Well, that's a lot of "shoulds". But this is the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Will that happen? And if not, what then? I guess that's where I'm going with all this. It just seems that all this is left to her 'honor' for reconciliation.
You can see why the Church hierarchy has shied away from confronting this issue. Say the bishop does put forth such an order, and the local churches obey it. Pelosi then repents and receives absolution for her sin. How are the priests and laypersons who were ordered not to dispense communion to her to know of her repentance (confession is supposed to be private) and she is now allowed to receive the sacrament? I guess the bishop could rescind the order if he were informed of her reconciliation (or granted it himself), but I would guess the penitent individual would have to grant permission for the information to be made public. I don't know.
In any case, the Church has to take a stand on this. They just can't keep looking the other way while these public leaders who claim allegiance to the church so wantonly flaunt their disobedience to a fundamental teaching of the church of the Lord. If their words are to carry any moral weight, the leaders of the Church have to take a public stand and back their words with actions. I guess we'll see what happens.
