The Vatican Statement a Dollar Short

I’m sorry they can do bet­ter than this:

Sev­eral tele­phone calls have taken place in the con­text of Pope Fran­cis’ per­sonal pas­toral rela­tion­ships. Since they do not in any way form part of the Pope’s pub­lic activ­i­ties, no infor­ma­tion or com­ments are to be expected from the Holy See Press Office.

That which has been com­mu­ni­cated in rela­tion to this mat­ter, out­side the scope of per­sonal rela­tion­ships, and the con­se­quent media ampli­fi­ca­tion, can­not be con­firmed as reli­able, and is a source of mis­un­der­stand­ing and con­fu­sion.
There­fore, con­se­quences relat­ing to the teach­ing of the Church are not to be inferred from these occurrences.

This widely quoted state­ment says noth­ing.

You can’t have peo­ple allowed a dif­fer­ent stan­dard of sin or respect for the Eucharist because they get a call from the Pope, and as long as the basic ques­tion: Did the Pope tell this woman she could receive holy com­mu­nion with­out con­fes­sion for mor­tal sin no?

Duck­ing the ques­tion only makes things worse and no amount of pre­tend­ing it’s a pri­vate mat­ter changes it. It under­mines the moral author­ity of every priest defend­ing and teach­ing moral doc­trine and will be used as a club against the church by every media out­let in existence.

This blog exists as a full time endeavor thanks to your support.

The report­ing, the com­men­tary and the nine mag­nif­i­cent seven writ­ers are all made pos­si­ble because you, the reader choose to sup­port it.

For a full month of all of what we pro­vide ‚we ask a fixed amount $1465, under $50 a day.

This month we are behind with 6 days to go we need $1086 for a full pay month. We can make our goal if we can get $181 per day We need 7 $25 Tip jar hits per day to make that goal.

If you think the work we do here for the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment is worth it, please con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar below .

Nat­u­rally once our monthly goal is made these solic­i­ta­tions will dis­ap­pear till the next month but once we get 61 more sub­scribers at $20 a month the goal will be cov­ered for a full year and this pitch will dis­ap­pear until 2015.

Con­sider the lineup you get for this price, in addi­tion to my own work seven days a week you get John Ruberry (Marathon Pun­dit) and Pat Austin (And so it goes in Shreve­port) on Sun­day Linda Szu­gyi (No one of any import) on Mon­day Tim Imholt on Tues­day, AP Dil­lon (Lady Liberty1885) Thurs­days, Pas­tor George Kelly Fri­days, Steve Eggle­ston on Sat­ur­days with Baldilocks (Tue & Sat) and Fausta (Wed & Fri) of (Fausta Blog) twice a week.

If that’s not worth $20 a month I’d like to know what is?

 

I’m sorry they can do better than this:

Several telephone calls have taken place in the context of Pope Francis’ personal pastoral relationships. Since they do not in any way form part of the Pope’s public activities, no information or comments are to be expected from the Holy See Press Office.

That which has been communicated in relation to this matter, outside the scope of personal relationships, and the consequent media amplification, cannot be confirmed as reliable, and is a source of misunderstanding and confusion.
Therefore, consequences relating to the teaching of the Church are not to be inferred from these occurrences.

This widely quoted statement says nothing.

You can’t have people allowed a different standard of sin or respect for the Eucharist because they get a call from the Pope, and as long as the basic question: Did the Pope tell this woman she could receive holy communion without confession for mortal sin no?

Ducking the question only makes things worse and no amount of pretending it’s a private matter changes it. It undermines the moral authority of every priest defending and teaching moral doctrine and will be used as a club against the church by every media outlet in existence.
