Pope Extends Power To Forgive Abortion To All Roman Catholic Priests

Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely to all Roman Catholic priests the power to forgive abortion, a right previously reserved for bishops or special confessors in most parts of the world.




Francis, who has made a more inclusive and forgiving Roman Catholic Church a characteristic of his papacy, made the announcement in a document known as an "apostolic letter" after Sunday's close of the Church's "Holy Year of Mercy".

He said he wanted to "restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life" but "there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with (God)".

Francis had already temporarily granted the power to all priests to give what is known as "sacramental absolution" for abortion during the Holy Year, from Dec. 8 to Nov. 20, but the solemn tone of his words in Monday's letter suggested that change would last for at least the rest of his papacy.

"I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion. The provision I had made in this regard, limited to the duration of the Extraordinary Holy Year, is hereby extended ...," he said.

In Roman Catholic teaching, abortion is such a serious sin that those who procure or perform it bring automatic excommunication on themselves as they are knowingly committing a sin the Church considers grave.

In the past, only a bishop or a designated special confessor of a diocese could grant absolution for an abortion and lift excommunication.

Although bishops in some dioceses in developed countries such as the United States and Britain had already delegated this authority to parish priests, the old practice was still in effect in most of the world.

At a news conference, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, who oversaw Holy Year activities, said the new norms applied to all Roman Catholics involved in an abortion, including the woman and medical staff.

He said that the absolution granted by any priest would also trigger the simultaneous lifting of excommunication. Previously in many places in the world, even if the absolution was granted by a priest, it was the bishop's task to lift that.

Fisichella said canon (Church) law would now have to be changed to reflect the pope's letter. Papal pronouncements of a pastoral or administrative nature and which do not touch basic Church doctrine are included automatically canon law updates.

Fisichella rejected suggestions that some people could see the move as putting abortion on the same level as lesser sins.

"There is no type of laxness here," he said, repeating the pope's words that while abortion was very grave, there was no sin that could not be touched by God's mercy.

In a document last year, Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies and said he had "met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision".

In the letter, the pope, the first from Latin America, also said the Church would hold a yearly "World Day of the Poor" on a Sunday in November to bring more attention to the world's neediest.

      Yes Christ gave his apostles(humans)power to forgive sins. Read John 20:19-23 and stop showcasing your ignorance.

    9. In Luke 11:27...As Jesus taught, a woman in the crowd called out, "Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you." And Jesus replied, "Blessed RATHER are those who hear the word of God and obey it." In Mark 3:35. A crowd was sitting round him (Jesus), and they told him, ‘Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.’ ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle round him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and MOTHER.’ John1:14 - Jesus is the word of God made flesh. Only those that obey God's word can be called his brethren. The holy spirit formed Jesus even though he was in the womb of a woman. Mary was a sinner like everyone else in the world and waited for the salvation promised to the Jews. Mary DOES NOT have the power to intercede to God on a man's behalf. God is holy and not a man. Unless God empowers a man and declares it he can't carry out such a holy ministry. Even the high priests in old testament were appointed as God clearly stated. Read your bible! The Holy spirit intercedes for us Romans 8:26 and Jesus as our high priest intercedes for us Hebrews 7:25. Even Jesus said we do not need to pray to him but directly to God IN HIS NAME. John 16:23. When you ask Mary to intercede on your behalf you are doing something that holds no weight before God because she has no power to do that and it isnt biblical. Please if you want to reply me, just like I did, show me scriptures where Mary was given the power by God to intercede on behalf of men. You would find none. Mary was blessed and favoured of God to have the honour of being the earthly mother of Jesus, the son of God but she was not given any spiritual authority over mankind. Please read your bible guys. The Catholic doctrine is a lie from the devil to make men believe they know God yet missing the very essence of God's salvation. No need to reply with insults, use the scriptures. There is also no such thing as 'the pentecostal church'. The devils plan was/is to create sects within the church and this was easy for him because the nature of the natural man is to think and try to show that he is superior to another man whether in knowledge or other abilities. Unfortunately there is a lot of carnality in the church. The church of God is one. study the word of God for yourself and you would be directed by his spirit into the truth.

    11. People will be quoting John 20 vs 21-23 out of context...Then he took a deep breath and breathed into them. “Receive the Holy Spirit,” he said. “If you forgive someone’s sins, they’re gone for good. If you don’t forgive sins, what are you going to do with them?”
      John 20:22‭-‬23 MSG.....how many fathers in the catholic church don receive holy spirit? With the evidence of speaking in tongues...

    1. Check your bible, jesus gave the apostles the gift of absolution. The power to bind and to loose. God had sent jesus to forgive sins but aftet his resurrection, jesus told the apostles, "as the father has sent me, even so i send u". When he said this, he breathed on them and said "recieve the holy spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained" (john 20:21-23).
      This is one of the only two times we are told that God breathed on man, the other being in Genesis 2:7 when he made man a living soul. It emphasizes how important the establishment of the sacrament of penance is.

    8. Anon 8:56 just made me laugh, but the power your pastors are using to perform miracles and sow seed didn't die with the early apostles.
      Hahahahaha!

      Delete
    9. Anon 8:56, there are lots of holes in your logic that the power died with the apostle. This is simply not true. Some powers must have died with the apostles such as the ability to write scriptures but the power necessary to maintain the church as a living, spiritual society had to be passed down from generation to generation hence Jesus went on to tell the apostle to "go ye, make disciples of all nations. It would take much time to do this so he promised them assisstance: lo, i am with you always, to the end of time"(matt. 28:19-20.

      Just as the apostles were to carry christ's message to the whole world, so they were to carry his forgiveness. If one follows the logic that christ has died and hence all sins have been forgiven then why do we still have the need to pray? We shld go ahead and keep sinning cos christ has covered it. As The sacrament of baptism is important for absolution from original sin, so is the sacrament of penance important for the absolution of continous sin.

      True Christianity is the New Testament ...from the Acts 2, what they observed and practiced. Every other thing you are on all Ian.

    17. That fathers and sisters commit sins doesn't mean they are not called. We are all of the flesh and are bound to commit sin. You follow and obey the word of God that is preached to you. No body says you should worship a priest. Just as Jesus gave his apostles the power of absolution, whatever is done before or after confessions has nothing to do with you. If you do so with willingness of heart leave God to be the Judge to his priest the apostle.

      We all should respect our different religious differences. No church is better than the other.

      I believe in one God, the father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. And his Jesus Christ his only son, our Lord; who Was conceived by the holy spirit, born if the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried, he descended into he'll, on the third day he rose again from the dead, he ascended into heaven, and sitted at d right hand of God the father almighty, from thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

      I believe in the Holy spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

That's my creators mother no pastors wife equates her; Catholics are been mocked that we count beads, now TB Joshua is counting bead lol, we're mocked that we receive holy communion now all the pentecostal churches have communion services.

Hail Mary full of grace the lord is with thee Luke1:28, blessed art thou among women luke1:41-42 -48,blessed is the fruit of thy womb jesus Luke1:42 holy Mary mother of God pray for us sinners now and @ the hour of our death Amen; Luke 2:35, John2:3-5; Every version in Rosary is from the bible; from the beginning which is our Lord's prayer, I believe in God which is professing of Catholic faith, Glory be to the father which is adoring Christ, God and holy spirit; that's three persons in one God; in Rosary, we have 3 mysteries which is picked from the bible; joyful mystery is all about the birth of Jesus Christ. First from the annuciation of the birth of our Lord Jesus by the angel to Mary, second visitation of Mary to Elizabeth, third birth of Jesus Christ, fourth presentation of the baby Jesus in the temple, 5th finding of Jesus in the temple @ the age of 12year where he was teaching to elders; Sorrowful mystery is from the bible, first Agony in the garden matthew 26 from 36 to 46, 2nd, scorging at the temple Mark15:1-16, 3rd, crowing with torns I guess we are familiar with that too mt27:27-31, 4th, carrying of the cross, 5th crucifixion of the lord; another mystery is Glorious Mystery one is Resurrection of Jesus, we know the verse,2nd is ascension of Jesus to heaven Lk 24:44-54, 3rd descent of the holy spirit on the apostle, 4th this is catholic history of Mary Assumption into heaven, 5th the coronation of Mary into heaven; we believe that the holy mother continues her maternal roles in heaven; as the mother our creator; most pencostal go to their pastors wife for prayers. That's my creators mother no pastors wife equates her; Catholics are been mocked that we count beads, now TB Joshua is counting bead lol, we're mocked that we receive holy communion now all the pentecostal churches have communion services. Who are we mocking. Leave catholic alone, since you're guys have the key to the kingdom of God; Chi Austin!

  33. IF THIS IS THE TRUE REPRESENTATION OF CHRISTIANITY, I'LL RATHER BE AN ATHIEST!

    And guess what, The Catholic Church, is the largest Christian church, with more than 1.27 billion members worldwide... What does that tell you?

    I repeat, if Roman catholic represents true Christianity, I can say without fear and with absolute certainty that Christianity as a whole is a false religion...

  34. My fellow catholic why most you keep explaining to people what the people is saying, you and i understand very well what our pope meant by absolution and not what this people here think, someone one his talking about worshiping Mary, sorry we dont worship mary we ask for her intercession, get your point people coming on social media to talk rubbish about a man of God, abeg no body is begging anybody to come join the church, have you ever see catholic sharing handbills for people to come worship in the church, if are attending before and choice to stop, come upper week the church will be full, Jesus gave the power to the first Peter to forgive sins and he did, was Peter God, read your bible and stop saying Catholic dont read bible we do more than any churches in the world.

    Get you point and stop talking about a faith you know nothing about, Long live the Papa of all time.

    Waiting for the new year and the new Them, year of mercy of great in every area.

    1. Mary does not have the power to intercede to God on a man's behalf. Read your bible! The Holy spirit intercedes for us Romans 8:26 and Jesus as our high priest intercedes for us Hebrews 7:25. Even Jesus said we do not need to pray to him but directly to God in his name John 16:23. When you ask Mary to intercede on your behalf you are doing something that holds no weight before God because she has no power to do that. Please if you want to reply me, just like I did, show me scriptures where Mary was given the power by God to intercede on behalf of men. The Catholic doctrine is a lie from the devil to make men believe they know God yet missing the very essence of God's salvation. No need to reply with curse words, use the scriptures. Have a great day.

    Forgiveness is surely from God and God has given us the power to forgive whoever hurt us. So the Pope is an instrument in God's hands.

  37. When I saw this post I just knew that our evil separated brethren who prefer to worship the ground their fake pastors walk would come here to showcase their lack of understanding of Catholic doctrine.
    They are always in a hurry to persecute Catholics who gave them the Bible they carry up and down. But they don't have mouth where Muslims are because they know the consequences. They carry the Bible up and down but they can't cool down to understand what is written in it. Didn't Jesus give his apostles (who are men) the power to forgive sin?? "...If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained" (John 20:21-23).
    My dear separated brethren, go and read your bible, you hear!!!

  38. I don't blame you protestants. It's because Catholics are peace-loving people that's why una get mouth. If we all carried that small dagger like
    Many of you haven't recovered from following false prophesies from your mushroom churches started by unemployed men and yet you are here saying what you don't know about the Church Jesus Himself founded. God is indeed merciful.
    Keep being part of the gates of hell ok. Our Lord Jesus Christ expected that His Church would be persecuted, but He assured us that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church.
    So I won't disturb myself with all these ungrounded things you people are saying.
    Also for your own good, don't call Mary's name anyhow. Even if you don't have respect for your earthly mothers, you should have some respect for the Mother of our Lord.

  41. In Luke 11:27...As Jesus taught, a woman in the crowd called out, "Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you." And Jesus replied, "Blessed RATHER are those who hear the word of God and obey it." In Mark 3:35. A crowd was sitting round him (Jesus), and they told him, ‘Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.’ ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle round him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and MOTHER.’ John1:14 - Jesus is the word of God made flesh. Only those that obey God's word can be called his brethren. The holy spirit formed Jesus even though he was in the womb of a woman. Mary was a sinner like everyone else in the world and waited for the salvation promised to the Jews. Mary DOES NOT have the power to intercede to God on a man's behalf. God is holy and not a man. Unless God empowers a man and declares it he can't carry out such a holy ministry. Even the high priests in old testament were appointed as God clearly stated. Read your bible! The Holy spirit intercedes for us Romans 8:26 and Jesus as our high priest intercedes for us Hebrews 7:25. Even Jesus said we do not need to pray to him but directly to God IN HIS NAME. John 16:23. When you ask Mary to intercede on your behalf you are doing something that holds no weight before God because she has no power to do that and it isnt biblical. Please if you want to reply me, just like I did, show me scriptures where Mary was given the power by God to intercede on behalf of men. You would find none. Mary was blessed and favoured of God to have the honour of being the earthly mother of Jesus, the son of God but she was not given any spiritual authority over mankind. Please read your bible guys. The Catholic doctrine is a lie from the devil to make men believe they know God yet missing the very essence of God's salvation. No need to reply with insults, use the scriptures. There is also no such thing as 'the pentecostal church'. The devils plan was/is to create sects within the church and this was easy for him because the nature of the natural man is to think and try to show that he is superior to another man whether in knowledge or other abilities. Unfortunately there is a lot of carnality in the church. The church of God is one. study the word of God for yourself and you would be directed by his spirit into the truth.

  45. Nonsense religion called Catholic I'll rather read my bible and pray at home than to go bow my head or knee to a statue all in the name of Mary God's mother.
    Pls where in the bible is it written we should bow to an image it Bible even forbids it in the old testament.
    Where in the bible is it written we shud HV knights Catholic church if you are a deep member you'll see and kW the number of secret societies in that church but no they are so brain washed to back off.
    Only God forgives sins you sin against him not a pope or priest or bishop.

    The only sin God gave his apostles right to forgive was those a fellow human sinned against you, you forgive and move on not to sin against God and than instead of asking God for forgiveness you go to a priest who himself is a sinner, who is chasing and fucking gals up and down and pretends when he comes out to be a saint.
    I am saying this as a former Catholic member who was and is still chased by a priest to be his gf. If you knew you will be horny with erections why go to be a priest? That was the day I gave up in this church and their blind leading doctrine.
    Catholic church being the largest and first does not mean they are right they follow a doctrine different from what the bible teaches and even forbides.
    Imagine when someone is dying you are coming to count rosary instead of firing serious prayer to God for help b4 you end the rosary and all what not the person is dead and cold. The priest that blesses marriages and gives advice and preach on marriage they ain't married so how can they advice someone when they ain't married most of you will say they are trained and taught but wouldn't it be better the advice coming from sm1 who is married in real life with experience cos he is in that shoe he can tell better.
    Am happy for my friends that saw the light with me and left Catholic church.

    My bf was a Catholic but no more I told him I can't date a Catholic he asked why I told him my reasons, he saw the truth and left the church for redeem now he reads the bible with the devotional open heavens more than me sef because he now feels like something was missing in him and he was in the dark and now found light.

  51. With what am reading am scared of this generation.
    Pple should live a life of Christ and shun sin. What you do not understand please do not comment hatefully in ignorance cos we shall all be judged by our words.
    Let's not abuse God's mercy that after all I will ask for forgiveness.
    The Pope has said this and those that understand it are glad and to those that don't and never want to please keep your opinion else you commit sin with your profane choice of words as profanity is also a sin.
    For those talking about speaking in tongues I pray thee to read again in Acts what happened. For where you speak without being understood nor interpreted..don't think we are getting it right.
    God is love so lets preach nd live the love of God in this blog nd stop using our fingers nd data to damn our souls for we are all God's children nd he loves us all.
    We should not presume to know God more than himself by saying its in the bible but LIVE AS HE LIVED IN THE BIBLE for that is what makes us all his apostles.
    And yes..am a Christian nd worship with the Catholic Church.
    Peace of Christ be unto us all. Amen.
