Video – Standing Fast – Fr. Angelo Geiger #16: Charitable Anathema
Loading the player...
Fr. Angelo addresses the misconception that the discipline of withholding communion from obstinate and notorious sinners is somehow uncharitable. He takes Fr. John Hardon as his starting point to show that, in the right measure, it is the epitome of charity. To put it in a nutshell, he brings up Dietrich Von Hildebrand's interesting phrase, "Charitable Anathema." Fr. Angelo presents Archbishop Burke as a good example for our consideration.
