At the top of the hit parade this week has been the courageous action of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone who denied the Eucharist to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Responding publicly for the first time to her archbishop barring her from Holy Communion in her home diocese, the U.S. House speaker remains defiant in her support of abortion.
There is not a single Church teaching on women, marriage, the family or sexuality that Pelosi accepts.
Cordileone’s letter to Pelosi, instructing her not to go to Communion, was not some impulsive act. He has tried to deal with her for many years, trying to bring her back into the fold, but she resists.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Pelosi’s local bishop, has instructed her not to receive Communion because of her extreme pro-abortion-rights actions.
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco told the Register that ‘our goal is not to make abortion illegal; our goal is to make abortion unthinkable.’
Cordileone invited Catholics and everyone of good will to sign up for the “Rose and Rosary for Nancy” campaign at the website of the Benedict XVI Institute.
“When it comes to abortion, Pelosi has allowed the will of the world to matter more than the laws of God.”
“This proposed legislation is nothing short of child sacrifice,” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a Tuesday statement regarding the Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755).
The statue of St. Junipero Serra was toppled by protesters in June 2020, and has since been in a storage area.
Archbishop Cordileone draws a parallel between the abortion politics of today and the institutional racial discrimination that existed in the United States in the mid-20th century.
