Madonna asks Pope to reconsider her ex-communication. Singer Madonna has asked Pope Francis to reconsider her ex-communication
American pop singer Madonna has invited Pope Francis to meet to reconsider her ex-communication. The artist publicly addressed the pontiff on Twitter.
Born Madonna Louise Ciccone asked for a second chance almost two decades after the Vatican excommunicated her, denouncing “blasphemous” behavior on stage. The 63-year-old celebrity called herself a good Catholic and also stated that she was ready to fix everything.
“I was excommunicated from the Catholic Church three times. It’s not fair,” Madonna said. Pope Francis has not yet replied to the singer.
Madonna was criticized by the Catholic Church after a scandalous performance in Rome in 2006, during which she was “crucified” on stage. The late Cardinal Ercilio Tonini said at the time that the queen of pop had gone “too far” and called her actions “blasphemy.”
