JUST IN: More Catholic Bishops Ban Pelosi From Holy Communion

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House and Representative for California, has been banned from receiving Holy Communion in other Catholic dioceses. Since Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco banned the president from receiving Holy Communion in his diocese, three other bishops have joined him.

According to The National Catholic Reporter, Bishop Robert Vasa of the Diocese of Santa Rosa, which borders San Francisco, forbade him from receiving Holy Communion. Communion, the prohibition followed the person and the minister could not ignore it,” he added. Archbishop Cordileone and Bishop Robert Vasa were received by Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Diocese of Arlington, Virginia, and Bishop Joseph E.Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas.

According to Fox News, it all started a week ago when Archbishop Cordileone said the Speaker of the House would be banned from receiving Holy Communion for her pro-abortion stance. Abortion is strictly forbidden in the Catholic Church. Church, although several Catholic Democrats, such as Pelosi and President Joe Biden, have championed abortion rights.

The Archbishop told President Pelosi in a letter that she should not attempt to receive Holy Communion in, and that if she did, the priests would deny her the Church’s historical and perennial teaching that “life begins from the moment of from conception must be guarded with the utmost care, as abortion and infanticide are heinous crimes. Beginning with life in the womb, Christians have always upheld the dignity of human life at all stages, especially the most vulnerable.

In line with his predecessors, His Holiness Pope Francis taught in the most clear and forceful manner about the dignity of human life in the womb,” he wrote in the letter. “This basic moral truth has implications for Catholics in their daily lives. , especially those responsible for promoting and defending the public good of society”.

Pope John Paul II also had a firm belief in preserving the Church’s continuing doctrine, reminding us that “those who are actively involved in legislatures in have a ‘heavy and unmistakable obligation to resist every law that threatens human life”. It is impossible for them, like all Catholics, to support or vote for such laws” (cf. Doctrinal Note on Some Questions Concerning the Political Participation of Catholics [November 24, 2002], No. 4, 1).

According to Church teaching, a Catholic legislator who supports forced abortion is clearly committing a grave sin that causes great shame to others. As a result, universal church law states that such persons “shall not be admitted to Holy Communion” (Code of Canon Law, can.915)” said the archbishop.

“I am grateful to him for the time he has given me in the past to speak on these subjects as I strive to continue this course.” Unfortunately, despite my multiple requests to speak to you again, since you have committed to the Roe v. Wade of the Supreme Court in federal law after the passage of Bill 8 by the Texas Senate last September, I received no such adjustment.

It is for this reason that I wrote you a letter on April 7, 2022, informing you that if you do not publicly deny or refrain from publicly denouncing your defense of abortion “rights” at
, your Catholic… calling faith and receiving Holy Communion, I will have no choice but to declare, under Canon 915, that he will not be admitted to Holy Communion,” he said.

“Because she has not publicly denounced her abortion stance and continues to use her Catholic faith to explain her position and receive Holy Communion, the time has come.Consequently, in light of my responsibility as Archbishop of San Francisco, “to be concerned for all the faithful entrusted to [my] care” (Code of Canon Law, can. 383, 1).

I hereby advise you that you must not appear for Holy Communion and if you do so you will not be admitted to Holy Communion until you publicly reject your defense of the legality of abortion and go to Confession and Holy Communion receive.
