Quotes of the week
"I think in particular of all the women who have resorted to abortion. I am well aware of the pressure that has led them to this decision.
I know that it is an existential and moral ordeal. I have met so many women who bear in their heart, the scar of this agonising and painful decision. What has happened is just profoundly unjust: yet only understanding the truth of it can enable one not to lose hope. The forgiveness of God cannot be denied to one who has repented."
- Pope Francis indicating he will remove abortion from the list of "reserved" sins incurring automatic excommunication, for one year.
