The online California Catholic Daily caught up with Archbishop Donald Wuerl while he was in San Diego this past weekend, and asked him whether, in his capacity as Archbishop of Washington DC, he would take disciplinary action against the new Speaker of the House, the pro-abortion Rep. Nancy Pelosi:
“Will you make a statement to your priests and deacons to warn her not to allow her to receive if she presents herself for Communion?”
Wuerl: “You’re talking about a whole different style of pastoral ministry. No.”
In southeastern Nigeria, the faithful of the Nsukka diocese have been warned that if they don't register to vote by February, they can't receive Communion.
That's a whole different style of pastoral ministry, too.
