PopeWatch: Bravo

Now if he had only said something as devastatingly on target as this prior to the Irish abortion vote:

 

“I have heard that it’s fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let’s send it away,” Pope Francis was reported as saying.
“I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves.”

  1. Restricted to the written word, you could probably cherry-pick your way though his assorted statements to assemble a typical post-conciliar conservative pope.

    Which is probably the most devastating criticism one can make.

  2. Hmm, he was addressing Italy’s Family Assoc. I assume they are pro-life (I may be wrong). Ergo, a friendly audience for Church teaching.
    .
    It occurs to me I have never, ever heard a sermon about the evils of contraception or abortion from the lips of a Catholic priest except when the audience/ congregation was known to be, or could safely assume to be, on board with Church teaching, for example at an NFP conference or Marian Triduum, etc.
