San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone encouraged pro-lifers to join him in praying for the conversion of Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s heart so that she will recognize the value of unborn babies.
Life News reports:
In a statement Wednesday, Cordileone lamented how Pelosi, who professes to be Catholic, recently led the U.S. House in passing a radical pro-abortion bill that would legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth nation-wide and force taxpayers to pay for them.
“A conversion of heart of the majority of our Congressional representatives is needed on this issue, beginning with the leader of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” the archbishop said. “I am therefore inviting all Catholics to join in a massive and visible campaign of prayer and fasting for Speaker Pelosi: commit to praying one rosary a week and fasting on Fridays for her conversion of heart.”
The Benedict XVI Institute is leading the “Rose and Rosary for Nancy” campaign. More details may be found at BenedictInstitute.org.
Cordileone and Pelosi, who lives in San Francisco, repeatedly have sparred about abortion, especially in recent weeks as the House advanced the pro-abortion “Women’s Health Protection Act.”
Previously, Pelosi disagreed with Cordilione, saying, “The archbishop of the city, that area, of San Francisco and I have a disagreement about who should decide this.”
