Pope Francis allows priests to absolve ‘grave sin’ of abortion

Pope Francis: “I want to insist as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin because it puts an end to an innocent life.”

CHR Comment: The story also includes the closing of the cathedral doors that were symbolically opened for a year of jubilee mercy. The pope’s statement also includes a good example of the Roman Catholic views on repentance in distinction from that traditionally proclaimed by Protestant denominations.
