On February 9th, 2016, (the vigil of Ash Wednesday), Bergoglio delivered a speech to the ‘Missionaries of Mercy” – priests who would go out during this Year of Mercy.
In his speech, Bergoglio spoke of the language of gestures – that often people can’t verbalize their sins through shame, and that the priest should give them absolution.
The following email was received from a fellow crusader (and blogger)– making a connection that I was not aware of:
“The other thing to note is that when this was said by the FP on Feb 9,
He did so in the presence of PADRE PIO’S BODY and ST LEOPOLD MANDIC’s body, the saint of the confessional.
So more MOCKERY !
Pray for Us St Padre Pio and St Leopold Mandic!
