Bulgaria: Pope Francis: All Priests Have Right To Grant Absolution for Abortion BGNES

All priests will have the right to grant absolution for abortion, announced Pope Francis on Monday, reported AFP.

This was a temporary measure introduced on the occasion of the jubilee year of the Vatican but, now, the decision of the leader of the Catholic Church will remain permanent.

“As of now, I give all priests the right, in accordance with their office, the ability to forgive those who have committed the sin of abortion,” said the pope while commemorating the end of the jubilee year of mercy which ended on November 20.
