PRIESTS CAN FOR­GIVE ABOR­TIONS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

VAT­I­CAN CITY: Pope Fran­cis yes­ter­day ex­tended in­def­i­nitely to all Ro­man Catholic priests the power to for­give abor­tion, a right pre­vi­ously re­served for bish­ops or spe­cial con­fes­sors in most parts of the world. Fran­cis, who has made a more in­clu­sive and for­giv­ing Ro­man Catholic Church a char­ac­ter­is­tic of his pa­pacy, made the an­nounce­ment in a doc­u­ment known as an “apos­tolic let­ter”. – Reuters
