Vatican: journalist misquoted Pope on Christ’s divinity
October 10, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has flatly contradicted a report by Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari that Pope Francis said Jesus was not divine. “The Holy Father never said what Scalfari wrote,” Vatican spokesman Paolo Ruffini told reporters on October 10. Earlier the Vatican press office had said that Scalfari’s report “cannot be considered a faithful account.” As for what the Pope truly thinks on the issue, Ruffini said: “That will be found rather throughout the Church’s magisterium and Pope Francis’ own, on Jesus: true God and true man.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
