Bishop Stowe ‘Not in Favor’ of Eucharistic Document, But Predicts it Will Pass

Screenshot of Diocese of LexingtonBishop John Stowe of Lexington, Ky. says he will vote against a document on the Eucharist being considered by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops at their fall assembly in Baltimore Nov. 15-18, 2021.

While some bishops consider it a source of scandal to allow those not in communion with Church teaching to receive the Eucharist, others argue that taking a hard line would “weaponize” or politicize the sacrament.
