Bishop Schneider is calling for acts of reparation not only for Pelosi’s sacrilege but 'for those in the Vatican who permit this,' such as Pope Francis.

(LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Athanasius Schneider has decried U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “sacrilegious” reception of Holy Communion as a pathway to her soul’s damnation.
In response to Pelosi’s obstinate reception of Holy Communion even after she was barred from the Eucharist by her local bishop, Schneider singled her out as the “poorest” figure “in this horrible scenario of this sacrilegious communion” in a Tuesday interview with Terry Barber on The Terry and Jesse Show.
Schneider told Barber that in receiving the Eucharist despite her mortal sin of supporting the killing of innocents in abortion, Pelosi must be pitied, because “she is consciously, stubbornly eating her judgment.”
Schneider echoed the words of St. Paul, who warned, “Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself.” [1 Corinthians 11:27-29]
