Bishop Thomas Paprocki felt a responsibility to issue a decree barring Illinois legislators from receiving Communion after they passed recent radical pro-abortion legislation for the sake of the lawmakers’ souls and because of the scandal they created.
The scandal would be even worse if the faithful thought bishops weren’t taking action to address the situation, Paprocki, the bishop of Springfield in the state capital of Illinois, told LifeSiteNews in an interview Thursday.
And as a “defining issue of our time,” the bishop said, abortion carries more importance than other issues.
“As a shepherd of the Church, I'm concerned for the salvation of their souls,” Paprocki said of the lawmakers, “as well as the salvation of souls who are watching their actions and are scandalized by this.”
“And if we as bishops don't say anything about it,” he continued, “that just adds to the scandal of people thinking that, “Well, these politicians are doing things that are very immoral and very sinful, and the bishops aren't saying anything about that. So you know that would make it make it even worse. I just felt an obligation or responsibility to respond to what was going on.”
Paprocki has decreed that state legislators who had a hand in passing Illinois’s new abortion law may not present themselves for Communion, in particular naming both the Senate President John Cullerton and the Speaker of the House Michael Madigan as forbidden from the Eucharist.
