The "Fruits" of Amoris Laetitia: Bishops Now Treat the Eucharist as Just a Bit of Malt-a-Meal

I used to crack a terrible pun that at once exposed my age and my lack of humor: that no matter what you ate while in Malta, it was always a "Malt-a-Meal". Yes, it hurt my fingers to even type that.

Now, my horrific pun is reality, or at least what the Maltese bishops--FOLLOWING THE MOST OBVIOUS READING of the Exhortation of Desolation-- want you to believe. Jesus didn't mean what He said about marriage, divorce and adultery. And if He didn't mean that, then did He really mean it when He said, "This is My Body; this is My Blood"?

Holy Communion is now just Malta-Meal: feel-good glop for those with the spiritually immature, doled out by priests and bishops who don't see anything special about it either.

This is a disaster, and at the very least it is recklessly fostered by the Pope himself. But really, is there anyone who doesn't think this confusion isn't the entire, planned outcome of Amoris Laetitia? If it isn't planned, why won't the Vicar of Christ step in to definitively correct this situation.

Answer the dubia, Your Holiness. 

Or step down.

This situation needs to end. Yesterday.

The epitomy of arrogance-- do what I tell you, Your Holiness.-- or else.

Calm down, Sam -- I think there was an implied "pretty please" in there. And let's face it, at this point any "trad" who is willing to speak to Francis as though Francis gives a hoot, deserves points for demonstrating faith, hope and charity.

Well done, Timman.

Cardinal Burke celebrated a wonderful Pontifical Mass Sat am.at Our Lady of Victories Church under the highway in St. Louis. The readings were right on......SFDS Church was highly represented in the congregation and the choir. Go back to Sat Jan 14 and read the Epistle and Gospel... so appropriate for these times

They did it because they're "fruit loops."
