In a statement featuring newly installed Archbishop Salvatore Cordileonewho leads the San Francisco Archdiocese where House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi livesthe U.S. Catholic bishops announced on Thursday that they are calling on Catholics to pray the rosary every day and to fast and to abstain from eating meat on Fridays as part of a pastoral campaign aimed at preserving religious liberty, the right to life and the institution of marriage in the United States of America.
The well-being of society requires that life, marriage, and religious liberty are promoted and protected, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said on a special webpage produced for the campaign. Serious threats to each of these goods, however, have raised unprecedented challenges to the Church and to the nation.
"With the challenges this country is facing, it is hoped that this call to prayer and penance will help build awareness among the faithful as well as spiritual stamina and courage for effective witness, said a statement by Archbishop Cordileone, who is chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage. We also hope that it will encourage solidarity with all people who are standing for the precious gifts of life, marriage, and religious liberty.

Perhaps the time approaches when the Church will address her Pelosi problem?
Was this sent to her by certified mail - return receipt requested? Anyone available to check on her Friday lunches?
There are also the Biden and Sebelius problems, never mind a host of other nominal Catholics on the liberal side of politics.
The headline makes it sound like pelosi has her very own archbishop. From the looks of it though, it sure wouldn’t be this one.
From the article:
[...] who leads the San Francisco Archdiocese where House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi lives [...]
Thus, I think that the article makes it abundantly clear that Pelosi merely happens to live in that particular archdiocese.
If most Catholics voted for the Democrats as the polls show, does the Arch-Bishop really expect that they’re going to pray against the things they voted in?
The Catholic Church, as well as dozens of “mainstream” evangelical and protestant churches, all have supported and promoted the “Social Gospel”, Jesus as a socialist.
The have sown the wind and are now reaping the whirlwind.
I read the article. I was talking about the headline. It just struck me funny.
As I said, if she did have her own archbishop, it sure would NOT be his one. her heinous would not tolerate it.
ya think ? I have been waiting a longgggggg time for Her to address the Kennedy problem :-(
Democrats FIRST loyalty is their Socialist Agenda. Jesus wasn’t really a Socialist (see, they interpret the Bible to mean what they want it to mean, just like they do with the Constitution),so he comes second.
LOL! I know, I thought the same when I read the headline.
It will never happen.
Let Pelosi spit all over the Church with no word from the Church condemning her actions while we pray and fast.
Meanwhile beg her to give amnesty to illegals that fill the pews.
Yeah that’s gonna work.
“Perhaps the time approaches when the Church will address her Pelosi problem?”
She probably gives a ton of money to the church like the Kennedys did. Money talks.
Call me when he excommunicates Pelosi. Until then, it’s all a sack of cr@p.
Mr. Obama got the CINO vote - again.
“The headline makes it sound like opelosi has her very own archbishop.”
Yep. Makes it sound like she keeps him on a leash, and feeds him little bone-shaped treats.
It should be (have been) pray, fast, abstain AND VOTE.
