Re: If So?
Question from Anonymous on 5/13/2019:

Hello again Judy:

in one of your replies, you said former Cardinal MaCarrick withheld a letter authored by Pope Benedict XVI (now Emiritus) to American Bishops allowing them to withhold Holy Communion to anti- life public officials? IF true, and if you have a copy of the letter, putting it out there may start the solution of fixing or weeding out another problem in the Church???

It appears clear now that any political party that adheres to an anti-life stance, such as the Democratic Party is doing today (pray that they change), can in no way be endorsed by the Catholic Church. In many ways they are like the Nazi Party.

For sure they are endorsing evil continually and it appears want more and more evil and power.

The 2004 letter that Cardinal Ratzinger wrote to the American Bishops has been on line ever since we got a copy of it and you can find it here:

The "Catholic Church" does not endorse political parties, but surely many prelates and ordained priests do by their actions. The devil is running wild, but as the Catechism teaches

675 Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
