Report: Pope Francis Shocks Seminarians – Starts Hurling F-Bombs During Private Papal Audience

Pope Francis

Via Church Militant.

Seminarians from Barcelona say they were scandalized when Pope Francis reportedly used the f-word and other expletives at a papal audience in Rome.

According to testimonies from the seminarians, Francis ranted against “f***ing careerists who f*** up the lives of others.” The pope criticized “those who climb to show their a**,” the Italian media outlet Daily Compass reported on Monday.

The trainee priests were shocked when Francis also reportedly insisted that priests should never deny absolution to penitents in the confessional under any circumstances.

Eyewitnesses describe how the pontiff, at the audience on Dec. 10, tossed his prepared speech aside, saying that “it would have been boring.” Instead, Francis told the seminarians to ask him questions.

“After handing out the address prepared for the occasion, the pope engaged in dialogue with those present at the meeting,” the Holy See Press Office clarified.

It is not the first time this pope lost his cool in public.

Pope Francis slapped at a woman twice after she reached for him in St. Peter’s Square. It was a horrible display.

F-bombs aside.... Francis has consistently held that canon law should just be ignored whenever it is inconvenient. And the important thing is to make a person feel good, even if he or she is not actually in a state of grace.

Absolution doesn't forgive sins if the sinner isn't at least trying to quit living that sin. An alcoholic or addict who is struggling to live sober can be forgiven for slip-ups and encouraged to do the work, go to meetings, etc., with the promise that Christ's grace will help them reach the goal of sobriety. Come back to confession as often as you need to. Come when you don't.

But those who are living in persistent sin need to know hear that in order to be forgiven, they still have to repent. Words of absolution can't forgive hardened sinners.
Married couples using birth control....
Unmarried couples, living and sleeping together....
Homosexuals unwilling to give up the gay lifestyle....
Porn users who are unwilling to lock up their computers....

Automatically giving absolution to hardened cases doesn't forgive anything, and the priest who fails to give true counsel (even when it is hard to say) will have to answer to God for this.

"It is not enough to point the finger or attack those who do not think like us. That is a wretched tactic in today's political and cultural wars, but it cannot be the method of the Church."

Canon Law has always been about the saving of souls, first and foremost.

Regarding the practice of the Church, it protects the teachings of Christ from those who would like to feel "saved" while continuing to enjoy their sins.
It also protects the liberty of Christians against the tyranny of bully bishops and popes and parishioners.

It's one thing to apply canon law "pastorally," as intended. It's another thing to disregard canon law as useless or irrelevant.

Pope Benedict warned us to resist the "tyranny of relativism."

I don't want to accuse Pope Francis based on a slanderous article from Church Militant, but there are times when Francis appears to urge us to embrace the relativism. And it's disconcerting.
