Pope's support for pro-abort (Quo vadis, Pope Francis? Part 189)

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

So whose side are you on, Pope Francis? You did not express joy or approval over the overturning of Roe v Wade. But you express joy and approval for Nancy Pelosi who is rabidly pro-abortion, and allow her Holy Communion in blatant violation of what is sacred. You had harsh words against Abp Cordileone who banned Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion, but had words of support and a blessing for abortion-loving Pelosi.

Are you not concerned over her soul? And for that matter, over your own soul?

Pope Francis’s Warm Welcome to Nancy Pelosi: A (not so) Subtle Message of Support for Abortionists

Pope Francis remained silent as anti-abortion Catholics (and non-Catholics) around the world joyfully celebrated the Supreme Court’s landmark decision overturning Roe v. Wade, giving the impression he was at least uncomfortable if not displeased with it.

Pope Francis’s Warm Welcome for Nancy Pelosi . . .

Then, on June 29, the Solemnity of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, he broke his silence not with words but with a symbolic gesture: he greeted and blessed the pro-abortion representative Nancy Pelosi in St. Peter’s Basilica. After that brief meeting, the House Speaker attended Mass and received Communion.

Although the pope did not give her Holy Communion (due to health reasons, he did not celebrate Mass but attended next to the altar), he must have known Mrs. Pelosi was going to receive Holy Communion, as she normally does.

And the Vatican protocol office gave her a place of honor. Indeed, Nicole Winfield writing for the Associated Press reports that at the Mass, “She was seated in a VIP diplomatic section of the basilica and received communion along with the rest of the congregants, according to two people who witnessed the moment.”

. . . Sends a Message of Support to Abortionists

Pope Francis showed no sign of contentment with the pro-life movement’s great victory with the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling, which drastically restricts the crime (and sin) of abortion.

On the contrary, he welcomed a politician who publicly criticized that ruling and who is an outspoken supporter of abortion.

How not to interpret his attitude as support for pro-abortion Catholics?
