In a letter published Tuesday by the Holy See, Pope Francis said he is allowing all rank-and-file priests to grant absolution during the Year of Mercy he has proclaimed, which runs December 8, 2015 until November 20, 2016. The Roman Catholic Church views abortion as such a grave sin that it put the matter of granting forgiveness for an abortion in the hands of a bishop, who could either hear the woman’s confession himself or delegate that to a priest who is expert in such situations. But now, the pontiff is making it possible for women to bypass this formalized process in the approaching special Year of Mercy while putting the stress on “contrite” hearts.

Looks like it’s just one vote away till President Obama gets enough Democratic Senate support to make his deal with Iran veto-proof, after the expected disapproval vote by the GOP controlled House sometime before September 17th. In fact, most pretty much considered things a done deal even before two additional Democratic senators announced their support for the deal on Tuesday. Now, will Congressional Republicans take out their angst in other ways, as there is a big spending bill matter that needs to be ironed out by the end of the month.
