Sorry if I’m underwhelmed.

If the statement holds water then when she gets back to Washington DC and attends mass, she will publicly be denied the Holy Eucharist.

Until then, these are only words.

Dear netmilsmom,

“If the statement holds water then when she gets back to Washington DC and attends mass, she will publicly be denied the Holy Eucharist.”

Unfortunately, Cardinal Egan is the Archbishop of New York, not the Archbishop of Washington or of San Francisco. He has no authority to prevent Ms. Pelosi from receiving the Blessed Sacrament in either her home archdiocese, San Francisco, or the archdiocese in which she works, Washington, DC.

Nonetheless, it was a loud, public, pointed, clear rebuke offered by the cardinal, and I, for one, appreciate it greatly.

Give Benedict XVI a little more time. I think you’ll be seeing some folks transferring their church affiliations across town to some of the more liberal denominations or, God willing, changing their positions.
