Welcome!

Pelosi apparently bared from communion

Dear Martin,
 
This decision took real courage.
 
Moments ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s archbishop – Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco – announced that he has issued an interdict barring her from receiving the Eucharist due to her public and persistent activism in favor of abortion.
 
I suspect you may be thinking: it’s about time.
 
No doubt, this announcement is welcome. And yet it is not ultimately about politics or punishment. It’s about repentance, obedience, and the responsibility of every Catholic (including us!), but especially those in leadership or prominent lawmaking roles to uphold the timeless teachings of the Faith that we profess.
 
CONSIDER: Church law requires this. Canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law states clearly: “Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”

      After the GOP sweep the mid-terms, I expect senile Joe to be impeached.
      Hopefully, it will bankrupt him of his ill-gotten wealth, but sadly, it will enrich DC lawyers.

      The impeachment will never see the light of the day!

      Compilig to Church Law has nothing to do with The Mark of the Devil

    Look around and you will see real acts of faith, even in non-Christian countries.

    Of course, they could also often be described as acts of stupidity.

      I find acts of faith to fascinating.

      By the way, I agreewith your prior comment!

    Clearly the Archbishop acted reasonably under the authority given to him by the Catholic Church and protected by freedom of religion guaranteed by the 1st Amendment.

    Yet the Left wants to treat this as a political act… In my opinion, this editorial appears to be extremely biased:
