Skip to comments.[Catholic Caucus] Francis Encourages Lisbon Cardinal to Keep Promoting Mortal Sin
Posted on 07/13/2018 9:16:35 AM PDT by ebb tide
Pope Francis personally thanked Lisbon Cardinal Manuel Clemente for propagating the immoral teachings contained in Amoris Laetita in a Lenten letter to the Lisbon priests.
Clemente follows the heterodox Buenos Aires guidelines approved by Francis.
Francis June 26 letter to the "beloved Brother Cardinal" was published by Clemente on July 12 on Patriarcado-Lisboa.pt.
Francis calls Clemente's controversial text a "profound reflexion" which "fills me with joy".
Although Clemente promotes sin, Francis calls him a "shepherd who accompanies the faithful" [into the abyss] and encourages Clemente "to integrate the fragility [adultery] which shows itself in many forms in couples.
At the end of the letter Francis does not impart his apostolic blessing.
I hope the Pope at least got a good lunch or a tip on a horse for his endorsement.
If you’re not an adulterer accepting communion, then your panties shouldn’t be in a bunch.
Last I checked, we will get judged individually and not at a group discount.
Now i’ve gotta run. I’ve got a neighbor to sleep with, er, I mean help her with her car.
I’m Catholic. But the bible comes before all denominations.
Follow what it says, stop being so worried about who’s getting the host that shouldn’t unless you’re giving it to them.
And go out and get some fresh air and maybe a jog :)
So I guess you're OK with the sacrilege of the Body and Blood of our Lord as long as you are not personally involved?
