Robert Fuller, an active member of St. Therese Catholic Church in Seattle, self-administered a poisonous cocktail of drugs on May 10, 2019 after a day-long celebration that began with Fuller’s legal “marriage” to his same-sex partner.
On May 5, 2019 he had presented himself at Sunday Mass, where he received Holy Communion and a special ‘blessing’ from guest priest Fr. Quentin Dupont, S.J.
..the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reported that Fuller had said in a Facebook post he published on March 16 that he had completed the necessary legal steps to get medical assistance for his suicide and that he had his Jesuit pastor’s “blessing.”
Bob Fuller: “I have absolutely no reservations about what I am doing,” he wrote. “And my pastor/sponsor has given me his blessings. And he’s a Jesuit!!!”
Fuller wrote on his Facebook page that he had studied “philosophical theology” at Seattle U.
Fuller wrote that his “faith family at St Therese” had “renewed his faith” and that his “kharmic [sic] scales” were balanced.
According to Gene Johnson, also of the AP, Fuller’s religious beliefs were not Catholic. For one thing, he believed himself to be a “shaman.” However, he was “beloved” at St. Therese Parish, and his decision to end his life was “widely known and accepted by among the parishioners.”
In his article, Johnson contrasted the Catholic Church’s opposition to euthanasia with the parishioners’ knowledge and the blessing service: “The Roman Catholic Church opposes aid-in-dying laws, citing the sanctity of life.”
“But Fuller’s decision was widely known and accepted among the parishioners. At the service where he received his last communion on May 5, the Rev. Quentin Dupont brought over a group of white-clad children who were receiving their first communion. They raised their arms and blessed him.”
The Archdiocese of Seattle said that the pastor of St. Therese Catholic Church found out about Fuller’s intention to end his life only when Fuller approached him about the funeral...
Catholic commentator Patrick Coffin was incensed by the AP story, which appeared across the USA on August 26.
“How much darkness can be crammed into one story?” he tweeted.
“Seattle Jesuit Quentin Dupont, SJ, gathers first Holy Communion children to bless a self-described homosexual shaman who intended to kill himself. And did. Archbishop Sartain?”
LifeSiteNews reached out to Fr. Dupont, the American Jesuits’ West Province, and the pastor of St. Therese Catholic Church but has not yet received a response.
The archdiocese is led by Archbishop James Peter Sartain Bergoglio appointed Paul Etienne as coadjutor who arrived to assist Sartain in April.
Facebook posts contradict Seattle archdiocese claims on parishioner’s planned suicide.
Abp. Terrence Prendergast: 'We cannot be forgiven pre-emptively for something we are going to do'At least two bishops have spoken out publicly against providing last rites for those planning to die by assisted suicide. Archbishop Terrence Prendergast of Ottawa, Ontario, released a statement in 2016 noting that a person who is planning suicide doesn't have the proper disposition needed to receive the sacrament.
Asking to be killed is gravely disordered and is a rejection of the hope that the rite calls for and tries to bring into the situation. … But we cannot be forgiven pre-emptively for something we are going to do — like ask for assisted suicide when suicide is a grave sin.Although he encouraged priests to be present to pray, the person may "turn away from it."
In December 2016, Bp. Vitus Huonder of Chur, Switzerland also released a statement instructing priests in his diocese not to administer last rites to those planning on committing assisted suicide.
"The readiness of a suffering patient to commit suicide with help from a bystander places any priest in an impossible situation if called to administer sacraments," he said.
"[F]rom a Christian viewpoint, life and death are in God's hands," he added, "we do not decide about them for ourselves. Suicide, like murder, contradicts the divine world order."
“... Antichrist and his prophet will introduce ceremonies to imitate the Sacraments of the Church. In fact there will be a complete organization - a church of Satan set up in opposition to the Church of Christ. Satan will assume the part of God the Father; Antichrist will be honored as Savior, and his prophet will usurp the role of Pope. Their ceremonies will counterfeit the Sacraments . . .” Published in 1921 (37 years before the pivotal 1958) by Father E. Sylvester Berry in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John.

New Sacraments: "The False Prophet may institute secret rites, through which the followers of Antichrist will be advanced by degrees into the deeper mysticism of his cult. A sort of diabolical sacramental system would thus be instituted conferring the graces of Satan and consecrating people to the service of the Beast." page 325
