One of the things that has struck me over the years is that, though he often writes in thundering tones, Bishop Gracida has a tender, servant’s heart that he wears on his sleeve in private. He spends a long time pondering how best to draw people back to the safety that is in Christ. Yes, we disagree on a few things here and there, but I am so glad he is my brother in Christ – and my friend. I was delighted when I saw that The Catholic Monitor awarded Gracida this year’s Winston Churchill Award.

I got to wondering this last week whether Bp. Gracida might be the oldest living Bishop in the world – and did some checking. He is currently the ninth oldest Bishop in the world, but the oldest living Bishop in the United States. Boy, are we going to have a blowout celebration when he hits the top of the charts!


All are Welcome!

This weekend we will celebrate together at our first annual CORAC Conference in the Black Hills of South Dakota. All are welcome! There’s still time to make a last-minute reservation if you have not signed up yet – and find you will have the weekend open. We have one heck of a line-up of speakers and events, as you can see from the link. One last-minute change is that David Daleiden will speak at 7 p.m. on Friday and Desmond Birch will speak at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Daleiden will be there all day Friday (and he is looking forward to networking with our CORAC crowd), but he will have to go back to California on Saturday morning. I hope to see you there, where we will break bread and reason together.

Donate to CORAC!

  2. The outrageous betrayal by Canada of religious rights and human dignity in its treatment of Pawlowski demonstrates what the Left is really about. Has any legal defense funding been arranged for Pastors Pawlowski and Stephens?

    Is it conceivable that the Pope would take action against the American Bishops that would lead to a formal separation between Rome and America?

    1. In regard to your question in the last paragraph, no, Jack. The authentic Catholic Church is one – and our internal battles cannot disintegrate our fundamental internal unity into competing regional Catholic Churches. Abraham Lincoln once said that a house divided against itself cannot stand (a line he borrowed from our founder)…that it must become all one thing or all another. So it is with the Catholic Church: it must fundamentally become all orthodox or all heterodox. If it became all heterodox, that would mean Christ’s promise would fail, which is not possible. So the question is not whether regions will separate from each other – though some may try, but who will remain united with the ancient doctrine of Christ and the Apostles. Wherever that is, there is the Church, one, holy, and apostolic.

      1. Christ also said that one judges a tree by its fruits. If the fruits are confusion which leads to large scale, egregious sin on the part of the people professing to be Catholic, then why could there not be a reorganization of the Catholic Church based on acceptance and proclamation of fundamental, traditional teachings? I imagine that the Catholic Church is really a faithful group of people and not a place in Rome. Unlike the the United States, the Catholic Church transcends country. If the smoke of the satan has seized the majority of cardinals in the Vatican, and if the pope is truly “on fire” then when is the time to cut out the arm or the eye that accepts what the Church previously deemed grave sin?

        I am sure that a lot of Catholics are asking this question.

        1. Christ gave us the structure of the hierarchy and throughout the ages “the great cloud of witnesses” who have gone before us, have contended in their respective eras with corruption in the Church without taking down the entire hierarchy. Now, the Saints – along with the Angels – stand ready for us to call on them to intercede for us in this great trial upon us. Charlie, in one of his talks concerning the problematic prelates of the Church, did not say the majority of them are given over to destroying the Church. Rather, it is a “substantial minority.” It IS a serious, grave mess. All that said, God must lead us in the direction He wills the renewal and reform of the Church to go.

    2. Rebel news is crowdfunding to raise money for the legal fees of Pastor Pawlowski;

      Under the Trudeau goverment, Canada has moved to open persecution of Christian churches. It was more subtle at the beginning, not subsidizing youth employment jobs for organizations that didn’t support abortion and LGBT agendas, so only summer camps run by Christians were impacted. Now with the pandemic, it has raised it to a higher level, banning worship for health reasons, while allowing large gatherings for non-religious reasons (even allowing cinemas to be open in some cases, while churches had to be closed). This past week, 2 churches were burned down in British Columbia, this after Trudeau has openly demanded for the pope to apologize for the horrible things that happened to indigenous children at the residential schools (many of which were run by the Catholic church). Trudeau professes to be Catholic/Christian of course, but it’s pretty clear with what is happening to Pastor Arthur Pawlowski, that the leftist entrenched goverment is moving to the next level of persecution
      Today, June 22, also happens to be the 1st day of a novena to St.Joseph, patron saint of Canada, so please pray for us!

      2. Please pardon the typo’s.. they are within the article and beyond my control. Joan Veon (R.I.P.) was an investigative reporter before this title was well known. Her focus was United Nations and she had access to many within. She asked ‘out of wallet’ questions decifering the truth. One of her positions is shown below.

        “The Commonwealth today has 53 sovereign states with Queen Elizabeth II as head of the Commonwealth. The Queen�s position is recognized by each state and as such is the symbol of the free association of the organization�s members. The 16 members where the queen is head of state are called Commonwealth Realms. Decolonization started in 1931 with Canada, South Africa and Australia; in the 1940s: India, New Zealand, and Sir Lanka; in the 1950s: Ghana and Malaysia; In the 1960s: twenty more: Barbados, Botswana, Cyprus, Gambia, Guyana, Jamaica, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Malta, Mauritius, Nauru, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Swaziland, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda and Zambia. During the 1970s, nine more: the Bahamas, Bangladesh, Dominica, Fiji, Grenada, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Samoa, Seychelles, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu. During the 1980s, seven more: Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Brunei, Maldives, Pakistan, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Vanuatu and in the 1990s, three more: Cameroon, Mozambique and Namibia.

        As each country obtained independence, they received a vote at the United Nations. Therefore, the Commonwealth has the potential of 54 votes at the United Nations. Throughout the entire international structure, the United States is OUTVOTED by the Commonwealth. In the Group of Eight, Canada and the United Kingdom outvote the U.S. While the U.S. has 50 states, we only receive one vote at the United Nations! Furthermore in this hemisphere there are 13 Commonwealth countries that swear allegiance to the queen.”

It seems both our countries are China. Here’s an article that I saved from the Philadelphia Inquirer dated 03/14/2000 on the occasion of Cardinal Ignatius Kung’s death.

  4. Good to see more Bishops becoming empowered to stand up for what is right and true. I have some questions regarding this issue. When a priest is aware of someone who is openly pro-abortion would he be contributing to their sin by giving them Holy Communion? Therefore, wouldn’t it be better for him to withhold communion and give them a blessing instead?

  6. Bishop Gracida is a living marvel! However, I do not see why the USCCB needs a document because there is already Canon 915. If they would just follow Church teachings, there need be no discussion. It is already doctrine that grave public sinners should not receive Holy Communion.

    1. The proposed document aims broader than Canon 915. A large majority of Catholics have no idea of the Real Presence–which is problematic in itself, but also why so few see that there exists such concepts as “worthy” and “unworthy” reception thereof.

  7. Hope springs eternal, but does anyone truly believe the USCCB is going to ban Biden, Pelosi, or anyone from receiving our Lord? Not going to happen, unfortunately. O’Malley stated it on his blog
    “Then, of course, a number of documents were considered, including the document on the Eucharist, which is the one that has certainly gotten the most attention.

    There are many opinions as to what the document should encompass. I think, early on, there were some who envisioned the document as dealing with public figures and the reception of the Eucharist. However, in light of the instructions from the Holy See, the Committee on Doctrine has adjusted it to avoid focusing on categories of individuals but trying to develop a theological document around the Eucharist and the question of preparedness and Eucharistic consistency.” http://cardinalseansblog.org/

    The letter from the Vatican apparently did change the tide and the reason 3/4s signed on is because they’re not going to confront anyone, just “teach” more about the Eucharist.

    Church Militant has some news on it as well that they’ll be reporting this evening, apparently:

      1. I think, HTTP, the confrontation has already been there and is building in intensity. Belief in Jesus’ true Presence in the Eucharist has been waning among Catholics for years. Both St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict gave direction for addressing the problem of politicians and other public figures supporting issues of the culture of death and continuing to receive the Eucharist.

        John Paul II’s words ring true once again. When he spoke at an Eucharistic Conference in our country in 1976, he was then Cardinal Wojtyla and said: “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but, in a sense, a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations.” And here we are.

After 50 parents, the Board shut them down and called security to remove the parents. One parent lamented to the sheriffs that they were not protecting their rights. So sad to see the sheriffs handcuff and tackle upset parents.

It is interesting to note that St. John the Baptist’s birthday comes just as the days are starting to get shorter (in the Northern Hemisphere), whereas Christ’s birthday comes just as they are starting to get longer: “He must increase, I must decrease” (John 3:30).”
