Two days ago we heard news about the pope' interview with Kim Davis while he was in town last week. It turns out he had another interview of a very different kind. A former student of the pope's, Yayo Grassi, met with him. This student, a male, brought along with him his accomplice in the mortal sin of sodomy, as well as his mother. LifeSiteNews has more details along with video. The video shows the pope embracing his former student and warmly shaking the other sodomite's hand. The mother of the student appears overcome with emotion. I wonder what it can be, given her son is living in mortal sin? All are speaking in Italian I believe. Does anyone have a decent idea of the conversation?
The pope is the chief shepherd of souls. Nowhere do I see any exhortation of the pope to the two men that they must separate lest they risk damnation and an eternity in hell. This interview was scandalous, and those most scandalized were the two gays, as well as all others who either participate in, or support that evil. It is they who stand to literally lose their souls owing to the lack of spiritual mercy being shown them. Let us remember that the first Spiritual Work of Mercy is to "rebuke the sinner".
Now we hear news that the Vatican has shifted into "damage control mode" over the interview, Father Rosica has acknowledged that the interview had "negative impact" while Father Lombardi said the meeting should not be considered a show of support. But wait a minute! These two Vatican officials weren't speaking of the Grassi interview, but rather the one with Kim Davis. In fact, Father Lombardi went so far as to say, "The only real audience granted by the Pope at the Nunciature was with one of his former students and his family (Grassi)". See this LifeSiteNews piece for details.
Let's unpack this, shall we? After news broke of the Davis meeting, all the progressives waxed huffy about it, expressing Well, my goodness! The Vatican progressives can't have any of that going on now, can they? That goes double due to the sin-nod that will commence next week. So they immediately had to start groveling before their puppet-masters and sugar-daddies and claim that the Davis interview is fake while the Grassi one was the real deal. Got that? Good!
This gives us more of a picture of what kind of circus this sin-nod will be. Pray!
