Pope tells Argentine Bishops to use doc restricting communion for pro-aborts

In a letter to the Bishops of Argentina sent in late March, Pope Francis directed Argentina’s Bishops to govern the Church there following the Aparecida Document.

Although the letter did receive some media attention, few outlets mentioned the stress Pope Francis placed on the Aparedica document. In the letter, the Pope urged the Argentine Assembly of Bishops to use the Aparecida document as their framework. “These are the guidelines we need for this time in history,” he said.
