Rep. Pelosi meets with Pope Francis
October 11, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: The Speaker of the House was in Rome to address the Pre-COP26 Parliamentary Meeting. ( COP26 is the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.)
The meeting took place a week Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco launched a campaign of prayer and fasting for her conversion of heart on abortion.
On Saturday evening, Pelosi attended Mass at St. Patrick’s church in Rome, but was forced to leave because of a “security incident.” Father Stephen Petroff said: “She was going to do our second reading today, but of course her safety is most important.”
Joan Lewis, the veteran EWTN correspondent in Rome, told the Catholic News Agency that the “security incident” was not related to Pelosi’s appearance, but to a large anti-lockdown demonstration in the neighborhood of the church.
