Heresiarch Cupich, is this what you want to accompany? To where would that be?

“If people come to a decision in good conscience then our job is to help them move forward and to respect that. The conscience is inviolable and we have to respect that when they make decisions, and I’ve always done that.”
“I think that gay people are human beings too and they have a conscience. And my role as a pastor is to help them to discern what the will of God is by looking at the objective moral teaching of the Church and yet, at the same time, helping them through a period of discernment to understand what God is calling them to at that point,” 
"It’s for everybody. I think that we have to make sure that we don’t pigeonhole one group as though they are not part of the human family, as though there’s a different set of rules for them. That would be a big mistake.” Blase Cupich
Actually, Blase, they need to abide by the same rules that I do. 

Ignores Second Vatican Council

In response to Heresiarch Cupich's statement, a priest friend wrote reminded me of this and provides some further comment


PASTORAL CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH IN THE MODERN WORLD  (“GAUDIUM ET SPES”) PROMULGATED BY HIS HOLINESS, POPE PAUL VI ON DECEMBER 7, 1965
“16. In the depths of his conscience, man detects a law which he does not impose upon himself, but which holds him to obedience. Always summoning him to love good and avoid evil, the voice of conscience when necessary speaks to his heart: do this, shun that. For man has in his heart a law written by God; to obey it is the very dignity of man; according to it he will be judged.(9)
 Conscience is the most secret core and sanctuary of a man. There he is alone with God, Whose voice echoes in his depths.(10)

In a wonderful manner conscience reveals that law which is fulfilled by love of God and neighbor.(11)
 Father comments
In fidelity to conscience, Christians are joined with the rest of men in the search for truth, and for the genuine solution to the numerous problems which arise in the life of individuals from social relationships.
 Hence the more right conscience holds sway, the more persons and groups turn aside from blind choice and strive to be guided by the objective norms of morality.
 Conscience frequently errs from invincible ignorance without losing its dignity.
 The same cannot be said for a man who cares but little for truth and goodness, or for a conscience which by degrees grows practically sightless as a result of habitual sin. ”

As Father Ray Blake asked, "Who let this man make his first Holy Communion?"

I ask this bishop - Where is your compassion for the little children? Do you really think that your words will not be taken as a green light by the internally disordered to do this to children in good conscience? Or maybe you see nothing horribly wrong in this picture? Would YOU have liked and celebrated such "parents"? Speak honestly.

Has anybody noticed the evil look reflected on the child's face on the left? Scary....

Perhaps the good bishop would like to accompany, and give Holy Communion, to the trio discussed at the link. Lord, have mercy!

The 'conscience' as B. Cupich refers to, has not been correctly formed to begin with for the last 50 years. The nuns that taught me at times put the fear of God into us, but guess what? They kept our souls out of mortal danger.

That child does have an evil look. Hope he's just uncomfortable, as the rest of us are.
