In a stunning rebuke of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, the Archbishop of San Francisco, who presides over Pelosi’s home district, gave a powerful rebuke to pro-abortion politicians.

Written in a May 1 letter on worthiness, Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone wrote, “It is fundamentally a question of integrity: to receive the Blessed Sacrament in the Catholic liturgy is to espouse publicly the faith and moral teachings of the Catholic Church, and to desire to live accordingly.” He added, “We all fall short in various ways, but there is a great difference between struggling to live according to the teachings of the Church and rejecting those teachings.”

In the letter, Cordileone specifically rebuked Catholic public officials who advocate for abortion. “You are in a position to do something concrete and decisive to stop the killing,” he said. “Please stop the killing. And please stop pretending that advocating for or practicing a grave moral evil – one that snuffs out an innocent human life, one that denies a fundamental human right – is somehow compatible with the Catholic faith. It is not. Please return home to the fullness of your Catholic faith.”

“The Church’s teaching and discipline on worthiness to receive Holy Communion has been consistent throughout her history, going back to the very beginning,” the archbishop noted.

“[T]he teaching of our faith is clear: those who kill or assist in killing the child (even if personally opposed to abortion), those who pressure or encourage the mother to have an abortion, who pay for it, who provide financial assistance to organizations to provide abortions, or who support candidates or legislation for the purpose of making abortion a more readily available ‘choice’ are all cooperating with a very serious evil,” stated Archbishop Cordileone. “Formal cooperation and immediate material cooperation in evil is never morally justified.”

Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi’s home Archbishop that she, Joe Biden, and other “Catholic” public officials should reject abortion otherwise they should reject the holy sacrament of the Eucharist?

About time. This does not even need to be in the open and political. He just needs to send her a letter and tell her not to present herself for the Eucharist until she publicly repents. This was done in Medieval times and seems appropriate now.

They, too, need our prayers for their soul’s salvation, that they will see the Divine Light of Almighty God, and turn away from the evil of murdering unborn babies.

Excommunicate ALL who are democrats, leftists and any who support BABY KILLING. The majority of them also are predators, perverts, pedophiles and human sex traffickers. AMERICA and all Christians globally should be hunting these vermin like the wild animals they are. They’re not human.

There’s been enough talk, and everyone knows where that is going: it’s going nowhere; no one is taking it seriously. It’s got to a point where you doubt the resolve and the conviction of even those who talk tough, like Cordileone. Perhaps he’s talking tough because he knows that nothing will happen?
Do the right thing, which is LONG overdue: grab the bull by the horns and get those people (Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Cuomo, all the Kennedys…, ALL of them) EXCOMMUNICATED right away; period. Then, and only then, will I believe in the sincerity of our Bishops (including Cordileone and Bergoglio). I won’t bother listening to any platitudes before that, period.

YES, it’s heartbreaking this happens. What happened to birth control. I know Catholic’s don’t believe in using birth control but it’s better than abortion

I agree 100% with the Cardinal who heads the San Francisco diocese. He also deserves to be addressed as the Cardinal, not by just his surname as he was later in the article. I could not find the name of the author who penned this article for “PRO-LIFE UPDATE”.

It’s one thing to agree that abortion is okay. It’s quite different when you are the Catholic lawmaker making abortion possible. We can’t judge them. God will! The priests should deny them Holy communion!

I totally agree one should not be Catholic unless in line with the Church teachings and taking an unborn life is a mortal sin–it is killing.

Yes, I agree with the Archbishop. Not only should Pelosi and Biden not be able to receive communion, but they should both be excommunicated from the Catholic Church altogether!!!!

I agree with the priest she is against guns even tho guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Unless the mother life is in danger or the women was raped. Abortion should not be a means of birth control as there are numerous ways to prevent getting pregnant. If the church is against prevention of birth fine but I’d rather b guilty of prevention then the Murdering of innocent babies Mrs Pelosi stand on gun control n her stand on abortion are further proof of the Hypocrisy she spewed out kill babies but don’t kill people. It’s as bad as saying it is wrong to say All Lives Matter ! And Yes Black lives Matter !

Not a catholic but WTF? Do they always leave it up to the lay person? Or have they ever taken the initiative and simply REFUSED them communion? Whatever happened to excommunication? Looks like another case of one rule for thee, another for me.

If you want the benefits God gives you. To be a member of a religion that believes abortion is a sin should not be surprised when you are denied the Holy Sacrament. Get with it Nancy, you ain’t that special.

He should publicly state that she must renounce her stance on abortion. If she doesn’t she is excommunicated from the Catholic Church and no longer receive the Body and Blood of Christ. Maybe if he wrote a letter to the local newspaper in her area it would hit home.
