Yesterday at the National Catholic Prayer (virtual) Breakfast, Attorney General William Barr was honored with an award and he gave a brief speech, online. The President also gave a video speech.
At The Right Scoop we see a video of the disaster who is pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi ridicule the NCPB and AG Barr. She is talking to St. Simone of Nuns On The Bus, who promoted the pro-abortion Obamacare.
I join you in expressing dismay that that National Catholic Prayer Breakfast would be honoring someone who doesn’t, you know – what would Christ do? We always say that. There’s a big difference in between what Christ would do and what they’re honoring this morning.
I wonder if Pelosi – a living argument for term limits – has been so long separated from a page of any catechism, or from any decent sermon, that she has now, in her highly advanced years, actually forgotten what it is to be Catholic.
Is that possible?
As a youngster Nancy Pelosi probably get her catechism and, since she is really old now, it might have been pretty good catechism, decent formation in the Faith. But the Faith, the fides quae, is like a language: use it or lose it.
People who grow up in their native country, speaking their native language, can transplant to a new place and, over time, start to forget their mother tongue. They retain the accent, but when you speak to them in their first language, they will freeze up (except in some standard, common phrases), or even respond in a mix or in the tongue of their last decades of life rather than their first.
The interesting thing is that they can recover it… provided they have again some constant exposure.
I cannot draw hard conclusions about what Nancy Pelosi truly believes. I can draw some conclusions about the despicable things she says and does even while claiming outwardly to be a devout Catholic. She has retained an accent, but she doesn’t seem to have an active use of the content of her Faith.
Perhaps we could pray for Guardian Angel to prompt her to quit public role, to retire quietly, and to reflect on the state of her soul and the damage she has inflicted on our collective Catholic identity as Americans and Catholics.
AG Barr’s speech begins after 00:47.
