Supporting Pope Francis: New Website09/10/2017
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.
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.
