You Don't have to be a Virgin to be a Consecrated Virgin According to Pope Francis

Timothy Birdnow

Pope Francis, the aging hipster Pontiff, says virginity is not a prerequisite for being a Consecrated Virgin (I?)

From PJ Media:

"Thus to have kept her body in perfect continence or to have practised the virtue of chastity in an exemplary way, while of great importance with regard to the discernment, are not essential prerequisites in the absence of which admittance to consecration is not possible," Francis wrote.

This seems to conflict with the official "Rite of Consecration to a Life of Virginity," which this teaching did not change. The USACV presented a literal translation of the Latin:

Those Women to Whom the Virginal Consecration May be Imparted: a) In the case of virgins leading lives in the world it is required that they have never celebrated marriage and that they have not publicly or manifestly lived in a state contrary to chastity.

For nearly 2,000 years, "the Church has sought to guard the integrity of consecrated virginity and the uniquely virginal eschatological sign it represents."

"In stating that the virgin seeking consecration must 'have not publicly or manifestly lived in a stated contrary to chastity,' the criterion is specifying that virginity is a minimum requirement for consecration," the USACV wrote. "There are some egregious violations of chastity that, even if not strictly violating virginity, would disqualify a woman from receiving the consecration of virgins."

End excerpt.

Someone really should tell the Pope that the Playboy Club closed in 1991 and it still is a bad idea.
