Francis Wrong Again: Amoris Laetitia Is Anything But Thomistic

During a meeting with Jesuits in Colombia Pope Francis claimed that his controversial Amoris Laetitia is “the morality of the great Thomas”. Francis' remarks were published by La Civiltà Cattolica on September 28.

He suggested to ask questions about this to the “great theologian", Vienna Cardinal Schönborn, a relativist who has no expertise in Thomas' moral theology. Since 2016 several scholars, among them Michael Pakaluk of the Catholic University of America, have shown that Thomas Aquinas (+ 1274) is misquoted and misused in Amoris Laetitia.

One example is number 301. It insinuates that Thomas supports the idea that persons could become saints while at the same time acting contrary to some virtues. In reality, Thomas speaks about people who have repented past sins and keep the moral law, but do so with some difficulty.

Pope Francis and Cardinal Burke have made an in principle mistake in faith and morals since we cannot judge exceptions to the general rule on mortal sin and exclusive salvation.
MORALS/MORTAL SIN
We cannot say that any particular couple who is living in concubinage is living as a brother and sister. This is something only God can know.
We cannot tell a couple who are divorced and remarried … More

They make believe that those who stand for Truth are wrong too rigid ,to create more confusion , The best thing would be for Pope Frances to humble himself and accept that there are errors on the AMORIS LAETITIA ,but i dont think it will happen

One of Francis pope closest prelates stated:
Francis pope and his Amoris Laetitia
are under Holy Ghost influence,
so... go away from putting him on trial...
Another hand:
if you blame him for HERESY,
you fight with Holy Ghost /the God/ !
interesting .....????
