CBCP: Abortion remains a ‘grave offense’ despite absolution

4 September 2015, 2:23 pm - POPE FRANCIS has given all priests the authority to absolve the mortal sin of abortion during the coming Extraordinary Jubilee Year of the Catholic Church, but it remains a "grave offense," the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said.

In a pastoral letter titled “Understanding Pope Francis’ gesture rightly" published on Sept. 3, CBCP President and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas said the absolution of abortion would not make the sin less serious. Instead, it makes God’s mercy more visible.

"This does not make the sin less grievous. What it does is make the mercy of God more tangible through the ministry of the Church,” Villegas said.
