Catholic Prelate at the installation of Episcopal woman 'bishop'|
Above right, in his purple vestments one can distinguish Bishop Patrick McGrath of San Jose at a religious ceremony. What was the ceremony? It was the installation of "bishop" Mary Gray Reeves as Episcopalian leader of San Jose, above center, on January 11, 2008.
The Catholic Prelate's attendance at this Protestant installation is yet another ecumenical act that adds to the countless others made by the Conciliar Popes and Bishops. Notwithstanding, according to traditional Catholic doctrine, to participate in religious ceremony with heretics (communicatio in sacris) makes a person suspect of heresy.
Further, by attending that particular ceremony, the Catholic Bishop of San Jose took a clear stance supporting the faction inside the Anglican sect - Episcopalians are the Anglicans in the U.S. - that favors consecrating women and homosexual as bishops.
It is known that many of those Anglicans who disagree with these consecrations are asking to be received in the Catholic Church. Therefore, by supporting this liberal wing, Bishop Patrick McGrath, following the Vatican orientation, is favoring woman and gay bishops and disregarding those who want to embrace the true Catholic Faith.
