Pope St. Pius X: “What is the thing we most need, today, to save society?”
There is a Sacrament Pelosi and any obstinate public sinner can avail themselves of any time they need it and as often as they need it. It’s not the Eucharist. It’s Confession. Archbishop Cordileone covered that very well in his letter to Pelosi.
Any conversation about the banning of Pelosi from reception of holy Communion that does not refer to this fact is disingenuous and not worth anyone’s time or attention.
The purpose of the holy Eucharist is for salvation, by giving increase of grace to those who are in a state of grace. It is useless and sacrilegious for Pelosi, and Biden as well, for that matter, to receive Our Lord as long as they persist in manifest grave sin. Archbishop Cordileone is forbidding Nancy’s reception as a medicinal matter, to aid in the salvation of her soul.
Confession and absolution is the Lord’s way of returning to a state of grace those souls who have lost the state of grace through grave or mortal sin, of which approval and support for abortion is one.

I wasn’t aware that we were letting just anybody walk into schools without being identified. It’s been my experience that, if the entrance door of the school isn’t locked to begin with, visitors must identify themselves before getting buzzed in.
How did the shooter get into the Texas school where he killed 19 children and 2 teachers? If the exterior door wasn’t locked, why not? If the killer didn’t get buzzed in, why not? Certainly someone with a gun would never be permitted into a school if normal protocols were in place.
With all the commentary on this tragedy, why is no one asking these basic questions?
UPDATE: The list of bishops proclaiming Catholic Faith on this matter now number 14:
Archbishop Cordileone decided that Nancy, who publicly promotes abortion, is for that reason a source of public scandal as well as personally sinful and thus unable to receive Communion in a state of grace. He requires that she abstain until publicly repentant in addition to receiving sacramental confession.
This is a direct challenge to Pope Francis’ plan to change the Church by giving Communion to everybody, starting with adulterers.
These bishops have publicly supported Abp Cordileone:
There are so many examples of the ways Pope Francis is canceling the Church it’s hard to know where to begin. Here’s another trick: claiming those who believe in the immemorial faith and morals of the Church of always are a “sect”:
Members of my parish family on May 22d after 11 am Sunday Mass and before meeting for weekly Sunday lunch at the parish hall.
In a new letter of instruction for his diocese, the bishop of Crookston strikes a blow against rupture from Catholic tradition by mandating kneeling, use of bells and incense.
Now, priests in his diocese who desire to be Catholic in every sense will no longer have to fight myriad and perennial battles against change ancients attempting to destroy Catholic reverence from within. The pernicious fiction that Vatican II sounded a death knell for traditions of Catholic worship continues to die an agonizingly slow but needed death in order to restore true faith and practice.
On May 21 1960 Richard and Mary Cusick were joined in holy wedlock in Detroit, Michigan. I remembered them on the road at Mass offered today on my traveling altar in Kentucky.
The family also celebrates today the nuptials of their grandson Riley and his beloved Jingyi. We are indeed a blessed family. Happy anniversary and future anniversary to both couples.
NB: Watch for another personal papal audience for Nancy Pelosi, with plenty of resulting public photos just so nobody mistakes the news for mere rumor.

(LifeSiteNews) – On Wednesday it was announced that Cardinal Joseph Zen had been arrested by the authorities in Hong Kong. The investigation and arrest was made by the special police section set up by the government of Beijing to watch over Chinese national security, that is, to suppress any form of dissent or protest over the violations of human rights committed by the Chinese dictatorship.
The elderly Cardinal – who in the past has expressed strong criticism of the secret agreement signed between the Chinese regime and the Holy See – was interrogated and then released on bail. His passport was also confiscated. What has happened is a very grave violation of the freedoms and rights enjoyed by every human person, all the more deplorable in the case of a Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church. The Vatican Press Office, with obvious embarrassment, limited itself to expressing “concern” without making any formal protest to the Beijing government. Only a few days earlier, ten other priests of the Baoding community, who belong to the clandestine Church, were abducted and sent to forced “re-education” by the Chinese Communist Party because they were unwilling to join the patriotic sect, adding to the list of abuses and oppression against Catholics who are faithful to the underground Church.
The poisoned fruits of the Sino-Vatican Agreement are now apparent. The Bergoglian church prefers to remain silent about the persecution of Catholics who belong to the clandestine Church after having handed them over to retaliations at the hands of the patriotic sect and the Chinese Communist Party. In exchange, Beijing rewards the Holy See for its services with substantial annual funding: the mercenaries allow themselves to be bought with thirty pieces of silver that are dripping with the blood of the martyrs of the Church of silence.
In September 2020, on the eve of the renewal of that infamous agreement, Cardinal Zen came to Rome to meet Bergoglio, who humiliated him with an indignant refusal to meet with him because of the Chinese Cardinal’s well-known position on the Sino-Vatican Agreement and its repeated violations. This affront against a Prince of the Church gave a clear signal to the Chinese dictatorship, which then felt free to act without fearing consequences or that the Vatican would take a position. The tenant of the Vatican, however, finds time to receive high-ranking representatives of the New World Order, representatives of globalism and usurious finance, dictators and war criminals, and even the wives of the soldiers fighting in the neo-Nazi Azov battalion, which in the past few days used civilians as human shields during the Russian siege of the Azovstal steel plant. Someone pointed out that the Russian-Canadian activist Pyotr Verzilov accompanied two Ukrainian wives to the papal audience: he is the founder and spokesman of the feminist group Pussy Riot, known for carrying out profanations and sacrileges against Orthodox churches in Russia, following the model of Femen in the West. It leaves us disconcerted that the representative of an anti-Christian movement that has made blasphemy the heart of its subversive action has been admitted to an audience at the Vatican.
This attitude of unequalled duplicity, that is anything but ambiguous, shows how Bergoglio’s deep church is totally aligned not only with the psycho-pandemic narrative but also with the insane management of the Russian-Ukrainian crisis by the deep state. Cardinal Zen is added to the dubia Cardinals in the list of those to whom Bergoglio has never responded to or received in audience, even as he has personally handwritten a letter of support to James Martin, S.J. With that umpteenth endorsement, Bergoglio confirms that he intends to normalize the pan-sexualism of the infamous LGBTQ ideology within the Catholic Church, and along with it the consequent eternal perdition of many souls.
The wisdom and prudence of Vatican diplomacy, a precious legacy of centuries of experience that was once admired by all the chanceries of the world, is today under the guidance of Pietro Parolin but a distant memory: courtly interests, economic profits, and criminal connivances all shamelessly prevail right before the eyes of both God and men. The faithful look on scandalized at the transformation of the Holy See into a den of thieves (Lk 19:46).
I exhort my brother bishops and priests as well as faithful laity to support His Eminence with prayer, expressing your closeness and solidarity with him at this difficult time. May the trials to which Cardinal Zen is being subjected merit from Heaven that reward which the Lord has promised to those who serve the Holy Church with fidelity and who remain steadfast in the Faith, without allowing themselves to be contaminated by the spirit of the world.

There are widespread claims, promoted and fueled by the pope in Traditionis custodes, that the traditional Latin language liturgy of the Church is divisive. Where is the evidence? My parish family, with traditional Latin Mass daily, gives full assent of intellect and will to all that the Church teaches in matters of faith and morals. That sounds a lot like unity to me.
There is evidence, however, that the novus ordo Mass of Vatican II is used to divide the Church. And this thanks to no less than a leading Cardinal of the German church.
Here is Cardinal Marx, a well-known ally of the pope, promoting sodomy as a Christian good in the context of the new Mass created after Vatican II.
