St. Nicholas Would Punch this Heretic in the Face

Uncertain as to what I ought to say about this man, I will let his own words condemn him.

"I believe, of course, that it's the Body and Blood of Christ, but you know, as Pope Francis said, communion is not a reward for the perfect.  It is medicine for the sick.  It is medicine for those who need it.   So, you know, you look at the Last Supper, I mean, were the disciples to whom Jesus gave communion all perfect?  Absolutely not.  I mean, he gave communion to Judas, for pete's sake.  So, I think we need to get away from this idea that you need to be perfect in order to approach the communion rail."

You must be in a state of grace to receive the Eucharist. Jesuit Fr. James Martin is wrong. If you receive the Eucharist in a state of sin--if you're "not perfect" and in a state of grace--then you eat to your own condemnation, and you are receiving the Eucharist unworthily.

Some priests "just don't believe all that bullshit." Apparently.

UPDATE:  Apparently, I'm not the only one shocked by this man's apathy towards the truth of Catholic teaching.  Even Vox Cantoris has taken note of this priest over at his blog.  I suppose Fr. James Martin is becoming one of the "power players" on the side of darkness that tears at the Church.  Keep an eye out for his crap, folks.
