San Francisco Archbishop BANS Pelosi From Communion

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone excludes notorious pro-abortion US Speaker Nancy Pelosi from receiving Communion in his archdiocese, where she lives.

In a May 20 statement, Cordileone extensively quotes Pope Francis affirming the Church’s teaching that abortion is a grave moral evil. [However, Francis has also received Pelosi warm-hearted rolling out a blood-red carpet for her.]

Cordileone has struggled with this issue for many years.

He has tried to reach out to Pelosi and convert her heart but her “position on abortion has become only more extreme over the years, especially in the last few months.”

His example, Earlier this month Pelosi presented herself as “devout Catholic” while justifying abortion: “They say to me, ‘Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the Pope.’ Yes I do.“

After numerous attempts to speak with her, Cordileone has finally determined that Pelosi “is not to be admitted to Holy Communion unless and until she publicly repudiate her support for abortion ‘rights’ and confess and receive absolution for her cooperation in this evil in the sacrament of Penance.”

Cordileone's move came as Pelosi has amplified calls to federally protect or fund access to abortion, amid widespread expectation that the Supreme Court will soon overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Eucharist is a remedy for a soul sick with venial sin, but this medicine cannot be given to the dead—those in mortal sin. The remedy for mortal sin is the sacrament of Confession.

It won't stop her. You'll soon see a video of her trying getting her Novus Ordo cookie.

Francis, “I have never refused eucharist to anyone. If we look at the history of the church we will see that every time the bishops have not managed a problem as pastors, they have taken a political stance on a political problem. What must the pastor do? Be a pastor, don’t condemn.”

An act of charity by the Archbishop. May he be blessed for it - and protected.

@Sally Dorman Francis last year: "I have never denied Communion to anyone."

How about when you ordered all the churches of Rome to stop public Masses due to the scamdemic?

Deo Gratias!

Can. 915 Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed or declared, and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy communion.

This would be a last resort. I believe Archbishop Cordileone did indeed make efforts to speak with Nancy Pelosi privately, and likely with great charity. I am grateful he has taken this very serious step for the good of her soul and for the good of the church.

Thank you, Archbishop! The whole Catholic world needs you to do this - we are so grateful! May Our Lady protect you under Her Mantle - please do not back down - regardless of how the dissenting winds might blow~~~. Our Lord is in charge of the storm - He simply needs us to stay strong and refuse to compromise!!

Better late than never. Now she will threaten to remove the Church's 'non-profit' status . . .

I'll bet that Pelosi couldn't care less and that there are many priest who would give her communion anyway

Let's hope & pray bishops around the world will be inspired by Archbishop Cordileone's example and follow suit in dealing with these disgraceful & shameless pro-abortion Catholic politicians.
There should be zero tolerance for sacrilegious communion.!!!
