Winnipeg Statement confusion.
"Oh, little daughter, some day everyone will see the interminable and burning chain to which my priestly sons are chained for having changed the confessional, site of mercy, to a place of sinfulness. These priestly souls in Hell curse incessantly the confessional with sorrowful screams, remembering the sins they once committed there," (CL-159, Jan. 24, 1996).
A number of women have mentioned to me of being assured in the confessional that contraception was allowed if one's conscience felt it to be right. Some thought they were being misled. They all were. Is the advice many are being given among the sins of the confessional Jesus warned about? If so, let us pray that all Canadian clergy repudiate the Winnipeg Statement so that no more end up in hell.
