Pope Francis has directed the bishops of Argentina, his home country, to govern the Church there following a document that makes clear that holy communion should be disallowed for any person who facilitates abortion, including politicians.
These are the guidelines we need for this time in history, the pope wrote to the bishops.
According to LifeSiteNews, Pope Francis emphasized use of the Aparecida Document as a framework in a letter to the Argentine Assembly of Bishops sent in late March. In 2007, then-Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio--now Pope Francis--first presented the document on behalf of the bishops of Latin America.
Cardinal Bergoglio was highly critical of those who promoted the death sentence of abortion for unborn children in Argentina. His criticism peaked following a clandestine abortion performed on a mentally disabled woman with the assistance of the nations health minister.....

Pope Francis, please send a similar note to all the Bishops of the United States.

God bless him and protect him from the left.

Good. Now direct the bishops in America! I want the photographs of the Bidens walking home in the cold after being denied!
How’d I miss that?
If he does and enforces it, I’m back.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
A lot of people would come back.
But then, some don’t give a rip.
This Pope seems OK so far.

If this pope shows spine / enforces doctrine and they don’t care, they don’t matter.
I don’t understand your question.
Well well well...
With Biden, Kerry, and Pelosi, their politics dictates their faith, when it should be the other way around.
I was going to say Because you were too excited. But that would be mind-reading and I can’t do that so I just wrote Because ?? And I will let you fill in the blank space as to why you missed the first line.
