VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis today received in audience a prominent priest known for his long-standing public rejection of Catholic teaching, advocacy of LGBT ideology, and downplaying of the role of Jesus in salvation.
Pope Francis met Monday with Father Richard Rohr, O.F.M., the founder of the eponymous Rohr Institute and the meditation center called the “Center for Action and Contemplation,” situated in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
LifeSiteNews contacted the Holy See Press Office inquiring as to the details of the meeting, and if Pope Francis admonished Fr. Rohr for his teaching, but is awaiting a reply.
The meeting was noted by Christopher Lamb, Vatican correspondent for dissident magazine The Tablet, and warmly welcomed by pro-LGBT priest Father James Martin.
