BOSTON, Massachusetts, October 6, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- Jesuit priest and papal confidant Father Anthony Spadaro said that Pope Francis holds that the Catholic Church can no longer set down general norms that apply to entire groups of people.

Spadaro, editor of the Italian magazine La Civiltà Cattolica, made the comment today at a conference at Boston College where liberal Cardinals met with dissident theologians to discuss strategies for implementing Pope Francis’ controversial teachings on marriage and family in dioceses across the United States.

The Jesuit priest told attendees that Amoris Laetitia, the Pope's 2016 teaching on marriage and family, recognizes that people living in "irregular" family situations, such as the divorced and remarried living in adultery, "can be living in God's grace, can love and can also grow in a life of grace."

"We must conclude that the Pope realizes that one can no longer speak of an abstract category of persons and ... [a] praxis of integration in a rule that is absolutely to be followed in every instance,"

Article: "Father Anthony Spadaro said that Pope Francis holds that the Catholic Church can no longer set down general norms that apply to entire groups of people."

Should have read: "Father Anthony (2+2=5) Spadaro said that he and the 'mercy earth-mother church' of Pope Francis no longer believe in The Ten Commandments, nor in the immutable Teachings of Jesus Christ, nor in the De Fide Doctrines of The One True Church. We know better than God (if he exists at all that is)."

We can compare and contrast the Pope with Marxism.

Francis promulgates Relativism. So what is the point of the Church, Francis?

Compare but not a lot of contrast. The beard, maybe.

>>said that Pope Francis holds that the Catholic Church can no longer set down general norms that apply to entire groups of people.

And just like that, the Roman Church absolutely ceased to be Christian by their own admission.

The law forbidding adultery, like the law forbidding murder, is an exceptionless norm.

This is what the Catholic Church teaches, and this is what I, as the lowliest RCIA team member, teach.

God loves sinners.

And God does not tolerate sin.

Not. At. all.

Is CCC #882 still valid?

#882 “For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.”

True. Those Caribbean Islands that Hurricane Irma did not demolish are probably still packed with the idle and pretentious rich.
