Pope Francis exhorted the faithful to avail themselves of confession in a statement on November 20th.
How did the economic and social libs miss that? Dittos for the drive by media that hung on every anti-capitalistic word in Francis’ recent exhortation Evangelium Gaudii? No mention of “trickle down economics” in this sermon, eh?
“Receive the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven; whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.”
“Today,” lamented the Pope, “so many people do not understand the ecclesial dimension of forgiveness, because individualism and subjectivism dominate and we, Christians, undergo their influence, too.”
Wow! When the modernist-bent Bishop of Rome goes wobbly on the left with a traditional teaching, they flee like, well, the devil from Holy Water.
