Francis Preaches Cheap Absolution
He urged the bishops to “be merciful” and to “always forgive” [only politically correct sins]. Francis never forgives when someone is a Catholic.
“When a member of the faithful goes to confession, he or she comes to seek forgiveness, to ask for the Father’s caress," he romanticised the faithful and accused the priests, "We, pointing an accusing finger, say: ‘How many times? And how did you do it?’ No, not that."
According to this advice, confessions would become an empty ritual and the priest a machine who produces cheap "absolutions."
Falling prey to his usual confusion, Francis insisted that we must observe Canon Law, "because it is important, BUT the shepherd's heart goes beyond that! Take a risk. Take a risk on the side of forgiveness. Always. Always forgive in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.”
Cheap absolutions are not a risk but clerical laziness.
