Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into Gehenna.
“It was also said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a bill of divorce. But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
The Catholic Church teaches “an omission is a failure to do something one can, and ought, to do. If this happens deliberately and freely, it is considered a sin.The degree of guilt incurred by an omission is measured, like that attaching to sins of commission, by the dignity of the virtue and the magnitude of the precept to which the omission is opposed, as well as the amount of deliberation…James the Just more exactly defines this sin when he states, “Whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” (James 4:17)”.
How many souls are lost forever because of this omission? Francis knows the turmoil in the Catholic world over this topic, the misinterpretation and twisting of Christ’s (and His Magisterium’s) clear teachings, to which he has contributed. Instead of availing himself of an ideal opportunity to clarify, Francis ignores the Gospel, Christ’s own Words, at a time when it is sorely needed and he knows so. He picks and chooses the Teachings of Christ (-as if it were a choice!) and does not take opportunity to expound upon what may be difficult for some to accept. Did he do so to cover up his own heretical teaching? What is next, change the readings of The Mass in order to not offend homosexuals and others in states of mortal sin? Well, considering Francis, I don’t think you will find that as far fetched as it sounds…
