BISHOP BRENNAN'S OPEN LETTER
Events in our lives tend to take on a life of their own and they can certainly outpace our responses too. Lord knows we have been through a lot as a nation, as a people of faith, as a Church and, simply, as humans who are hurting when others are hurting, like those moms and dads in Uvalde, Texas. So, my responses to other events in our lives have been a bit tardy, to say the least.
Brothers and sisters, I have been wanting to write in support of Archbishop Cordileone for several weeks now. He has taken a lot of heat, in and out of the Church, for standing up for what's right. Of course, I am referring to his recent statement prohibiting Nancy Pelosi, the current Speaker of the House in Congress, from receiving Communion, the Holy Eucharist, in the Archdiocese of San Franciso.
Diocese of Fresno
Most Rev. Joseph V. Brennan, D.D.
