Francis Perfectly Answered Dubia – Just Wrongly

The Vatican released Francis' seven-page response to five Cardinals' Dubia following their publication on October 2. The writing style of the in Spanish text is of Francis' trusted ghostwriter Victor "Tucho" Fernández.

1. Whether Divine Revelation can be reinterpreted according to cultural changes?

Francis replied: “While it is true that Divine Revelation is immutable and always binding, the Church must be humble and recognise that it never exhausts its unfathomable richness and needs to grow in its understanding.”

[Plain text: yes]

2. Whether homosex unions can be blessed and there is good in sinful situations?

Francis replied that homosex unions should not be called marriage however in dealing with people “pastoral charity must not be lost” made up of kindness, patience, tenderness and encouragement, “We cannot become judges who deny, reject, exclude.” Pastoral prudence must discern forms of blessings, requested by one or more persons that do not transmit a mistaken conception of marriage. Persons in objectively morally not acceptable situations should not be treated as sinners.

[Plain text: yes]

3. Whether synodality replaces the authority of the Papacy?

Francis replied that the Dubia submitted by Cardinals themselves claim some form of synodality in the exercise of Papal ministry.

[Plain text: remains unanswered but implies a no]

4. Whether the Church can ordain women to the priesthood?

Francis replied that “a clear and authoritative doctrine about the exact nature of a ‘definitive statement’ has not yet been exhaustively developed.”

[Plain text: yes]

5. Whether a penitent [=fornicator] can be absolved from sins without contrition?

Francis replies that repentance is necessary for the validity of sacramental absolution, “but” the confessional is not a custom house, “Already approaching confession is a symbolic expression of repentance.”

[Plain text: yes]

The Pope doesn’t have the moral integrity to be honest. He hides behind unclear language, like a child who thinks he is clever. This is purposeful so he cannot be said to directly contradict the Christian Faith.

Well... a "normal people" could fail (as in this case) in "moral and faith"... A POPE, CAN NOT. period.
Dogma about in-fa-lly-bi-li-ty takes care of this.
P. O'B
Why all the fuss about these damn homos? Why? Because the Church hierarchy is riddled with them and aggressively pushes their evil.
porta folio manager
No. u fall short. it pushes it because THEY are NOT "THE" Church AND this sect is owned by "the powers behind"

It has been almost exactly seven years since the first set of dubia. So Francis has seven years to ignore this latest set!

The only ones 'confused' by Pope Francis and the synod are those unwilling to listen.

Everyone understands, Francis goes pro-gay

Here on Vatican Bandstand the Dubia Brothers are singing, but Francis doesn't like their tune. He would rather dance to a different song, alas.

The prophecies of St Francis of Assisi continue to make more & more sense. THE PROPHECIES OF ST. FRANCIS (catholictradition.org)
Prophecy no. 2. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death."
Prophecy no. 7. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer."
Those days have arrived!!!!

The words of Archbishop Fulton Sheen, “The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.”
“Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.”
“The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches …More

“Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.”

“The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.”

“A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.” See: Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen – 1948 Prophecy of the False Prophet and False (Counterfeit) Church

@Tony M -I believe all these prophecies, but I believe that Bergoglio is actually the anti-Christ. One of the instruments of the anti-Christ is this "synod" which will attempt, and ultimatly fail very badly, to destroy the Catholic Faith.
If Bergoglio DOES allow for the blessings of homos in some way, he will have forfeited the Papacy, and good Cardinals and Catholics should convene in Rome to …More

If Bergoglio DOES allow for the blessings of homos in some way, he will have forfeited the Papacy, and good Cardinals and Catholics should convene in Rome to declair him a heretic, and elect a new Pope to oust Francis and his people.

We are Remnant Church, let us learn from St. Elijah who dealt with false prophets of his time. How many Jews did God preserve at that time? How many knees did not bow to Baal?

The left do understand Francis well
Tony M
And so do we on the right.
Kenjiro M. Yoshimori
Heretic, apostate Pope Francis.....because his # 1,2,3,5 to the dubia answers are total heresy.
foward
A pope cannot be heretical. Full stop.
Otherwise, the Church is not the Church.
So there is a problem to be solved here.
Kenjiro M. Yoshimori
"A pope cannot be heretical. Full stop.
Otherwise, the Church is not the Church."------But Bergoglio is a heretic, proven by the response to this Dubia, and many other incidents.
Tony M
Solution to the problem.....he is not the Pope.
Same process as solving a mathematical problem.
There can only be one answer. Just as 1+1 cannot equal 3 whatever way you look at it.....a heretic cannot be a Pope whatever way you look at it. Problem solved!!!
Ivan Tomas
And now what, the dubia cardinals?
What's your next step?
foward
The steps are over.
