Nancy Pelosi has been locking horns with San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. The good archbishop forbade that Holy Communion be administered to Nancy Pelosi within his diocese wherein is her residence. He requires that the sacrament of penance be observed for the “serious sins” of supporting abortion and homosexual behavior, including same-sex “marriage.” Besides these, Pelosi runs afoul of Catholicism for advocating that women enter the priesthood.

What is penance? The Catholic Church observes seven sacraments: baptism, confirmation, the Eucharist or Holy Communion, marriage, confession or penance, ordination or holy orders, and extreme unction. Most Protestants recognize only the two sacraments in which Jesus participated: baptism (although it was his disciples and not himself who baptized) and Holy Communion. Rather than a confession to a Catholic priest and submission to performing penitential acts prescribed by the priest, Protestants practice confession to the Lord and repentance. Repentance means turning away from evil.
