Ehn? Pope Francis Gives Power To Catholic Priests To Forgive Abortion

Pope Francis has extended the powers of Catholic priests to forgive abortions, a right which was previously reserved for bishops or special confessors in most parts of the world.popeHe made this known today, November 21, in an announcement made in an apostolic letter which reads:

“I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life. In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father.. May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation,”

I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion.”
