    VATICAN CITY (RNS) — In defiance of some U.S. bishops, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reportedly received Communion during a Mass presided over by Pope Francis on Wednesday (June 29) for the celebration of the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced June 1 that the Catholic congresswoman is banned from receiving Communion in her home diocese of San Francisco due to her abortion rights stance. Since then, she has been barred from receiving the sacrament in four dioceses.Pelosi called the recent pronouncement by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade an “outrageous and heart-wrenching”...
  • After Banning Nancy Pelosi From Holy Communion, San Francisco Archbishop Gets Bad News From the Vatican

    The Roman Catholic Church has a long-standing opposition to abortion, and in fact to birth control as well. Abortion is strictly forbidden by Catholics, but some Democrats have chosen to be at odds with their faith. Liberals such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden who are pro-abortion and who call themselves Catholics are then caught in between their politics and their religion. Leaders in the Catholic Church are taking a stance on this. Recently the Archbishop of San Francisco, Salvatore Cordileone, banned Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion due to the Catholic Church’s position on abortion as...

    Fourth Bishop Bans Nancy Pelosi From Receiving Communion Because She Promotes AbortionA fourth Catholic bishop has banned Nancy Pelosi from receiving communion. Bishop Michael Burbidge says Pelosi can’t receive communion in the Diocese of Arlington, Virginia because she’s radically pro-abortion.Bishop Burbidge has extended the communion ban that Pelosi’s home bishop in San Franciso put in place late last week saying it now applies to her if and when she visits any Catholic church one the Virginia side of the nation’s capital.Burbidge said he respects the decision San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone made to deny communion to Pelosi because of her...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—After being denied communion in her home city of San Francisco, House Speaker Pelosi has retaliated against the insult by introducing articles of impeachment against Pope Francis. "Denying me the Eucharist is a high crime. It's not even the Pope's job to deny communion to anyone," said Pelosi to gathered reporters in Washington. "Who does he think he is? He's gone mad with power! It is, therefore, my solemn Constitutional duty to draft articles of impeachment to be sent to the Senate so Pope Francis can be tried for his crimes." In the ensuing investigation, Congress found the Pope...

    I’m sorry but I just can’t stay away from the story of Archbishop Salvatore Cordelione announcing that, because she’s an aggressive advocate for unlimited abortion, Nancy Pelosi no longer qualifies for communion in his diocese. With the weekend having passed since the Friday announcement, noted religious scholars Nancy Pelosi and Whoopi Goldberg (that was sarcasm for those who thought I was serious) have weighed in and their takes are, well, extraordinary. To go back a little to set the stage, on Monday, San Francisco Examiner (one of two hometown newspapers for Pelosi) issued an aggressive editorial announcing that, as between...

    In defiance of her own Archbishop’s decision to deny her communion because of her aggressive promotion of abortion, new reports indicate Nancy Pelosi received communion yesterday at a liberal Catholic church in Washington. As LifeNews reported, Cordileone said he formally notified U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week that she can no longer be allowed communion because she is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church by virtue of her repeatedly promoting abortion. Cordileone, who serves Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco, said he informed the congresswoman of his decision Thursday after repeated attempts to speak with her about...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the archbishop of San Francisco is wrong for banning Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from receiving communion because of her stance on abortion but not banning Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) for being pro-death penalty. Behar said, “Pope Francis is not pro-choice, but he is also against capital punishment. I don’t see anybody denying, what’s his name, Abbott — Governor Abbott in Texas, who is the Catholic, and he’s executed many people. I don’t see him seeing he can’t receive communion. So the hypocrisy is in the church too. It also...

    SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) released the following statement regarding San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J Cordileone's decision to deny Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) communion because she supports abortion access: "After supporting Prop 8 and refusing to get vaccinated, our right wing Archbishop is now attacking one of the most effective leaders in the history of our country, because she supports reproductive health and safe access to abortion. The Archbishop's refusal to give communion to Speaker Pelosi is shameful. He is deeply out of step with San Francisco and should be removed."

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will not be allowed to receive communion due to her staunch support for abortion rights, according to the congresswoman’s Roman Catholic archbishop. San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone sent a letter on Thursday to Pelosi, D-Calif., a practicing Catholic, informing her that she had been warned to either “repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’” or “refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion.” “I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to...

    The Catholic hierarchy, from the Pope down, must stop leading Catholics to believe they can vote for politicians who support violence in the womb.The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) held a national day of fasting and praying the rosary last Friday in response to the leaking of the draft Supreme Court decision that could nuke the Roe v. Wade precedent. Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the USCCB, and Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, invited the faithful to unite in penance and prayer for the nation,...

    The twitterverse is all abuzz over a #1 trending hashtag, #PoopypantsBiden, so at the risk of soiling my very soul, I perused Twitter's website to see why. The story starts with our president meeting the pope at the Vatican, presumably to discuss Jesus's thoughts about climate change and whether one can claim to be a good Catholic while facilitating the dismemberment of unborn babies. Three things stood out about the meeting. One is that the Vatican canned the traditional live footage of the event, instead providing only still shots and small snippets of conversation between the two pale, frail old...

    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | October 31, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    It is a fundamental doctrine of the Catholic Church that life begins at conception and ends at natural death and that an abortion ending human life is a grave sin, as is funding and promoting abortions. . It is also a fundamental doctrine of the Catholic Church that when presenting themselves to receive Holy Communion they should not be in a state of grave mortal sin. Yet here was the Vicar of Christ receiving President Joe Biden without any public rebuke or condemnation of Joe Biden, our second Catholic President, for his support of abortion on demand and its funding...

    In an age of “cafeteria Catholics” who pick and choose which church doctrines they will adhere to and which they will ignore, an age where we have a Pope Francis, who would have us pray for the oceans and invites Amazonian “priests” and their fertility gods into the Vatican, it was refreshing to see a Catholic priest speak truth to power and tell a craven Catholic politician that abortion-on-demand is a moral evil opposed by the Catholic Church and to approve of it means you are unworthy of receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion. You cannot be personally opposed to...

    President Joe Biden said Thursday that Pope Francis told him to keep receiving communion — even though he publicly supports killing unborn children through abortion. “We just talked about the fact that he was happy that I was a good Catholic and … keep receiving communion,” Biden told reporters after his private meeting with the pope at the Vatican. He said they did not discuss the issue of abortion.

    A prominent Vatican official has stated that President Joe Biden should not be denied communion over his pro-choice views and public policy stances in support of legal abortion.While there's been much debate this year in the Roman Catholic Church over whether politicians who support legal access to abortion should be denied communion, the head of the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development told AXIOS on HBO that Biden's policy stance on abortion shouldn't prevent him from receiving the Eucharist."The Eucharist should not in any way become a weapon," Cardinal Peter Turkson said in an interview that aired on Sunday....

    Secret Commission: Is Francis Preparing His Next Attack On the Church?Francis wants to „study“ Communion for Protestants, (August 4) writes.However, Protestants don’t fulfil the two prerequisits for receiving Communion, i.e. going to confession and believing in transsubstantiation.Rumours say that Francis instructed the Secretary of the Liturgy Congregation, Archbishop Vittorio Francesco Viola, a former lecturer at the anti-Catholic Liturgical Institute of Sant'Anselmo, Rome, to organise a „confidential commission“ in September, and to report directly within only two months to Francis.In defiance of all pretended 'synodality', this method which Francis likes is bypassing the Cardinals, bishops, and all bodies in charge...

    In the fourth century, St. Ambrose of Milan spoke truth to power. U.S. bishops could learn something from him.On Saturday, New Mexico state Sen. Joe Cervantes, a Democrat from Las Cruces, tweeted that because he voted to repeal a state law that criminalized abortion, he was denied communion by Bishop Peter Baldacchino, apparently after several warnings (something the senator conveniently neglected to mention).I was denied communion last night by the Catholic bishop here in Las Cruces and based on my political office. My new parish priest has indicated he will do the same after the last was run off. Please...

Joe Cervantes, a Las Cruces Democrat, tweeted Saturday morning he was denied Communion on Friday “based on [his] political office.” In his tweet, Cervantes wrote he was denied Communion, or the Eucharist, “by the Catholic bishop here in Las Cruces,” apparently referring to Peter Baldacchino, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces. “My new parish priest has indicated he will do the same after the last [priest] was run...

    [Catholic Caucus] What St. Junipero Serra shows about Eucharistic coherenceWhat does an 18th-century Franciscan missionary have to do with a 21st-century debate about abortion and communion? Bear with me, and I’ll explain.First let me make a confession. I’ve been working full-time as a Catholic journalist for nearly 40 years now, and I still don’t know what bishops do all day.Oh, I don’t mean that quite literally. I know what fills the hours: meetings, mostly. I’ve even seen some bishops’ daily schedules. Running a diocese, like running any large organization, requires a lot of time and effort.But what are they doing...

    Members of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are trying to clarify their position and deal with the confusion caused by their announcement last week that they would create a teaching document on the Holy Eucharist or the meaning of Communion. The statement caused many to speculate that the church was looking to deny President Joe Biden and other pro-abortion Catholic politicians from receiving Communion.The speculation was misplaced, said the bishops.“There will be no national policy on withholding Communion from politicians,” the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said in a Q&A document dated June 21.“The intent is to present a...
