Even worse! The priest actually published the case in the Church weekly bulletin.
He compare my friend’s father to Judas Iscariot. Both committed suicide.
First he quoted CCC 2261,
"Scripture specifies the prohibition contained in the fifth commandment: “Do not slay the innocent and the righteous (Exodus 23:7)”
He also quoted CCC 2281 (without mentioning 2283)
Suicide contradicts the natural inclination of the human being to preserve and perpetuate his life. It is** gravely contrary** to the just love of self. It likewise offends love of neighbor because it unjustly breaks the ties of solidarity with family, nation, and other human societies to which we continue to have obligations. Suicide is contrary to love for the living God."
and then he quoted 2325 “Suicide is seriously contrary to justice, hope, and charity. It is forbidden by the fifth commandment.”
His final said that “our diocese forbid mass for people who committed suicide.”
I’m still amazed how a priest could quote CCC out of context.
