This post has nothing new to say, but is worth reading (yeah...I know)
This post is inspired by this post from Fr. Z (go read it here). Here is an excerpt:
Admission of people to Communion who are objectively committing a sin (whether it is adultery or contemplating suicide, etc) has implications for what we believe the Eucharistic to be, about who we believe Christ to be. Was the Lord (God) wrong when he taught about the indissolubility of marriage? If He was wrong, then is He divine? Was the Lord wrong about eating His Body and drinking His Blood? Is that just idolatry? If objective adulterers can be admitted to Communion, then why can’t those contemplating suicide be anointed first? Why not every sacrament for everyone? What are sacraments anyway?
This is why the Five Dubia are so important and why so many desire clear answers. It’s not about a lack of “mercy”.Fr. Z features Ross Douthat's latest column on Francis. Go read that here
Pope Francis' heresy in Amoris Laetitia has now led to the legitimizing of euthanasia by imparting the Church's blessing to those guilty of suicide and it has caused a schism along a second front!
This is happening in Canada, by the way.
So, the Church has been dividing, in recent weeks, along the issue of Communion to Adulterers.
Now, as seen in Canada, the Church is being divided along the issue of Suicide!
So, Cardinal Burke has said that the Formal Correction will come after Epiphany. And he has said that a Pope who formally professes heresy is automatically no longer the Pope.
So, what is Pope Francis? Has he always held these beliefs? If so, it would seem he could not be validly elected Pope in the first place, if he was a heretic at the Conclave that chose him. So...what's what??!
