“We All Make Mistakes” – Empty Words from Pope Francis

“The Lord always forgives us, he never gets tired,” Pope Francis wrote to inmates on Gorgona island, Italy, in a letter transmitted by the Albania born Cardinal Ernest Simoni who celebrated Mass in their prison.

“We all ask for forgiveness for our mistakes and we make a path of reintegration, so as not to make any more mistakes,” Francis added speaking about a “maternal closeness of the Church” to prisoners calling jails “places of pain and redemption.”

But these are empty words in the face of the Church's zero-mercy approach applied against collaborators who have “made mistakes” committing abuses.

"Mistakes" has a far more perfidious spread, @eticasanova. Beyond just "sin", which rightly encompasses them, "mistakes" are the new euphemism for purely secular crimes, regardless of religious belief.

If you steal a horse, nearly every court, regardless of the country's dominant religion would all agree that's a serious crime. However, by "re-labelling" the act as a "mistake", it implies the act was accidental in nature, rather than deliberate. This is is a fiendishly clever way of re-shaping how our society thinks about and subsequently addresses crime.

After all, mistakes are invariably treated more leniently than deliberate wrongs.

Whatever the objections to Francis, he is very good on frequent Confession.

Confession without repentace is sacrilege.
"Mistakes", that's how newagers call sin; and newagers are the frontline of the New World Religion, masonry for the rabble
