Rorate Caeli

Advice for the Franciscans of the Immaculate

Back in June, Pope Francis addressed a group of religious in Latin America (see Rorate's report here). Maybe the Franciscans of the Immaculate should take the pope's advice as well:

Pope Francis: "They will make mistakes, they will make a blunder [meter la pata], this will pass! Perhaps even a letter of the Congregation for the Doctrine (of the Faith) will arrive for you, telling you that you said such or such thing... But do not worry. Explain whatever you have to explain, but move forward... Open the doors, do something there where life calls for it. I would rather have a Church that makes mistakes for doing something than one that gets sick for being closed up..."
