(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 20 – Joe Biden went to church regularly also on Sunday in his city of Wilmington (Delaware) after the challenge launched by the American Catholic bishops, who aim to ban the Eucharist to politicians in favor of the right of abortion, like him. President and First Lady Jill attended mass in St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church and then paid homage to the graves of Biden’s first wife and his two children.
Friday Biden seemed to exclude the possibility of being forbidden from communion, calling it “a private matter”.
It is up to the individual bishops to decide who can receive the Eucharist or not. In 2019, a bishop of a Catholic church in South Carolina denied her to Biden for her position on the termination of pregnancy. (HANDLE).
