For the most part, I agree with Archbishop Cupich's sentiments and vision:
We can't fight ideologies at the "Communion rail" (I love that term) and I agree with Archbishop Cupich.
I have found the public discourse by some in the Church, to include some bishops, as a bit untoward when there is naming of names and suggesting they not go to Holy Communion.
I believe that each local bishop has the responsibility to deal privately with public persons and not in the press or the Church at large. Specific people should not be singled out even if they are public persons and sinners, unless they are formally excommunicated by their local bishop who prior to excommunicating the person tried privately and persistently to deal with that person but to no use.
I often teach and preach that a person should be in a state of grace to receive Holy Communion. I state that if one is knows they are in a state of mortal sin they should not receive Holy Communion until they have received sacramental penance.
However, I never say at Mass, Johnny, I know what you did on your date last night, and so does everyone else here, so don't come to Holy Communion today. Mary, you counseled a person to have an abortion and brought her to planned parenthood and others here saw you doing it, don't come to Holy Communion today!
Doing this is very untoward, unnecessarily public and grandstanding and pushes people away from God's grace rather than toward God's grace and the transformation and conversion that God alone can induce.
Finally, listen to Nora O'Donnell's questions of Archbishop Cupich about same sex marriage and trying to get him to say something against the Church's teaching and how well he dealt with it. We can all learn a lesson from His Excellency concerning how to deal with this topic!
I knew then Monsignor Blase Cupich in the 1980's when he was rector of the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio. I found him to be solid, orthodox and theologically adept. He had a vision for the Church and the priesthood. He knew the direction he wanted to take in the formation of seminarians and future priests. Plus he offered me a job on the college level there which flattered me but I did not want to take.
Keep an eye on Archbishop Cupich and learn from him. His liturgical ways need some developing as these are a bit too 1980's still and don't take into account the liturgical developments that occurred under Pope Benedict, but no one is perfect!
