Question from Bernice Lenahan on 4/19/2008:
I just saw ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani receive communion at the mass at St. Patrick's during the Papal Mass. Since he is divorced and is pro-choice, how can he receive the Holy Eucharist? Is this not slander at least?
Answer by Fr. Robert J. Levis on 4/19/2008:
Bernice, I expect the former mayor was lost in the congregation and the priest or deacon did not recognize him (perhaps). Some priests would communicate him, others (like myself) would not. Fr.Bob Levis
