Mitigating factors in pastoral discernment 301. For an adequate understanding of the possibility and need of special discernment in certain “irregular” situations, one thing must always be taken into account, lest anyone think that the demands of the Gospel are in any way being compromised. The Church possesses a solid body of reflection concerning mitigating factors and situations. Hence it is can no longer simply be said that all those in any “irregular” situation are living in a state of mortal sin and are deprived of sanctifying grace. More is involved here than mere ignorance of the rule. A subject may know full well the rule, yet have great difficulty in understanding “its inherent values”,339 or be in a concrete situation which does not allow him or her to act differently and decide otherwise without further sin. As the Synod Fathers put it, “factors may exist which limit the ability to make a decision”.340 Saint Thomas Aquinas himself recognized that someone may possess grace and charity, yet not be able to exercise any one of the virtues well;341 in other words, although someone may possess all the infused moral virtues, he does not clearly manifest the existence of one of them, because the outward practice of that virtue is rendered difficult: “Certain saints are said not to possess certain virtues, in so far as they experience difficulty in the acts of those virtues, even though they have the habits of all the virtues”.342
This is a lie.
It is always "mortal sin." There is always a deprivation of "sanctifying grace." It simply does not exist. To believe otherwise is heretical.
What are these "irregular" situations that the Bergoglio would not mention? No courage to mention them specifically? How about two Catholics "shacking up"? How about a Catholic engaging in same-sex behaviour? How about a Catholic who has deserted their legitimate spouse to fornicate in an adulterous relationship with another? What about a chronic masturbator? If these people do not know that it is mortal sin, whose fault is that? What mitigation is there in these examples. Perhaps depression might lead to suicide, this might be a mitigating factor and the person is entrusted to God's mercy.
Mortal sin is mortal sin. If there is a mitigating factor that is up to God. The Church must proclaim the Truth.
Jorge Bergoglio has lied. Yes, he has lied. There is mortal sin. It will kill your soul. Mortal Sin deprives the soul of "sanctifying grace."
To believe otherwise is foolish.
If this lie is promoted in parishes it will lead people into greater sin and lead them into Hell.
Yes, that is how serious this paragraph is. Who will denounce it? What Prelate will have the courage to call out the Pope?
It will be known in history as the Bergoglian Heresy.
