Rome Lifts Sanctions on Silenced Irish Priest

The term for this is “mercy”. The essential paragraph:

“It was reported at the weekend that the CDF’s change of stance towards Fr Fagan was because “he loves the Church in spite of all its weaknesses: that he accepted his censure and observed his restrictions; and to his advanced age.”

He has been seriously ill for years and is 86 years old. This is mercy – to allow him to die in good standing. I like a Church of mercy.
