La Pelosi apparently was under the impression that she and Pope Benedict were going to be muy simpatico during their audience today at noon Vatican time. Not so much! According to this statement from the Vatican:

Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.

His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development.

Guess ole Nancy's foray into moral theology was a big fat bust, eh? Thank you God for the excellent Benedict, a Pope who doesn't equivocate, nor is he cowed by someone of enormous self-importance such as the (as described in a UK newspaper) "ghastly" Nancy Pelosi.

As I mentioned on other blogs, it would have served her right if His Holiness had met her with a bell, book and candle.
