    The Vatican has made clear that no priest may deny Communion to Catholics in good standing because they want to receive the Sacrament kneeling.(LifeSiteNews) — A Catholic parish in the Diocese of San Bernardino is requiring parishioners to sign waivers before receiving Holy Communion kneeling – a move that may violate Church law. St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Community in Beaumont and Banning, California, announced the rule in a bulletin for the week of December 18, 2022.

    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”...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.
