KOMMONSENTSJANE – ‘When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do’ – IS PELOSI APPLYING FOR JOB AT THE VATICAN?

Since Pelosi can’t receive communion in her home church – is she commuting to Rome to receive communion on the taxpayers’ dime? I bet the Pope got an ear full if she confessed her past week’s sins. Note that she dragged her HUSBAND with her. Remember he was arrested for DUI and we are still waiting for that mug shot.

Nancy’s exhibition – showing the POWER SHE HAS OVER THE RULE OF LAW/PEOPLE.

Why worry – Rome is just right down the street? That little bit of jet fuel she used to prove a point and spit in someone’s eye doesn’t hurt the environ-mental folks as long as it is a liberal.

ROME — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Pope Francis on Wednesday and received Communion during a papal Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, witnesses said, despite her position in support of abortion rights.

Pelosi attended the morning Mass marking the feasts of St. Peter and St. Paul, during which Francis bestowed the woolen pallium stole on newly consecrated archbishops. She was seated in a VIP diplomatic section of the basilica and received Communion along with the rest of the congregants, according to two people who witnessed the moment.

Pelosi’s home archbishop, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, has said he will no longer allow her to receive the sacrament in his archdiocese because of her support for abortion rights. Cordileone, a conservative, has said Pelosi must either repudiate her support for abortion or stop speaking publicly of her Catholic faith.

Pelosi has done neither. She called the recent Supreme Court ruling removing constitutional protections for abortion an “outrageous and heart-wrenching” decision that fulfils the Republican Party’s “dark and extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions.”

And she has spoken openly about the Catholic faith, including at a diplomatic reception at the residence of the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See on Tuesday evening marking Independence Day.


Speaking to a crowd of ambassadors, Vatican officials and other Rome-based Americans, Pelosi noted the Catholic virtues of faith, hope and charity and the important role they play in the U.S. Embassy’s mission.

“Faith is an important gift, not everyone has it but it is the path to so many other things,” she told the crowd.

(Would you call that hypocritical jargon? It is called PIOUS BALONEY 2.0.

Pelosi met with Francis on Wednesday before the Mass and received a blessing, according to one of the Mass attendees. A photo released by the Vatican showed Pelosi and her husband, Paul Pelosi, greeting Francis off to the side of the basilica.

Francis has strongly upheld the church’s opposition to abortion, and on Wednesday said church leaders must “continue to care for human life.” But in his homily, Francis also instructed the new archbishops to welcome everyone into the church, including sinners, and to not “remain pinned to some of our fruitless debates.”

“So many times we become a church with open doors, but only to send people away, to condemn them,” he said.

Remember, we are all sinners. We just need to pray for Pelosi.
