"But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
For I neither received it of man, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." (Galatians 1:8-9)

Lifesite - One of America’s top liberal bishops is ramping up his attacks on Catholic teaching and tradition, insisting that homosexuals and remarried couples in “objectively grave sin” be allowed to receive the Eucharist and that women be admitted to the diaconate.
In a lengthy essay Tuesday in America Magazine, the heterodox publication of the Jesuits of the United States, Cardinal Robert McElroy of San Diego took aim at Church teaching on various subjects, including conscience, sexual ethics, and intrinsic evil. The essay reads like a call to action for left-wing U.S. Catholics, urging the removal of “structures and cultures of exclusion” in the Church as part of Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality. The reform McElroy imagines “will require a long pilgrimage of sustained prayer, reflection, dialogue and action—all of which should begin now,” he wrote.
This is just the latest attack on the faith by McElroy, a favorite of the pope and a rising star in the liberal Catholic world who has repeatedly undermined Catholic teaching. He called for a “transformation” of the Church through the Synod and changes to “reformable Church doctrine” in a similar article for America last year. In his essay Tuesday, McElroy demanded that “the [C]hurch must embrace a eucharistic theology that effectively invites all of the baptized to the table of the Lord, rather than a theology of eucharistic coherence that multiplies barriers to the grace and gift of the [E]ucharist.”
McElroy explained that his idea of “eucharistic theology” includes allowing people in “objectively grave sin,” particularly homosexuals and illicitly remarried couples, to receive Communion without repentance and chastity. (Full story)
