Canon 915: "Completely clear"

"The Canon is completely clear, it is not subject in my judgment to any other interpretations. When someone is publicly and obstinately in grave sin we may not administer Holy Communion to the person. And that, basically, for two reasons: number one, to prevent the person himself or herself from committing a sacrilege, and secondly, to protect the sanctity of the Holy Eucharist."

- Archbishop Raymond Leo Burke,
Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura
