Last week, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops voted to advance a document that will discuss “Eucharistic coherence,” which Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila called an “opportunity for me and all bishops to recommit ourselves to an unapologetic preaching of Jesus Christ.” In the aftermath, corporate media once again proved themselves to be arbiters of hypocrisy, with headline after headline criticizing the church for allegedly politicizing the Eucharist.

Among others, NPR reported “Bishops Vote to Rethink Communion Rules,” a New Republic headline said “Conservative Bishops’ Attack on Biden Is an Attack on the Majority of U.S. Catholics,” and the Associated Press reported that the “US Catholic bishops [OK’ed] steps toward possible rebuke of Biden,” and that bishops met to “press Biden to stop taking Communion.” Leftist media is politicizing the bishops’ meeting — not the other way around. And their almost every interpretation of the meeting is misguided and blatantly false.

Bishops met to “write a document that will contribute to a real Eucharistic revival in the Church in our nation by highlighting the truth about the amazing gift Jesus gave us on the night before he died,” according to the head of the Doctrine Committee of USCCB, Bishop Kevin C.

Cozzens of St. Paul and Minneapolis, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis, announced a three-year National Eucharistic Revival initiative that was “prompted in part by a 2019 Pew Research study that found 69% of Catholics don’t believe the Church’s teaching that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist,” Our Sunday Visitor reported on Monday. The initiative is part of the USCCB’s Strategic Plan “Created Anew by the Body and Blood of Christ: Source of Our Healing and Hope,” which has been in the works for more than a year. 

Corporate media only started to pay attention to the USCCB when they realized they could categorize the meeting as an
