Despite abortion views, Biden, Pelosi receive Communion in Vatican Mass – Washington Times

See on Scoop.itYour Catholic Yenta

Vice President Joseph R. Biden and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi both received Communion during the Mass to celebrate the installation of Pope Francis in spite of their pro-choice position on abortion.

Kristen McGuire‘s insight:

Well, yes, because the person receivign communion is the one who would incur the wrath of God should he or she not be in a state of grace to do so. It is rarely the case that a priest dispensing communion has had sufficient communication with someone that they could reason that it is imperative to refuse them communion. How the heck do they know the state of someone’s soul?

 

I hate articles like these.

About Kristen West Mcguire

I'm a wife and mom. Sometimes I work, and sometimes I homeschool and sometimes I just meddle, Although I worked at a military chapel for a few years and even taught CCD, most of my life I have been just a pew-sitting, kid-shushing Catholic mom. Since my conversion in 1992, I've been propositioned to join Opus Dei, Regnum Christi, the Neocatechumenal Way, Cum Christo (at least I think that is what Ultreya meant), and at least a few third orders, I just don't go for that extra stuff. I'm a Plain Jane Catholic.
