Is the Pope Catholic?

Is the Pope Catholic?

Pope Francis’ conciliatory language toward irregular sexual unions for the past two years has caused the fiercest fighting within the Catholic Church since Vatican II. These matters are the heart of the Church’s infallible teachings on faith and morals.On July 7, 2015, during Pope Francis’ outdoor celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Ecuador, he asked the hundreds of thousands of Hispanics in attendance to pray for the coming October 2015 “Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family” asking that “God might transform into a miracle even what might seem impure, scandalous or threatening.”

The statement drew cheers from Francis’ audience who may not have been catechized well enough to understand what he was asking of them – to pray that God facilitate the Synodic Bishops to relax the moral integrity of the teachings of the Catholic Church to deny the indissolubility of a Sacramental marriage, thereby permitting couples in invalid, irregular “second” marriages including those unions between same-sex partners, to be allowed to receive Holy Communion.
