en.news During a meeting with Jesuits in Colombia Pope Francis claimed that his controversial Amoris Laetitia is “the morality of the great Thomas”. Francis' remarks were published by La Civiltà Cattolica on September 28.
He suggested to ask questions about this to the “great theologian", Vienna Cardinal Schönborn, a relativist who has no expertise in Thomas' moral theology. Since 2016 several scholars, among them Michael Pakaluk of the Catholic University of America, have shown that Thomas Aquinas (+ 1274) is misquoted and misused in Amoris Laetitia.
One example is number 301. It insinuates that Thomas supports the idea that persons could become saints while at the same time acting contrary to some virtues. In reality, Thomas speaks about people who have repented past sins and keep the moral law, but do so with some difficulty.
