A lot of Catholics have been scratching their heads and asking, “Why are these professed pro-abort politicians allowed to flaunt the Catholic moral teachings and still be allowed to walk up the Communion line to receive the Body and Blood of Christ?” Now it seems she (and hopefully they) will be stopped dead in their tracks.
Crisis Magazine writes:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., perhaps the most rabidly pro-abortion Catholic woman in Congress, has finally gotten what she deserved. Cardinal Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, has ratified the opinions of Canon lawyer Ed Peters. The former Speaker of the House, the Cardinal said, is not to present herself for Holy Communion.
Now, of course, the decision to obey Canon 915, which governs the reception of our Lord’s Body and Blood at the holy sacrifice of the Mass, is up to Pelosi’s bishops and priests where she lives. But the point remains the same. That woman is not eligible to present herself for Holy Communion unless and until she publicly recants her position favoring the mass murder of the unborn, and then receives absolution for that grave sin in confession.
But the more significant observation is that none of the notorious pro-abortion Catholics should receive Holy Communion, and that includes Vice President Joe Biden. He and Pelosi received Holy Communion at the inaugural Mass of Pope Francis, and they both have flat-out lied to the public about Church teaching on abortion.
An important point: Cardinal Burke is showing more concern for Pelosi and her soul than the priests and bishops who refuse to act.
