UPDATE: It seems that CNA got out over its skis in reporting that something that was never scheduled in the first place was “nixed”.
Agencies could do better.
CNA reports that Biden’s attendance at early morning Mass on 15 June with Francis has been nixed.
Consider what it would have meant were Francis to have given Communion to Biden. Consider Biden going forward and Francis refusing. Consider Biden not going forward.
All that is avoided. This on the eve of a meeting of the USCCB.
What this suggests to me is a signal from Rome to the Bishops of these USA to, yes, discuss “Eucharistic coherence”.
Moderation is on.
