Understanding the Bishops' Vote to Write a Document

"Did the bishops recently vote to excommunicate certain politicians?"
 
Since the conclusion of the Spring Plenary Assembly of the U.S. bishops in June, there has been much attention on the vote taken to draft a document on the Eucharist. The question of whether or not to deny any individual or groups Holy Communion was not on the ballot. The vote by the bishops last week tasked the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Doctrine to begin the drafting of a teaching document on the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life. The importance of nurturing an ever deeper understanding of the beauty and mystery of the Eucharist in our lives is not a new topic for the bishops. The document being drafted is not meant to be disciplinary in nature, nor is it targeted at any one individual or class of persons. It will include a section on the Church’s teaching on the responsibility of every Catholic, including bishops, to live in accordance with the truth, goodness and beauty of the Eucharist we celebrate.
 
For more information about this important topic, CLICK HERE to read the statement by Archbishop Jose Gomez, the chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
