No communion for Nancy Pelosi: Vatican court head

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has no  Catholic right to be  granted Communion, said the leading cardinal of the  highest court at the  Vatican.

Mrs. Pelosi should be denied Communion  until she changes her advocacy views  on abortion, Cardinal Raymond  Leo Burke said, according to the Western  Center for  Journalism.


That’s canon law, not opinion, he said. Canon 915 states that  Catholics who are stubbornly contrary “in manifest grave sin  are not to  be admitted to Holy Communion.”

And Cardinal Burke said Mrs. Pelosi fits   the definition.

“Certainly this is a case when Canon 915 must be  applied,” he said,  the Western  Center for Journalism reported. “This is a person who  obstinately, after  repeated admonitions, persists in a grave  sin — cooperating with the crime of  procured abortion — and still  professes to be a devout Catholic.”

The cardinal also said that Mrs. Pelosi is a perfect example of Catholics who separate their faith from day-to-day  living.

“This is a prime example of what Blessed John Paul II referred to as  the  situation of Catholics who have divorced their faith from their  public life and  therefore are not serving their brothers and sisters in  the way that they must  — in safeguarding and promoting the life of the  innocent and defenseless  unborn, in safeguarding and promoting the  integrity of marriage and the  family,” he said.

The cardinal, an American, is the prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the  Apostolic Signatura in Rome, Life News reported.

About time.  No Catholic who supports abortion should take Communion.
