Doesn't he ask for forgiveness of his sins before each time he receives the sacrament? Some who just attend Catholic church are worse. But I agree if you're a public political figure who requests your vote to represent you, they can be held to an even higher standard. I know a local guy that's worse than Gov Cuomo: Not only did his family help finance the building of the new Catholic church his family regularly attends, his kids are blessed there and his wife teaches CCD, he is the Village Mayor, prominent town business man, community leader and otherwise politically involved and economically connected throughout the region, BUT he's continued to cheat on his wife of 20 years as often as he can with whomever he can! I'm sure the only way he hasn't been struck by lightening yet is that he asks for forgiveness each time he recieves communion- isn't that how it works?

My dear child, forgiveness doesn't matter. Catholic rules are rules and must be observed. Only Catholic Clergy can sin and obtain the Communion Wafer. Lay People must follow the rules I have placed on them. The reason that clergy can sin is that they are are above the Lay Population in the Catholic Church. Who is going to give the lay people their wafer? As the Holy Father of said Church, It is my duty to enforce all rules. Those who do not want to observe our rules are free to leave.

If anyone does not want to leave I have instructed my Certified Catholic Priests to place thy foot in their ass and boot them out the door!

No. You don't perform an Act of Contrition at Mass prior to presenting yourself for Communion.

My dear child, I have always instructed one to say the act on their way up to the rail.

May the Catholic God be with you my child.
