“Fr knew the lady was a practicing lesbian because she came into the sacristy and introduced her ‘lover’ to Fr just before the Mass. He quietly denied her communion (so quietly that the Eucharistic minister next to him didn’t realize that he did), and the woman promptly went to the other line and received communion anyway! He left to use the restroom (he was getting a migraine) between the eulogies, but did finish the ceremony and escorted the casket out. He made arrangements for there to be another priest at the gravesite and there was. He felt that it was a matter of conscience to deny her communion since he had been informed that she was an active homosexual by her own admission.”
No more Communion in the Hand.
And no more “Extra”ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at Mass….as this sad episode makes such a restriction very evident, along with many, many other reasons.

Kindly ask that they consider apologizing to Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, and then kindly inquire if they have lost their collective minds for doing what they did.
