Archbishop refuses to give communion to GMA, first family
« on: March 29, 2008, 03:29:14 am »
Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz vowed yesterday not to give holy communion to President Arroyo, members of her family, and other known “sinners” in the country.

Cruz told the Newsmakers Forum held every Wednesday at the Crowne Plaza in Mandaluyong City that he will encourage the Catholic Church leadership, specifically the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), not to allow any publicly known sinners like Mrs. Arroyo and members of the First Family to receive communion.

“A publicly known sinner and a good number of them receiving communion in public, I think it is a scandal. I would not give communion to people whom I know as a public sinner. No,” Cruz said when asked if he will give communion to the Arroyos.

Cruz said it pains him very much to see Mrs. Arroyo and the other publicly known sinners ostensibly going to Church every time the Arroyo government is being dragged in controversy, and receiving communion in public.

“In our moral theology, that is a principle. If one gives communion to sinners the Church is scandalized,” Cruz said.

Cruz also admitted that the CBCP is divided over the clamor for Mrs. Arroyo to resign because of monetary considerations.

He said at least eight bishops, including himself, are calling for Mrs. Arroyo to resign because they believe that the Arroyo government has no moral ascendancy to govern because of the rampant corruption involving ranking government officials.

Cruz said that there are also seven bishops who are supporting Mrs. Arroyo, while the majority of the 92 bishops nationwide are neutral.

He said the call of the CBCP for Mrs. Arroyo to allow Commission on Higher Education chairman Romulo Neri to testify before the Senate, abolish Executive Order 464 and to allow the other officials who have knowledge about the national broadband network (NBN) deal to reveal what they know about the scandal, can still change.

“The CBCP’s pronouncement is stagnant and static in terms of socio-economic issues. It can change. How could you just remain silent, quiet and stand still after you say the government is morally corrupt and morally bankrupt? It is not a political but a moral duty of the priests. I looked at that as a moral dimension. Once the politicians are already above the Ten Commandments, I will keep quiet. If politicians are exempted from the Ten Commandments, I will keep quiet. But if politicians are still bound by the Ten Commandments, I will continue to speak. The Church is the soul of the nation,” Cruz said.

Cruz said God is always in favor of those who follow the Ten Commandments.

this is nothing but bs.
God knows what I'm talking about!

What a shame! What about those priest who abused kids, did they do something about them, I don't think so. All they do is transfer the priest to another area and that's about it.

That's why I don't like to read or see Church who's trying to get involve with politics.

Although, I didn't say, P.GMA is not a sinner, we all are! So what's with the fuzz?

I am not happy with this either. These priests are not involved in the investigation.  All they know is what is talked about by the media and for them to ex-communicate the whole family, they are judging.  It is not their job to render verdict of cases like this.   

I will always be a Catholic no matter what but I still don't agree with this decision.  They should start now investigating their parishioners who are committing adultery or pre-marital sex and other sinful acts if they are really serious in their conviction of eliminating sinners among Catholics.

This is where we see the separation of Religion and Jesus Christ himself.

Religion wants to kill by stoning an adulterous woman.
Jesus Christ: "He who is without sin may cast the first stone."

And all the hypocrites walked away, shaking their heads.

I'm not a pro GMA, but i think it's not the proper forum for archbishop Cruz to air his sintements towards GMA. matters involving church and state should be done in right manner, respect to everyone especially to the head of state should be taken care of.

His Eminence, Archbishop Cruz needs to separate himself from the state.

Who are we to judge who is a sinner and not, but the Almighty. President Arroyo and her family attend church for their own reasons, either it be for personal reasons or as a way to escape public attacks. She comes to church to worship and visit the Lord, let her. And God Bless her for the things she goes through.

His Eminence, Archbishop Cruz needs to remember this scripture,
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
-Romans 8:38-39


Leave politics for the politicians, and religion for the priests.
The role of the priest is to minister to the soul of the faithful, to give rights, and to preach the gospel,
NOT to instigate politics.

"Publicly known sinner"?! Was he saying, as long as you're discreet it's okay to sin and receive the body of Christ?! IMO, his views were morally skewed. This is one reason why I don't go to confessions anymore. I might as well talk to God myself. but, I am and will always be a Catholic.

I disagree with his views, as well, as a devout Roman Catholic, I must say that he goes against church teachings, which are the teachings of Christ and the Apostles.

My pastor, who I can say is my close confidant has always told me this:
"Forgive those who hurt you, Bless those who harm you, and try your best your utmost best to turn the other cheek. Show mercy and you shall be given mercy, show compassion and you shall be given compassion."

We are all sinners, no one is exempt, not even Bishop Cruz.

The Archbishop is just doing the right thing.If there is ignorance, instruct the ignorant. If there is obstinacy, exact the canonical
penalty. To fail to do so results not only in ignorance and obstinacy, but negligence and
permissiveness: the fertile soil in which a degenerating culture can multiply its errors,
bear evil fruit, and die. Religious leaders are in a unique position to influence the nation
and the world for the better by calling their people to high moral standards. Failure to do
so ultimately results in disaster, for the moral demise of a nation always precedes the
ultimate demise of a nation.The version of separation
of church and state that is presently being foisted on an unsuspecting public is tantamount
to a suppression of the fundamental constitutional rights of a class of citizens. Since when
is Christian thought not permitted to influence a country that was founded on Christian
principles? We share in the good and the evil of those we place in office. The Catechism
of the Catholic Church teaches that, although “sin is a personal act, we have a
responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them” (CCC
#1868). We can be accomplices in the sins of others:
By participating directly and voluntarily in them;
By ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
By not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
Any candidate for political office, Catholic or otherwise, who is in favor of intrinsically
evil things (abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, etc), votes for them, or otherwise
funds or furthers their cause, cannot be supported in any way by a Catholic who wishes to
remain Catholic in fact, not just in name. Catholic office holders, whether presidents,
senators, congress men or women, or judges at any level must adhere to Catholic teaching
or run the risk of separating themselves from the Body of Christ. In such egregious and
chronic cases of gross moral evil such as instituting and perpetuating abortion and the
structures of sin that surround it, it is quite probable that such Catholic officials are
excommunicated in virtue of the acts themselves. A latae sententiae (automatic)
excommunication is likely triggered when they vote for laws, funding, and structures that
enable and perpetuate such obvious and egregious evil (Cf. Code of Canon Law, Canons
1364,1398; Canon 1329, par. #2). They are in turn forbidden from approaching the
sacraments as the result (Cf. Catechism of Catholic Church #1463).

The corruption in our country does not point to GMA alone.

If we review our Bohol news section, we read a kagawad in Carmen who admitted before Capitol's investigation team that he used up Bohol's poverty program fund to finance his election campaign last May. Did GMA instruct the Carmen, Bohol kagawad to do that?

The corruption is already widespread. Many barangay captains and kagawads are corrupt, too. Should they be denied communion too?

Knowledge of theology does not make one special in the eyes of God. The cardinals and bishops who were accused of pedophile (child molestation) are holders of Ph.D. in Divinity.

Romans 3:23: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

Romans 3:12: "They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." (King James Version).

The Prophet Isaiah, after seeing the glory and holiness of God:

Isaiah 6:1-10 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because I [am] a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Even the prophet Isaiah did not claim of being "holier than you" mentality.

Raquel,

This post is very educational and I agree with it for the most part, in terms of moral responsibility. I do not doubt the truth and correctness of Catholic teachings, pero I have a problem in how Archbishop Cruz directed his judgment to President Arroyo and her family, especially in the manner that he publicized it. It is evident that there is a clear political agenda, as to pressure her until she gives in, so that she can partake of the blessed Eucharist, the Body and Blood of the Lord, Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Redeemer.

You cannot sell the body of Christ for political amnesty, political favors, or the change of policy, that is a total abomination of church teachings. You see, it would be different if Archbishop contacted Arroyo and her family personally and secretly and told her, but it is different when one goes public and announces this. For who can separate us from the Love of Our Christ? No One! Not angels, not heirarchs, seraphims, cherubim, not the storms, natural ailments, not kings, emperors, not even the Devil (May the Almight Father Rebuke Him!) or his legions of demons who prowl the earth for lost souls! No One! Christ Came for those who have sinned, for those who have malicious hearts, for the unbelievers! Remember the parable of the Prodigal Son that Christ Jesus told his desciples? It illustrates the TOTAL and ABSOLUTE Love of our Father in Heaven!
"Then the father said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found."
Luke 15:11-3
The eucharist is there for us. What about myself, yourself, and all the faithful? Are we not sinners before the eyes of God?

Did His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI even deny his own iniquities? No, he admits to his own iniquities, and the heir of Blessed Peter the Apostle even tells us to show mercy to those of a different faith; per se our muslim brothers and sisters. So why does His Eminence Bishop Cruz say this? I mean this in no disrespect to His Eminence, but merely questioning his motives and his judgment.

It is good to contemplate on a specific scripture in reference to this.
Read Romans Chapter 5 verses 12 to 17:

"Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned-sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law.Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.And the free gift is not like the effect of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brings justification.If, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ."


Thank You Raquel for sharing that information, and thank you for sharing your view point. Amen!

The corruption in our country does not point to GMA alone.

If we review our Bohol news section, we read a kagawad in Carmen who admitted before Capitol's investigation team that he used up Bohol's poverty program fund to finance his election campaign last May. Did GMA instruct the Carmen, Bohol kagawad to do that?

The corruption is already widespread. Many barangay captains and kagawads are corrupt, too. Should they be denied communion too?

Knowledge of theology does not make one special in the eyes of God. The cardinals and bishops who were accused of pedophile (child molestation) are holders of Ph.D. in Divinity.

Romans 3:23: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

Romans 3:12: "They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." (King James Version).

The Prophet Isaiah, after seeing the glory and holiness of God:

Isaiah 6:1-10 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because I [am] a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Even the prophet Isaiah did not claim of being "holier than you" mentality.





Yeheeey!

very well said!

nalaktasan naho nih!

From the Gospel of Jesus Christ (King James Version). Reality Check for the Archbishop.

Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, "God, I thank You that I am not like other men - extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess."

And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, "God, be merciful to me a sinner!"

(Jesus said:) I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Honestly, I couldn't care less about this.

If a person's heart is as black as coal, and as evil as can be, bisan pa usa ka kilo nga osteyas, dili na matabang. Bisan pa moinom ug usa ka litrong holy water, wala gihapon effect.
