New York, New York — It was reported that Cardinal Edward Egan hit at Rudy Giuliani claiming that ex-mayor, after receiving a holy Communion, dishonored a private agreement at the time when Pope made a visit there, without the support of Giuliani of abortion rights on Monday.

Egan said briefly, “I deeply regret that Mr. Giuliani received the Eucharist during the papal visit here in New York, and I will be seeking a meeting with him to insist that he abide by our understanding.”

But even the public criticism of Giuliani does not give any indication of an archdiocesan onslaught on common Catholics who may support abortion rights.

Robert Novak, Washington Post columnist published a column claiming that politicians of pro-abortion-rights received Communion during the visit of Pope Benedict XVI’s was a reflection of “disobedience to Benedict by the archbishops of New York and Washington.”

The office of Egan didn’t give any response or comment to the several calls. In fact the spokesperson for the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Sean Dolan also denied to give any statement on the position of Long Island diocese.

David Gibson, who has written the biography of Pope Benedict XVI, was the critical of Egan earlier, said that he became surprised when he came across Giuliani taking communion April 19 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan who was twice-divorced and was married for three times.

It is still up to the majority of ordinary Catholics whether he or she is agreed to receive communion or not. - Press Release Distribution Service
