Father Richard Bucci, a priest from Rhode Island, has publicly refused to give Holy Communion to politicians who espouse stances contrary to Church teaching on abortion, and published a flier of the names of all such politicians! According to reports:
"A Catholic priest in Rhode Island has decreed that every state legislator who voted last year for an extreme state abortion law may not receive Holy Communion.
"Father Richard Bucci, a 72-year-old parish priest at Sacred Heart Church in West Warwick, made the announcement last week in the form of a flier that he gave to parishioners and also mailed them to the homes of several lawmakers.
" 'In accord with the teaching of the Catholic Church for 2,000 years, the following members of the legislature may NOT receive Holy Communion, as are all the officers of the state of Rhode Island, as well as Rhode Island's members of Congress,' the flier reads." (LifeSiteNews.com)
This is a serious development in the pro-life fight: Fr. Bucci has valiantly gone on the offensive to expose those "Catholics" who perfidiously fight against Church teaching. We must thank Fr. Bucci for taking this courageous step, which could inspire other priests and prelates. Please sign our petition, thanking Fr. Richard Bucci for leading the charge against pro-abortion politicians.
