Roman Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco Ordered the priest of the Archdiocese House speaker Nancy Pelosi rejects the communion of the Eucharist in support of the Democratic Party of California for the right to abortion.
The move to Peroshi, which bans Bishop Salvatore Cordileone from receiving the Holy Body in his home church, was embodied in the Supreme Court’s 49-year-old court ruling Roe v. Wade within a few weeks. This is because it is expected to overturn constitutional rights.
The Roman Catholic Church considers abortion a “deadly sin” and opposes it.
“I tried many times with Pelosi Speaker to help me understand the serious evil she was committing, the scandal she was causing, and the danger to her own soul that she was endangering. Later, I decided she shouldn’t be in communion, “Cordileone wrote in a tweet.
Most Catholic bishops are reluctant to deny communion to politicians who support the right to abortion.
Cordileone’s orders apply only to priests in his parish, not to priests elsewhere. Pelosi was still able to communion at a church on the outskirts of San Francisco.
Cordileone informed Pelosi on Thursday, “I can’t present myself for communion because I support legal abortion, and she won’t be hospitalized.”
In a letter to the Archdiocese priests on Friday, Cordileone wrote, “Some people talk about actions that make me” weaponize “the Eucharist.”
“But this is merely an application of the teachings of the Church. The actions of those who follow the teachings of the Church are clearly for political purposes to justify the accusation of” weaponizing “the Eucharist. Must be proved, “Cordileone wrote.
“In both my words and actions, I have shown much more clearly that my motives are pastoral rather than political,” he added.
Pelosi last month argued over her support for the right to abortion: “If you don’t notice, I’m really Catholic, devout, and practicing, so I really burn me. They abandon me. I want .. But I don’t want to make their day, so I don’t go. “
In a 2008 interview with C-SPANWhen asked about the possibility of communion being denied because of her view, Pelosi said, “Fortunately … it has not been withheld and I am a regular communion, so if so. It will be a serious blow to me. “”
CNBC contacted Pelosi’s office and asked for comment on the Archbishop’s announcement denying her fellowship.
Eucharist is the essential sacrament of Catholic practice. A worshiper who receives it during the Mass as what is believed to be the literal body of Jesus Christ. The sacrament emulates the words he spoke when sharing bread and wine with the apostles at dinner the day before being crucified.
Last year, the Vatican warned US bishops of a move to refuse to associate with President Joe Biden, a Catholic who supports the right to abortion.
Pope Francis, the leader of the church, strongly suggested in September that bishops and priests should not deny fellowship with anyone.
“I have never refused communion to anyone,” Francis said at the time.
“Looking at the history of the church, we can see that whenever the bishops are not in control of the matter as pastors, they are in a political position on political issues,” said the Pope.
“What must the pastor do?” Francis was added. “Be a minister, don’t go blame. He is also an excommunicated minister, so he should be a minister.”
At the meeting last fall, US bishops did not pass the declaration that politicians who support the right to abortion should be denied communion.
However, the bishops approved a statement stating that they were responsible for “working to improve situations involving visible fellowship and public behavior that differ from moral law.”
