Joe Biden will be received by the Pope on October 29

Joe Biden is a Catholic, and that had not failed to be reproached to him during the presidential campaign. He is even a devout practitioner, who rarely misses mass. But now, the President of the United States is also a supporter of the right to abortion, and in this is opposed to the bishops of his country.

The Conference of American Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted this summer by a large majority to draft a text on “the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church”, which could have the consequence of refusing it. policies supporting abortion. However, the Eucharist is a central rite in the Catholic faith.

For the Pope, abortion is “a murder”

And it is not in the Vatican that he will find support on this subject. While the White House confirmed that Joe Biden and his wife Jill would be received on October 29 by Pope Francis, the latter refused the USCCB project. The sovereign pontiff simply felt that the Church should not take a political position, while expressing his horror of abortion, which he compared to “murder”.

The subjects will not miss, however, in this meeting at the top. “They will discuss how to work together, with respect for human dignity, to end the Covid-19 pandemic, face the climate crisis, and take care of the less fortunate”, according to a press release from the Maison White.
