POPE FRANCIS’ REVOLUTION OF MERCY: AMORIS LAETITIA AS A NEW PARADIGM OF CATHOLICITY

Quote:Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia represents a paradigm shift for the Church’s ministry. The Pope’s immediate goal is to enable a more reliable and realistic approach in deciphering the experiences of people in modern family life. Yet, these interpretive principles have much wider application as they offer an integrated way of thinking of how the Church is to take up her entire mission in a new, imaginative and creative way that links knowledge and practice in a differentiated unity.

Cardinal BLASE J. CUPICH is a native of Omaha, Nebraska, and was the personal choice of Pope Francis to succeed Francis Cardinal George as Archbishop of Chicago in September 2014. He was previously bishop of Rapid City, South Dakota, and Spokane, Washington. He is a member of the Vatican Congregations for Bishops and Catholic Education. He completed his studies at the Catholic University of America in Washington with a doctorate in sacramental theology. He was elevated to the College of Cardinals on 19 November 2016. He was a prominent voice at the 2015 Synod on the Family which informed Pope Francis’ exhortation, Amoris Laetitia.
Hmmm....Don't know what to make of it!  :huh:
What is a "modern family"?

How is it any different from a "family"?

Yes, the Church needs to  "take up her entire mission in a new, imaginative and creative way" because truth is always changing.  :dodgy:

True!  The use of "modern family" makes one think that modern families are not like families in other times in history at all.  What nonsense!
Maybe it's a 'Modern Family' like this one. You know, 'blended' with a 'married' homosexual couple who have a daughter with 'two fathers'.
Hopefully, there will be a transcript or video-recording of the lecture. The space is assigned for two hours, so perhaps there will actually be a question-and-answer session at the end (?). Personally, I am very curious whether His Excellency will be able to speak for over an hour without actually saying anything. If he does elect to take questions, I  sincerely hope that someone asks him directly about the relevant matters (as reflected in the Dubia).

Peace.....perhaps nobody will show up - oops!  it's always the bad guy who gets lots of attention.... :church:
Could care less what this man or his handler has to say on matters regarding Family and Tradition.
