“According to a Maltese news outlet, Pope Francis thanked the Catholic bishops of Malta for their interpretation of Amoris Laetitia, which says active adulterers may receive Holy Communion if they feel “at peace with God.”
Newsbook reported that Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri, Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops, recently sent the Maltese bishops a letter on behalf of Pope Francis.” (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/report-pope-francis-thanks-malta-bishops-for-allowing-remarried-divorcees-t)
This would constitute another bold affirmation of notorious heresy on Antipope Francis’ part. It’s an utter rejection of the Gospel and Catholic dogma. In January we posted an article about the outrageous notorious heresy and the new false gospel being promoted by the Maltese ‘bishops’. They are openly teaching that adulterers may take ‘Communion’ if they feel they are at ‘peace with God’: Maltese ‘Bishops’ tell ‘remarried’ adulterers: take ‘Communion’ if you feel at ‘peace with God’ (article) Some of the key points from our post are below.
As part of their implementation of Antipope Francis’ notoriously heretical teaching in Amoris Laetitia, the apostate ‘bishops’ of the Vatican II sect in Malta are now openly stating that “remarried people [that is, people living in adulterous situations and invalid second ‘marriages’] should receive Communion if they think they are at peace with God. In a new document, Criteria for the Application of Chapter VIII of Amoris Laetitia, the bishops say that if ‘a separated or divorced person who is living in a new relationship manages, with an informed and enlightened conscience, to acknowledge and believe that he or she are [sic] at peace with God, he or she cannot be precluded from participating in the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist’.” (Catholic Herald, Malta’s bishops tell the remarried: take Communion if you feel at peace with God)
This is of course a total rejection of the Church’s dogmatic teaching on the indissolubility of marriage and that second ‘marriages’ are invalid and adulterous. It repudiates the scriptural and dogmatic proclamation that adultery puts one in a state of mortal sin, and that those living in a state of mortal sin may not be admitted to Communion. The apostate Maltese ‘bishops’ also say that avoiding sex with a new partner may be “impossible”. “The Maltese document is signed by Archbishop Charles Scicluna of Malta, a former doctoral student of Cardinal Burke, and Bishop Mario Grech of Gozo.” The document has also been published by the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.
The guidelines of the Maltese ‘bishops’ have been published in a document which has been handed out to every ‘priest’ in the ‘Archdiocese’ of Malta and the ‘Diocese’ of Gozo. The ‘Archdiocese’ of Malta and the ‘Diocese’ of Gozo have also directed that a letter explaining the guidelines be read out at ‘Mass’ on Sunday in churches all over Malta and Gozo.
Apparently Antipope Francis has now thanked the Maltese heretics for their notoriously heretical actions.
