Cardinal Aguilar on Amoris Laetitia: Read it Slowly
Mahound's Paradise covers the story brought to his attention by Jane Royal...
'A few distinguished gentlemen are suffering because they do not understand what Francis meant in Amoris Laetitia and want the Pope to explain it. Their "concerns" are imaginary, because the Pope said what needed to be said with sufficient clarity.
Just read it slowly if you want to understand. Some say (Amoris Laetitia) expresses personal opinions; others that it doesn't change anything; and others that it changes much. One must be more sincere and a open-minded.
The Pope expressed much about the nature of Christian marriage as a covenant of irrevocable love. And he did so as it had never been done previously in the magisterium of the Church. Taking a very realistic perspective, he says that in today's society there may be people trapped in situations of sin, from which they repent and from which, at a given time, they cannot extricate themselves; and it teaches that these people, if they are truly repentant, can receive absolution from their sins and can therefore receive communion avoiding any scandal. If those who doubt our aside their cards and go to confession, they will understand better.
Find people who are suffering and sincerely seek God. God loves, God calls, God waits with his peace. How can we dispossess them?'
If the Cardinals "concerns" are your "concerns" they are not real, genuine "concerns". That's why "concerns" are in quotation marks.
If you have "concerns" you should read it slowly. Then your "concerns" will disappear.
The Pope is great and his teachings on marriage are great. So your "concerns" are null and void.
If you have "concerns" you don't have sympathy for people in difficult situations who repent but who cannot yet break free from their difficult situations.
If you have "concerns" you are not a real Christian.
Thanks for clearing that up, Cardinal Aguilar.
Now can you ask the Pope to speak for himself and answer the concerns of the Cardinals which are also the concerns of the People of God.
