Although Cuomo has separated himself from the Catholic Church with this public display you as his bishop must now officially and publically separate him from the life giving sacraments of the Church.

I agree. I have been told we must pray for the bishops, cardinals. Believe me, Tweeted to Cardinal Dolan, my Catholic friends keep telling me to be quiet. But the Germans were quiet during the Holocaust!,,,
"The greatest obstacle in the apostolate of the Church is the timidity or rather the cowardice of the faithful."
-Pope St. Pius X

"The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: 'Here is the wolf!' when it enters the flock or anywhere else." - St. Francis de Sales

This is the problem with clergyman within our Church. No real clear cut action, just a lot of ambiguity and double talk. Cuomo is not threatened with "tough talk" He will hopefully reflect upon his public action, and if he truly loves the Church will repent and come back. In the meatime he needs to "sit in his cell."

The fallout from this travesty (no one excommunicating Cuomo) will be less attendees at their Novus Ordo Masses. The remaining faithful will be made to feel guilty, to fork over more money to pay the bills. Less people will attend. More parishes will close and they'll still pretend everything is ok. How pitiful. In the 60's, before the 'Spirit of Vatican II' was implemented, 85% of Catholics …More

How pitiful. In the 60's, before the 'Spirit of Vatican II' was implemented, 85% of Catholics attended weekly Mass. It now stands at 15% here in America. And the entire hierarchy think they're doing a wonderful job in proclaiming the Catholic faith. I think not. Here is another instance which will literally chase faithful Catholics from the pews. Oh. And don't forget to give to the bishops yearly appeal $$$$$.
I understand .. i am so upset that they don’t go to the streets screaming at us... and PPH. Their job is to judge and tell them , us we are sinning! Grave sin abortion is? Cardinal Dolan said it was just up to the lay people.. he said he was only a old Irish man.. really? No clout? If he doesn’t who does? I don’t know how God can watch America go to hell?
