In a broad-ranging interview, Pope Francis has underlined the need for the Church to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful. “Ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all, the Pope insists in the course of a 12,000-word interview. Conducted by Father Antonio Spadaro, the editor of the Italian Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica, the interview was translated and published simultaneously by other Jesuit publications, including the American magazine America.
Thanks for the ping.
And...The Vatican vets all content in Civilta Cattolica, and the pope approved the Italian version of the article, which America magazine, the Jesuit journal in the U.S., translated into English. (http://news.yahoo.com/pope-criticizes-church-emphasis-abortion-gays-220829409.html)
Thanks for the link. It sounds like a “hate the sin; love the sinner” message.
