House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who claims to be a devout Catholic but nevertheless believes in abortion — which is vehemently opposed by the Church — met with Pope Francis in Rome over the weekend and was scheduled to perform a reading at Mass but was prevented from doing so due to a “security issue.” Photos posted by various news agencies show Pelosi meeting Francis during a private visit on Sunday “amid a backdrop of conservative U.S. bishops targeting pro-choice American Catholic politicians,” the National Catholic Reporter noted, citing the Vatican’s daily bulletin.
After their meeting, Pelosi announced it herself on Twitter, saying “it was a spiritual, personal and official honor to have an audience with His Holiness.” “His Holiness’s leadership is a source of joy and hope for Catholics and for all people, challenging each of us to be good stewards of God’s creation, to act on climate, to embrace the refugee, the immigrant and the poor, and to recognize the dignity and divinity in everyone,” she wrote. “In San Francisco, we take special pride in Pope Francis, who shares the namesake of our city and whose song of St. Francis is our anthem.”
In a statement, she alluded to and praised the Pope’s climate change activism. “His Holiness’s encyclical Laudato Si’ is a powerful challenge to the global community to act decisively on the climate crisis with special attention to the most vulnerable communities,” she said. “I expressed the gratitude of those working on climate action in the Congress for the immense moral clarity and urgency that His Holiness continues to bring to the climate crisis, and how we continue to cherish his address to the Joint Session of Congress in 2015.”
She added: “His Holiness commands our attention to honor the Gospel of Matthew by serving ‘the least of these,’ lifting up those who have been left out or left behind, especially in the time of COVID.”
Also Sunday, Pelosi was to give the second reading at a Mass in Rome but a “security incident” prevented her from doing so, according to Bree A. Dail, The Epoch’s Time’s Rome correspondent. She posted a video of Paulist Fr. Steven Petroff, rector of St. Patrick’s Catholic American Parish, making the announcement that Speaker wouldn’t be appearing.
The incident drew varied responses on social media.
Pelosi’s meeting with the pontiff comes after her hometown archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, released a pastoral letter in which he announced that pro-abortion Catholic politicians like her — and like Joe Biden, the country’s second Catholic president — would not be welcome to receive Holy Communion in his diocese. Biden is scheduled to meet with Francis in a few weeks. In addition, Cordileone has targeted her in recent weeks with a “Rose and Rosary” campaign, in which he has urged Catholics around the country to say a Rosary for her once a week and to fast on Fridays for “conversion of her heart.”
Thousands of small roses were delivered to Pelosi’s office as part of the campaign shortly after the House passed the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021, which — if it passes in the Senate — will codify the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion into law. “Wonderful,” tweeted Cordileone upon hearing the news. “Each of these 1000 roses represents one Catholic praying a rosary and fasting on Fridays for Speaker Nancy Pelosi through October. May the Blessed Mother touch her heart. Join me in this Rose and Rosary campaign.”

And the Pope is a socialist from a socialist country and he won’t dis communicate Biden, Dr. Jill and Pelosi. And! Catholic University has a painting of George Floyd as Christ on his Mama’s lap at the library. This is nothing against true Catholics , but how can they tolerate this idiocy?

I am a Catholic. I attend mass because it is the only place where I can receive communion (the Body of Christ).

I whole heartedly agree with you that church and the church’s foray into public politics has caused religious leaders to diminish or flat out reject God’s laws and God is not happy.

Pope Francis happens to be the first Jesuit to become a Pope since the church began. The Jesuits have been known for this liberal ways and there was a time they were suppressed from the church because they often dismissed traditional Catholic doctrine.

We can see the Pope’s liberal views on gay marriage, plan for a one world all denomination church, relaxation of the laws governing grave sin and communion, his involvement in liberal politics, his socialist views, the failure to address pedophile priests and bishops and much, much more.

Also, it is a known fact that the Catholic Relief Services are aiding and abetting illegal immigrants coming into this country co-operating with the Federal Government serving as a relocation resource.

I do not like the Pope any more than I do my president, but I realize that the Catholic Church is God’s Church which is being run by a liberal leader who has religious power plans and objectives e.g. one world church with him at the helm.

I go to mass listen to the gospel, receive communion, pray, examine my conscience, talk to Jesus but that’s the reason I am there. I am not to demonstrate my support the views or politics of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis was installed by the efforts of Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama. They used the banking system and threat of shutting the financial system of the Church down in an effort to pressure the Vatican to accept Francis as the Pope. Pope Benedict was forced to resign and the world did not question why. Plenty more on that story but cannot explain the details here.

I continue to attend the Catholic Church for the reason’s mentioned above, although I am ashamed of Francis, the pope as I am of Joe Biden the president. You notice I did not refer to either as “my”

Some religious leaders claim this is the end of times and this sitting Pope will be the last before the Rapture after which, according to scripture, the Vatican in Rome will be destroyed by God. If we are near the end of times, it’s time for all to get there lives in order and get closer to God.
