Pope Francis Has Extended The Powers Of Catholic Priests To Forgive Abortions

Pope Francis has extended the powers of Catholic priests to forgive abortions,making the announcement in an apostolic letter released Monday

It continues a special dispensation granted last year for the duration of the Year of Mercy, which finished Sunday. “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,” the letter states.
