US President Joe Biden went to church in Wilmington, Delaware, on Saturday, following a decision by U.S. Catholic clergy that may deprive Holy Communion of pro-abortion politicians.

Biden, who is in favor of the right to abortion, and his wife Jill went to St. Joseph's Church after passing through the cemetery where the graves of Biden's first wife, Nilia, their daughter Naomi and their son Bo are located.

A devout Catholic, the American president goes to church at least once a week. At the same time, however, it supports the historic decision of the US Supreme Court, which in 1973 legalized abortion.

The USCCB on Thursday voted overwhelmingly (168 votes in favor and 55 against) a text on "the importance of Holy Communion in the life of the Church", which may result in their inability to receive Holy Communion those politicians who support abortion.

When asked about the bishops' decision, Biden replied: "It is a private matter, I do not think it will happen."

The Vatican has already voiced opposition to the USCCB decision, and in May called on US bishops to be vigilant about possible measures to "state the legitimacy of abortion and euthanasia." or other non-pecuniary damage ".

However, American priests are also divided, with some warning against turning the Eucharist "into a weapon."

Each bishop can decide who will receive Holy Communion in his church.

In 2019, an American priest refused to communicate with Joe Biden because of his views. He had then recalled that he had received Holy Communion from the pope himself.
