His column was about how the Rite of Election for prospective converts is a decision that changes how they will live, and how our belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist must affect the way we live our lives.
Without naming her, Bishop Vasa quoted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's January disgraceful regurgitation of the tired pro-abortion cliche, if you are against abortion, don't have one, but don't tell somebody else what she may not do.
To that, Bishop Vasa answered:
"...to choose to terminate the life of another human being...is an unjust choice which is diametrically opposed to the clear and consistent teaching of the Catholic Church as well as to the clear and consistent teaching of God Himself in the Ten Commandments. The direct, intentional taking of the life of an innocent human being is inhumane and unjust. It is not just a choice!
"It is categorically impossible for the same person to state that he or she believes simultaneously both what the Catholic Church teaches and that abortion is just a choice. What we believe must inform what we do."
Some Californians lately have been moving to Bend, Oregon, which is in the Diocese of Baker, or building homes for retirement there. They will hear the truth about abortion from their Catholic bishop. That is a luxury these days, at least in some dioceses.
Why won't our Cardinal say it: "You can't be Catholic and pro-abortion!"
