Father Federico Lombardi: Would you like to see a real heinous act?

Father Federico Lombardi, S.J. Priest. Jesuit. Head of the Holy See Press Office.

Words are important.

When you use a phrase such as a "heinous act."

Please be sure that you know what the hell you are talking about!

You embarrass and shame me as a Catholic, you a priest and as a leader and a confidant to the Pope.

It is good that God is merciful.

I would not be.

Attacks against God and His Holy Laws, and the salvation of souls - which this encyclical is - are heinous.

Very powerful post, and thank you.

IMHO, they use the word heinous in the mainstream media and Hollyweird a lot, for effect - so now in the Vatican too.
