The Year of Mercy: Priest will be given authority to absolve abortion

In response to the year of Mercy the Diocese of Salford have mapped plans to spread the Mercy of God as directed by Pope Francis; they have made plans to reach out to Manchester and Lancashire using a double deck bus that will be filled with priests and evangelist of Mercy for the year of mercy; to spread the word, hold mass, conduct confessions, etc.

The major aim of this move is to reach those regions that cannot access church and have been unable to attend one for a very long time. And grant them an opportunity to draw closer to God. Especially through confessions as Pope Francis have promised to to allow priest all around the world during the Year of Mercy Jubilee to absolve women who confess of their abortion sins.

Bishop John Arnold of Salford said: “The Mercy Bus is a way of reaching out to people who might not otherwise have contact with the Church. We are going to them, rather than expecting them to come to us.”

    What is the RCC’s official position on abortion? As I understand it, they have done away with Limbo; so what happens to the soul of the aborted fetus (assuming that there is such a thing as souls and that fetuses have them)? Does it go to Heaven or Hell? How can it go to heaven if it isn’t baptized?

    If Bible God sends these completely innocent souls to Hell, then I have no use for Him. There’s certainly nothing fair, just, loving or merciful in that action! If He sends them to heaven, then what’s the harm? Our whole reason to be here, we’re told, is to believe, say and do the right things so that we can be “saved” and go to heaven. If the aborted soul goes to heaven, what’s the harm? It goes from the starting line to the winner’s circle without having to run the race, or take the gamble that it might not believe, say, or do the right things, and therefore end up in eternal torment. Is it possible that Christians are jealous of this? If the aborted soul goes right to heaven, it’s just not fair, is it? The person who loses his/her faith or has the wrong one, would have been much better off being aborted, if indeed the soul goes to heaven, right?

    It seems to me that the RCC addresses this by failing to address it. They’ve done away with Limbo, but the aborted and miscarried souls are still there, aren’t they?
