Pope Francis did not tell journalist

Pope Francis did not tell journalist "there is no hell", Vatican says

"Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, 'eternal fire, '" the Catechism states.

"I know, and it's a word that honours me in the sense in which you say it", Scalfari quotes the pope as replying.

The Vatican is literally falling apart after Pope Francis allegedly said 'Hell does not exist'.

EDF fait grimper la facture — Electricité
Dans une étude parue le 5 avril, l'UFC-Que Choisir accuse le fournisseur d'énergie EDF de surfacturer l'électricité à ses clients. L'association soupçonne EDF de réduire volontairement sa production nucléaire pour faire monter les prix sur les marchés.


That set off a flurry of headlines and social media posts charging that Francis had upended church doctrine by denying the existence of hell, notes NPR.

The solemn commemorations coincide with a new communications controversy in the Vatican over the pope's reported assertion - at the height of Holy Week - that hell does not exist.

"They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and can not therefore be forgiven disappear", Pope Francis said, as translated by Catholic blog Rorate Caeli.

Trump won't attend White House Correspondents dinner this year as well
It was later said in the American media that the mockery had made Trump ferocious to earn recognition in the political world. He called the media "so bad" and "so fake", adding, "I want to get it straightened out with the press before I do it".


Eugenio Scalfari, a co-founder and former editor of La Repubblica, an Italian daily, said Pope Francis - with whom he has had several telephone conversations and face-to-face meetings - invited him to his residence March 27.

In response, Pope Francis is quoted as denying hell, in what the Vatican statement has referred to as a "reconstruction" of the conversation between the two men. They quickly issued a statement of denial, stressing that what was written was "not a faithful transcript" and that the quotes were not direct quotes from the Pope. "It is what is waiting for you if you continue on this path", he said. You had a father and a mother: think of them.

On Christianity's most joyful day, Pope Francis called for peace in a world marked by war and conflict, "beginning with the beloved and long-suffering land of Syria" and extending to Israel, where 15 Palestinians were killed on the Israeli-Gaza border two days before Easter Sunday. This was apparently Scalfari's fifth meeting with the pope, per the Catholic News Agency, and the journalist writes recollections of "unrecorded and unnoted meetings", the National Catholic Reporter reported.

Voter Turnout For Hungary's Parliamentary Election Hit A Record High
The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party placed second with 26 seats, while a Socialist-led, left-wing coalition ran third with 20. A strong showing for Orban will be welcomed by admirers on the far-right in Europe, such as France's Marine Le Pen, and beyond.


"After his first interview in 2013, Scalfari confessed that he used "his own words" to express the thoughts he attributed to the Pope". "Such a life - frequently proposed and imposed - risks leading to Hell". For the same reasons there is a devil: God gave us real freedom, and we can really choose to follow him - or not.
