This woman (read the following facts for yourself) introduced her “lover” to the priest just prior to the funeral Mass he was to offer for her mother. Granted the priest should have said something then and there, but he didn’t. Maybe he was hoping that she would not come to Communion, even though he knew she was going to give a eulogy. That, too, should have never been allowed; after all, no one is supposed to give the eulogy (pace sermon) but a priest or deacon, even for funerals.
LifeSite News: A parish priest in Maryland, who denied communion to a woman who identified herself as a lesbian, has been publicly rebuked by the Archdiocese of Washington.
Barbara Johnson attended her mother’s funeral last Saturday and introduced her lesbian partner to the priest before Mass. Full account is here.
After posting this almost two hours ago I have since been informed that Deacon Kandra has an update to this news posted on his blog. Someone from the parish sent him more information that puts Father Guarnizo in an even better light and negates my own commentary concerning the priest’s hesitancy in confronting the woman before the Mass. The fact is that he did not hesitate. The woman introduced her “lover” to him in his own sacristy and then and there he told her not to present herself for Communion. Here is the update.
After posting this story and an update on March 1, more information has come to light. It appears the sacrilegious communicant, Barbara Johnson has been a long time activist for the LGBT agenda and she is a student of Buddhist philosophy. That’s not all. She, and her Artworks school, are rabidly pro-abortion. See Joshua Bowman’s piece at Prolix Patriot (scroll down to fourth paragraph).
