Francis, “I’ve Had Many Doubts, Many”

Concluding from himself to others, Pope Francis has claimed that “everyone” has doubts about the Faith.

During a April 7 visit to San Giulio Papa parish in Rome he stressed that one should “not be afraid” of doubts. He asked his audience to teach young people how to “doubt well.”

Francis confessed about himself, “I’ve had many doubts, many.”

Doubts are sins against the Faith. According to Catechism 2088 they can lead to spiritual blindness if deliberately cultivated.

To doubt any article of the Faith is a mortal sin.

When you accept the reality that you are dumb and God is omniscient then doubt is not an option. It is in fact a pride filled illogical disposition …More

With the gift of Faith you believe all that God reveals. To have a doubt you must lean towards trust in your own judgment over and against revealed truth. When you accept the reality that you are dumb and God is omniscient then doubt is not an option. It is in fact a pride filled illogical disposition of soul. It is possible that when Francis talks about doubt it is not doubt that God is true and worthy of belief. It could be that he doubts the truths the Church teaches about Him. In his error he believes there is a distinction. Even in this case however, the fact remains that Francis does not hear the voice of truth. He does not hear His voice in His one true Church. Francis cannot/does not/will not discern or recognise the voice of the Shepherd. Pater Noster (x2) Ave Maria (x2) for his conversion.
