Pope Francis - Please stop leading us into temptation!
Pope Francis continually seems to be leading people (even non-Catholics) into temptation.
As I mentioned in my post on The Sixth Petition (Lead us not into temptation), the Sixth Petition of the Our Father has a specific meaning. Instead of explaining the meaning, he wants to change the translation.
The German bishops want to take Amoris Laetitia another step further and give communion to non-Catholics (I think they should start with Confession and then adjuration) who happen to be married to Catholics. The article from the National Catholic Register puts it well:
The creation of a mess and then the refusal to clean up said mess is a pattern with this Pope.
After the meeting, the Holy See Press Office published a statement in Italian and German. The statement explains that “Pope Francis appreciates the ecumenical commitment of the German bishops and asks them to find, in a spirit of ecclesial communion, a result as unanimously as possible.” In other words, he refuses to resolve this disciplinary issue that is oh-so-closely connected to doctrine.
But ... we need to thank Pope Francis.
wait for it ...
He is doing us a favour!
Yep, when the Church survives such an awful leader, we have yet again proof that the Catholic Church is of Divine Origin, because a simple human organization would never survive such crappy leadership!
So the next time a ntCatholic complains about Pope Francis, change the topic to thanking him for proving that the Catholic Church is of Divine origin ... and for proving that the SSPX was right.
