On Friday afternoon, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco publicly stated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not allowed to receive Holy Communion due to her public support of abortion, in contradiction with the teachings of the Catholic Church. This means that the priests of his archdiocese are not to allow her to receive the Eucharist throughout the archdiocese, and other bishops have followed suit for their own dioceses as well.
Banning someone from receiving the Eucharist is the Church’s statement that they are not in full communion with the Catholic Church in their beliefs or actions, and only happens when someone is very publicly contradicting the Faith. The purpose of this ban is to both prevent the scandal of other Catholics, as well as to call the individual to repentance in order to reinstate communion with God and the Church.
