Open Letter to Pope Francis

Your Holiness,

Pope John Paul II excommunicated Bishop Marcel Lefebvre for his behavior that was inconsistent with Catholic principles.  Mere preaching against Bishop Marcel Lefebvre’s behavior could not adequately nourish Catholics’ faith that Catholic principles are precious.  Actions speak louder than words.

The sanctity of human life is a core Catholic principle.

On September 15, 2021, Your Holiness preached that abortion “is more than a problem, it is a murder … whoever performs an abortion kills, any way you look at it.”

Yet Your Holiness has not excommunicated any Catholic politician for legislating or advocating abortion for any or no reason at any time up to the instant of birth.  For legislating or advocating the requirement that Catholic taxpayers pay for abortions.  For legislating or advocating the requirement that Catholic churches, schools, hospitals, doctors, and nurses provide abortion services.

And Your Holiness has not excommunicated any Catholic bishop or priest for knowingly serving Holy Communion to those Catholic politicians.

And Your Holiness has not instructed Catholic bishops and priests to refrain from knowingly serving Holy Communion to those Catholic politicians.

And, if Your Holiness excommunicated those Catholic politicians, bishops, and priests, Your Holiness would save countless human lives from murder each year.

And, if Your Holiness instructed Catholic bishops and priests to refrain from knowingly serving Holy Communion to those Catholic politicians, Your Holiness would save countless human lives from murder each year.

May Your Holiness soon act to adequately nourish Catholics’ faith that Catholic principles are precious.  Humanity needs Catholicism.
