Fr. Marcel Guarnizo: Another One Bites the Dust!

The persecution goes on. This time against a priest serving the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, who denied Communion to a lesbian activist who used her mother's funeral to set him up. Here are a series of articles on my Les Femmes site. If you want to see what happened read them in order. As the story unfolded, it became more and more obvious that there was more to the story than meets the eye. It also shows how eager the mainstream media are to jump on the bandwagon without doing a single bit of research to find out "the rest of the story":

    Eucharist is not to be given to the Quaker, Lutheran, and Buddhist since they are outside the Church
    If a Quaker, a Lutheran or a Buddhist, desiring communion had introduced himself as such, before Mass, a priest would be obligated to withhold communion. If someone had shown up in my sacristy drunk, or high on drugs, no communion would have been possible either. If a Catholic, divorced and remarried (without an annulment) would make that known in my sacristy, they too according to Catholic doctrine, would be impeded from receiving communion. This has nothing to do with canon 915. Ms. Johnson’s circumstances are precisely one of those relations which impede her access to communion according to Catholic teaching. Ms. Johnson was a guest in our parish, not the arbitrer of how sacraments are dispensed in the Catholic Church.- Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, Archdiocese of Washington D.C

    Canonist Peters thinks Fr.Guarnizo was wrong in witholding the Eucharist to the Barbara Johnson.


    Edward Peters errs in assuming that the outward action does not indicate the internal thoughts or motivation. This is the moral theology of Fr.Bernard Haring and Fr.Charles Curran.
    Homosexuality and lesbianism will always be a mortal sin.It is grave matter and the woman has admitted it in this case.She persists in receiving the Eucharist and still persists in the sin.
