Should Bishops of the Catholic Church stand up for their beliefs against abortion or consider the politics of communion with God or mortal men?
The Chicago Tribune – AP – CBS – article titled: Catholic politicians could face rebuke for abortion stand, reported the following two statement?
“”They’re looking for direction,” Hying said.
“The more attention the bishops focus on the Communion question, the more the church will be perceived as being in the political fray, which risks driving some Catholics away,” Campbell said via email.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb, a Bible verse, for interested readers to discern this issue.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; (Proverb 3:5)
33 But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. 34Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.…
Catholic Definition – Communion
In Christian parlance the most sacred expression for any one of different forms of togetherness. As communion between God and the human soul in the divine indwelling; between Christ and the recipient of the Eucharist in Holy Communion; among all who belong to the Mystical Body in heaven, purgatory, and on earth in the Communion of Saints; and among those who belong to the Catholic Church as a communion of the faithful.
What’s My Point?
If we consider the core reasoning for abortions between single of married women, we will understand that only 18 percent of abortions are sought by married women compared to single woman.
The core teachings of the Catholic Church are to promote and strengthen family and communities Sadly, we mortals have come to believe that Rights.
My point is over time we mortals believe we have awakened by philosophers during the ‘Great Awakening’ to understand that human Rights, politics, and premarital sex supersede the core religious beliefs of marriage and family.
If we consider the Catholic definition of Communion, if we are not in communion with our beliefs, the sacrament is not meaningful that we are in communion with the Church past and present core beliefs of Saints or faithful leaders of the Church…
In My Opinion
Bishops’ roles are not the same as politicians. They are leaders of the Church and their roles are to provide directions of faith for the followers of their Church laws and precepts.
Yet knowing that all mortals are not perfect, but how can they ever strive for perfection of the souls if their leaders are more concerned with politics of man instead of trust in “God?
President Biden is a politician, not a faithful Bishop.
Should Bishops provide direction for their followers to follow the path of wisdom and love in the Bible or worry like politicians that they will win or lose the next election.
Is it wise of foolish for Catholic Bishops to consider whether Communion is a sacrament of God or of politicians?
