Under the watchful eye of the happy-go-lucky Archbishop of Melbourne, Peter Comensoli, neo-Nazi Premier Dan Andrews was given Holy Communion today at the state funeral of entertainer Bert Newton.
Dean of the Cathedral, Fr Werner Utri, placed the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ into the hands of the man who is responsible for more murders than Jack the Ripper, due to the pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia legislation inflicted by Daniel Andrews on his state of Victoria.
Prior to the distribution of the Eucharist, Archbishop Comensoli announced to the congregation that “what has become for us the Body and Blood of Our Lord is received by Catholics – those in communion with the Catholic Church – in Holy Communion.” He then invited Catholics who come forward “in good faith” to receive Communion.
The Cathedral was packed with showbiz personalities and its administrators must have been glad they had Tap and Go terminals installed during the pandemic. The twinkling lights might have lured a few celebs into leaving donations after Mass today. If so, Andrews deserves a tip for his Faithful Catholic performance.
In addition to his existing death-dealing laws, Premier Andrews is trying to have two more disastrous pieces of legislation passed: one that will force Catholic schools to employ sodomites (although, to be honest, how many parents with children at Catholic schools would have any objections to that?) and another that could see Catholics detained for failing to be injected with harmful and immoral COVID “vaccines.”
That latter law will give Andrews unlimited power in his state without the oversight of Parliament and has received round condemnation from politicians, lawyers and QCs, grassroots activists, Christian groups and even from some progressive media outlets. One figure who has remained conspicuously silent about Andrews’ tyranny is the Archbishop of Melbourne: the same Archbishop who looked on while Andrews received Holy Communion today.
Left. Archbishop Comensoli, doing his best JPII impression. He must have missed the memo about fighting against totalitarian regimes.
For those with strong stomachs, here is the eulogy given by Daniel Andrews for Bert Newton. It contains all the hype and hubris we have come to expect from politicians who like to thumb their nose at God while flaunting their Catholic credentials. Andrews ended with the money quote, “Bert was more than talent, he was trust.”
Whatever that means.
In the face of all this dazzling celebrity, one might expect that the Archbishop could overlook some of his important obligations. But this was not at all the case, as ABC News summed up in their breathless report:
“Archbishop Comensoli gives some instructions about hand-sanitising stations before the communion begins.”
We only wish that the Archbishop would be as concerned about the state of his communicants’ souls as he is about their hygiene.
