From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:

During his general audience this week in Saint Peter’s Square, Pope Francis announced the cancellation of the remainder of the Holy Year of Mercy, saying that the whole idea was a “complete and utter bust.”

“Let us not forget that God forgives and God forgives always,” Francis said. “But let us never forget that man does not forgive and will never forgive. That is one thing I have learned these past few months.”

Francis continued his statement, saying, “I was convinced that the whole Church, which has much need to receive mercy, would find in this jubilee the joy to rediscover and render fruitful the mercy of God. Boy, was I way off on that one. Way off. What is wrong with you people? Seriously, I considered keeping it going for a couple more months, but it’s clear you’re all too busy on your phones to rediscover and render fruitful the mercy of God. And the answer is no, liking a picture of Mother Theresa with a quote next to it on Instagram does not count as rediscovering anything but your laziness.”

The Jubilee, which was scheduled to end in November, officially ends today after the official closing ceremony, where Pope Francis is scheduled to take back all the graces Catholics received during the Jubilee, and to return them back to God.

 

 

PopeWatch called the Vatican for comment, but the only one who would speak on the record was Pius Veritas, Vatican janitor:  “Yeah everyone is sad about the cancellation of the year of Mercy.  A Cardinal asked me what I thought about it and I told him that I wished we could just as easily cancel the coming years of God’s Wrath.  Got to go.  Some fool Cardinal has attempted to flush a copy of Amoris laetiti down the toilet in the mens’ room again and there is water everywhere.”

  1. Man, aside for the cancellation part and the cynicism that is what the Pope really ought to say.
