Description

The Center for Religion & Culture invites students, faculty, and staff to a discussion about Pope Francis: Prophet or Heretic?

Several dozen priests, scholars and writers have published what they described as a “filial correction” of some of Pope Francis’ teaching about marriage as found in the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) (April 2016). Amoris Laetitia is Pope Francis’ reflection on the discussion, debate and suggestions raised during the 2014 and 2015 meetings of the Synod of Bishops on the family. The “filial correction” focused on the section of document dealing with pastoral practice titled “Accompanying, Discerning and Integrating Weakness (Chapter 8).

The “filial correction” was delivered to Pope Francis in August; the writers said they did not receive a response, so they released it publically September 24th, launching a web site: www.correctiofilialis.org.
