NO COMMUNION FOR YOU! Pelosi MUST be denied communion under the law Comments

CNS News is reporting via various sources that the Vatican is affirming that House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must be denied communion under the law of the Catholic Church. The statement originated from Cardinal Raymond Burke, archbishop emeritus of St. Louis and Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura. Continue Reading

    I would have more respect for the Church's so-called "Leaders" if, instead of making empty threats, they were actually to carry one out.

    Thank you Cardinal Burke. It's about time someone in the Catholic Church showed some wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude (or courage), knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.

    So who is the worse sinner? Nancy Pelosi who supports abortion or (in another news item) Rev. W. Jeffery Paulish, a Catholic priest, who was caught in a car with a pantsless 15-year-old boy on a Pennsylvania college campus. Will Father Paulish be denied communion? Would his participation as a priest in the liturgy bother anyone? Does Canon Law 915 apply here?
    Can either person be forgiven?

    Do I have a plank in my eye? This is something that should be settled between Ms pelosi and her bishop and not me.

    I don't mean to be gleeful...

    But it's about time! Thanks be to God! Thank you Cardinal Burke! I'm so grateful for Canon law and for the mother Church! Finally some discipline for a self-proclaimed disciple!

    Praise be you Lord Jesus, our high priest and savior! Cardinal Burke has been quite relentless over the past few years concerning such apostasy and schism evinced by catholic brothers and sisters who serve in high government positions. Again, I say, with no equivocation, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops should have promulgated this directive of canon law several years ago even when John Kerry ran against then President Bush. Back then, Mr. Kerry put his soul in dire straits when he demonstrated no compunction or urge to repent from his adamant and zealous stand in defending abortion as a legitimate moral choice for women. Lamentably, he was still given our Lords sacred body, blood, soul and divinity in conjunction with the bishops' plea that one must examine his conscience and ensure that it is enlightened by reason, faith and the unwavering doctrines of the Church. So what gives here? Saint Paul says quite clearly in 1 Corinthians 11:27, "Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of our Lord." And the Lord says quite clearly in Matthew 5:37, "Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no. Anything else is from the evil one." In closing, I highly recommend the book, The Angel's Blackboard, which is wonderful compendium of Bishop Fulton Sheen's most noteworthy episodes of Life is Worth Living. His talk titled "Ethics for the Unethical" truly sums up the perversion and subjective relativism of the moral law which has taken place in the United States.

    @Elsa

    These are your words:

    "To the "good" Cardinal, and those who agree with him, Jesus said: "You who is without sin cast the first stone!"

    He also said, "Go and sin no more".

    This also includes tearing babies apart alive, as they do with thousands of abortions each and every day, with over 55 million alone in this nation, not to mention the billions in the world.

    If we are to criticize the Nazis for killing 6 million jews, do you think Jesus would say, "Oh, those of you without sin cast the first stone", if we criticize the mass babykillers for millions more by orders of magnitude???

    Hypocrite!

    St Thomas More refused to separate his political life from his faith, which resulted in his death.

    What has Ms Pelosi to fear? Maybe her political life will take a turn - FOR THE BETTER! And most certainly her Spiritual Life would be greatly improved even to the point of reconciliation with the Catholic Church, because for sure if she continues to receive Holy Communion in a state of grave mortal sin excommunication remains an option.

    You have to remain consistent in Life - whether at work, at home, at college, with your pals on the golf course, socializing at dinner parties etc... Stay faithful to your Catholic Faith and others will recognize you as someone who does not bend in the breeze or follow the spirit of the times, but someone with backbone that can be trusted and depended upon!
