MADRID, Spain (LifeSiteNews) – European soccer giant Real Madrid C.F. took home the continent’s coveted UEFA Champion’s League trophy Tuesday, offering the prestigious prize, along with the team’s earlier Spanish league victory, to the Virgin of Almudena in Madrid.

After successfully fending off Liverpool F.C. in a tightly fought final in Paris’ Stade de France on May 28, pipping their opponents 1–0, Real Madrid secured the title for the fourteenth time in its history, double that of the second most successful European team, AC Milan.

Returning home on May 29, the victors were greeted by thousands of jubilant fans in the Spanish capital, where that same evening the team brought both their Champions League and national LaLiga trophies to Almudena Cathedral, the archdiocesan seat in Madrid, offering them to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has told Nancy Pelosi, a pro-abortion Democrat, not to present herself for Holy Communion. 

The archbishop is doing this to not only protect our Lord from sacrilege, but also to call Nancy Pelosi to repent from the grave sin of promoting abortion and from the sacrilegious communions that follow.

Archbishop Cordileone will now encounter sustained pressure to roll-back his decision, so we must stand with him today.

SIGN and SHARE this petition to stand with Archbishop Corileone as protects our Lord and Nancy Pelosi from further sacrilegious communions. 

The Eucharist is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ and no Catholic who has committed a mortal sin is to receive Holy Communion until confessing that sin in the Sacrament of Confession.

Nancy Pelosi's soul is in grave danger, not least because of sacrilegious communions as she continues a career-long crusade in support of killing unborn babies, and so the archbishop has done the most charitable thing possible in calling her to repentance and barring her from Holy Communion until she repents.

We must stand with this brave shepherd today, whom the people of San Francisco are lucky to call their archbishop.

SIGN the petition to support Archbishop Cordileone's brave defense of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Pelosi said in March that that abortion “isn’t about what is your religious belief” and that “this really gets me burned up, in case you didn’t notice, because, again, I’m very Catholic – devout, practicing, all of that. They would like to throw me out, but I’m not going,” she joked, “because I don’t want to make their day."

What she doesn't understand is that her soul is at risk because of her support for spilling the innocent blood of unborn babies. 

In a letter last month to Pelosi, Archbishop Cordileone made clear that “should you [Pelosi] not [publicly] repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” 

In announcing that the Speaker of the House is barred from Holy Communion, Cordileone made clear that he "will continue to offer up prayer and fasting for you [Pelosi].”

This is the heart of a true shepherd - Cordileone is a father willing to undergo all manner of insults and ridicule from the media and lukewarm Catholics in order to call one of his flock back to the fold.

SIGN the petition today to stand with Archbishop Cordileone as he faces into a storm of criticism.

The team was met by Cardinal Carlos Osoro Sierra, Archbishop of Madrid, who blessed the team as they prayed for the “maternal protection of the Virgin Mary.” Welcoming the players with “affection and joy,” Sierra thanked the team for being ambassadors of the city in like manner with St. Isidore the Farmer, whom he said was “a simple man with presences on all continents.”

“It is stimulating to share a path with others, to support each other in the search for success,” the cardinal said.

The club has a long-standing relationship with Catholicism, with past team members also having offered previous wins to Our Lady. Indeed, the Real Madrid crest features the symbol of the Spanish Catholic monarchy, complete with cross.

Some of the current team are Catholics, including Croatian midfielder Luka Modric.

In 2014, then team captain Sergio Ramos, also a Catholic, described Real Madrid as “God’s team and the team of the world.”
