Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

"No one reacted, he said."

Krejci said that after Bruskewitz put down his vessel of communion wafers, Krejci walked over and took one himself. No one reacted, he said.

What the heck?!?

For those who have been following this story, Mr. Krejci has been publically denied the sacraments by Bishop Bruskewitz in Lincoln, Nebraska for his contined relationship with the "reform" group Call to Action.

That's fine. Bishop Bruskewitz (assuming he has gone through the proper procedures for doing this) is within his rights to do this. In fact, many have applauded him for doing so.

But when this story first broke, the line about Krejci going up and just "helping himself" to Holy Communion shocked every faithful Catholic who read it. Today, this new article has appeared in which new statements from the diocese are quoted -- but nothing is mentioned in regards to this, in fact, now the reporters are saying that not only did Krejci self-communicate, but that "no one reacted" (!!)

Craziness... why did the bishop just leave the communion plate sitting out for Krejci to follow him up and take one from? And why the heck was there "no reaction" to him doing so?
