Yesterday at a meeting conducted by the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life, Pope Francis said that "the Holy Spirit is a disaster because He never tires of being creative."
My dear friends who insist on trying to defend the indefensible utterances of this Pope, don't try this time. It truly would be both intellectually and spiritually dishonest of you to even engage on such logical gymnastics. Think about it. The Third Person of the Blessed Trinity is God. The Vicar of Christ said that "God is a disaster". Did he mean to say that? I don't know and more importantly it doesn't matter what he meant. The fact is that he said it. Can you point to any other pontiff who let that kind of blasphemy come out of his mouth?
Later he extols the benefits of "discernment". I'd agree that discernment is most beneficial. He should try it sometime.
