Despite claiming to be Catholic, Joe Biden works against the Church’s teachings everyday.
Not only that, but he has high-ranking allies who help him attack the Church.
And Joe Biden’s favorite Catholic is in hot water for helping Pope Francis in this despicable scheme.
Pope Francis seems to have waged all-out war on traditional Catholics.
For years, he has placed dumbfounding restrictions on them, along with other backhanded attacks.
But no attack has been as direct as his near-ban on parishes performing Latin Masses.
One place that didn’t expect to be affected by this was the National Shrine in Washington, D.C.
But with Joe Biden’s pal Cardinal Wilton Gregory of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., ultimately having control, that doesn’t matter.
Retired Archbishop Thomas E. Gullickson was all set to host Latin Mass on August 14th, in partnership with The Paulus Institute.
But this week, Gullickson received notice from Gregory that he was denied permission to celebrate the mass, using Pope Francis’ order as justification.
“We must write that the Pontifical Solemn Mass in the Traditional Roman Rite may not take place at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on August 14, the Vigil of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary,” a statement from The Paulus Institute board of directors reads.
The group continued“[a] letter from His Eminence Wilton Cardinal Gregory was received by His Excellency Archbishop Gullickson, our intended celebrant. The decision of His Eminence is that the Mass ‘would seem . . . to be at odds with the restrictions’ of Pope Francis placed upon liturgical celebrations using the 1962 Roman Missal, and is not opportune at this time for permission.”
Explaining that “the Shrine is the most appropriate church in the United States for this Mass,” they expressed sadness over the order, further writing:
“This is the Mass rooted in Apostolic Tradition, the Mass of saints and sinners, kings, queens and paupers, and doctors and virgins of the Church, and our own ancestors. It is the oldest, most venerable extant anaphora in the Church, East and West, recognizable by the Eastern and Orthodox with their Divine Liturgy.”
Archbishop Gregory is known for his support for Joe Biden, and even went so far as to tell Biden that he is welcome to receive Holy Communion in Washington, D.C. churches, despite his support for abortion and the LGBT agenda.
