(Rome) The Special Secretary of the double-Synod of Bishops on the family of 2014 and 2015, Archbishop Bruno Forte, reveals the background detail about Amoris Laetitia and the "Jesuit" mentality of the Pope. The Archbishop, who is counted among the Pope's confidants, the Apostolic Exhortation was Amoris Laetitia, provides a better understanding of its actual intention.
Archbishop Forte has presentedAmoris Laetitia in his diocese of Chieti-Vasto in Abruzzo, Italy. For this the archdiocese was invited to theTeatro Rossetti of Vasto.The presentation followed, according to the Vatican recommendations to all diocesan bishops.In attendance was the Head of the Family Pastoral Department of the Diocese, Don Nicola Del Bianco, a married couple and the Archbishop, as the issue was reported by VastoZonalocale.it.
The Message of Amoris Laetitia : "Do not judge"
Archbishop Forte spoke at length about the "crisis of the family", whose causes he accounted for the "lack of work, housing problems, migratory phenomena and physical and human misery". Pope Francis did address this with the Apostolic Letter Amoris Laetitia. Its message: "Do not judge, but look upon all with the look of mercy, but without sacrificing the truth of God. It's easy to say, this family has failed ', but hard to help, so they do not fail." No one should "feel excluded from the Church."
Amoris Laetitia proclaima "no new doctrine, but a compassionate use of the old wine ', which - as we know - is always the best," says Monsignor Forte.
This would naturally have "practical" implications in the area of "direct" paths set for "pastoral and ecclesial communion". In this context, Archbishop Forte revealed previously unknown details of the Synod of Bishops and its "impact."
"Typical of a Jesuit:" Therefore, we do not talk directly about it ... "
Specifically, the archbishop recounted an episode in which Pope Francis said to him:
"If we explicitly speak of communion for remarried divorcees, who knows what they are then going to get, a casino [commotion]? We therefore do not talk directly about it. Make it so that the premises are given, which get the conclusions I prefer. "
This was "typical of a Jesuit", as Archbishop Forte jokingly added, and praised the "wisdom" of the Pope's statement that it was allowed to reach Amoris Laetitia.
Msgr. Forte had revealed "a fraud" on the other hand, said Secretum meum mihi . Archbishop Forte was already one of the "leading anti-Catholic voices" at the Synod. He wrote the controversial interim report of the Synod of Bishops in 2014 favorable to homosexuality.
Archbishop Forte has with his revelation, "given an insight into the mentality of the Pope." The question of whether remarried divorcees may receive Communion was made with the Pope's approval of Cardinal Walter Kasper in February 2014 when the actual topic of the Synod of Bishops was decided. Archbishop Forte has now revealed the tactics, not to speak, because of internal church opposition to the weakening of the marriage sacrament, of the admission to communion, but to implement it in practice. That is not only "anti-Catholic" in fact, but also a "fraud", said Secretum meum mihi .
The video released on Youtube of the presentation by Archbishop Forte has now been removed.
