Supporting Pope Francis: New Website

09/10/2017Print This Post

The encyclical Amoris Laetitia expressed Pope Francis’ theme of mercy in relation to those in difficult family situations.  The opposition to some of its passages that was formed by a small minority of prelates – seen as a revolt by some – has now sparked a counter-movement of support for the popular pontiff.

Catholic Reform International has opened a new website ‘We Support Pope Francis to promote this move, with supporting social media pages.

We in ACI are happy to to provide a link to this site and to encourage our members to contribute.  A return to a merciless legalism in the church would be a final defeat of the intent of the second Vatican Council (1962-65) which recognised the ‘change of era’ and the obligation of dialogue and reform that Pope Francis also strongly recognises.
