Mistaken Email: Pelosi Allowed Communion in Washington

Washington Cardinal Wilton Gregory provides pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi with Communion in his Archdiocese.

Pelosi was prohibited in her home archdiocese San Francisco by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in order to avoid a sacrilege. Several bishops endorsed this decision.

WashingtonExaminer.com (May 23) asked Gregory’s communications office about his position and received an email reply that was evidently destined for somebody else,

“Just sharing for you to know what comes in email since Saturday, when I last checked the comms inbox has just been a couple of random people wanting to tell the Cardinal to bring down the hammer on Pelosi. Aside from Jack Jenkins at RNS, this is the only new media inquiry. It will be ignored, too.”

WashingtonExaminer.com asked for clarification and received a follow-up email: “I apologise for the mistaken email. We have not been responding to inquiries on this topic because Cardinal Gregory's position has not changed from what he has said in the past.”

And: “Cardinal Gregory has no new comment about the issue of Catholic politicians receiving Communion. The actions of Archbishop Cordileone are his decision to make in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Cardinal Gregory has not instructed the priests of The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington to refuse Communion to anyone.”

One of the knock on effects of Abp. Cordileone's action is to show everyone clearly which bishops still retain a functioning shred of Catholicity and which are apostates/cowards (effectively the same thing.) I think we're up to 18 Catholic.

The Covid Circus just adds insult to the injury of defiling Christ. Mrs. Pelosi isn't wearing a mask or does it have a "coin slot" ?

I didn't get that email?

Weer een Kardinaal die zonder recht op pensioen kan worden ontslagen.

Galatians 1:9

As we have said before, so now I repeat, if anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that one be accursed!

Council of Trent
No one conscious of mortal sin should approach the Holy Eucharist, however contrite he may seem to himself

Now ecclesiastical usage declares that this examination is necessary, that no one conscious of mortal sin, however contrite he may seem to himself, should approach the Holy Eucharist without a previous sacramental confession. This, the holy Synod has decreed, is always to be observed by all Christians, even by those priests on whom by their office it may be incumbent to celebrate, provided the recourses of a confessor be not lacking to them. But if in an urgent necessity a priest should celebrate without previous confession, let him confess as soon as possible [see n. 1138 ff.]. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1647. Council of Trent, Session XIII, October 11, 1551)

Whoever publicly asserts that one may receive communion in mortal sin is excommunicated

If anyone says that faith alone is sufficient preparation for receiving the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist: let him be anathema. And that so great a Sacrament may not be unworthily received, and therefore unto death and condemnation, this holy Council ordains and declares that sacramental confession must necessarily be made beforehand by those whose conscience is burdened by mortal sin, however contrite they may consider themselves. If anyone moreover teaches the contrary or preaches or obstinately asserts, or even publicly by disputation shall presume to defend the contrary, by that fact itself he is excommunicated. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1661. Julius III, Council of Trent, Session XIV, October 11, 1551)
