“But Father! But Father!”...

An alert blogging priest out there wrote to me this morning…

Is Pope Francis reading Fr. Z’s blog?

What would all this be about?

He linked to a summary of Pope Francis non-magisterial fervorino for a weekday Mass (HERE) in which he said:

“One of you might say to me: ‘But Father, don’t Christians have laws?’ Yes. Jesus said: ‘I do not come to [abolish the Law], but to fulfil it.’

“But Father! But Father!”, I am sure many of you are saying by now, “Isn’t that something that priests have said for centuries?  And…you hate Vatican II!”

Of course.  Of course.  But we are allowed to have a little fun.

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
