Pope Francis has recently issued a document changing a 2021 document and making it possible for the clergy to bless homosexual couples. Blessings cannot be made as part of a church liturgy. Same sex marriage ceremonies cannot be blessed.
My reading of the Vatican document is that the concept of blessing is to be changed to include the blessing of bad things rather than the blessing of good things with the intention of encouraging the couple to repent and in future do the moral thing.
The problem is that this is unlikely to happen. On 2BL radio this morning, 702, the document was interpreted as the Pope giving his “blessing” to gay unions. In other words, he is giving limited approval of these unions without, agreeing to gay marriages.
In my view this is heresy!
In my view, it is “the thin edge of the wedge” and, in time, we will have the Church agreeing to same sex marriage.
