Did Fr. Z say Amoris Laetitia Absolution is Sacrilegious as Explained by Coccopalmerio & Did Cocco change Act of Contrition?

Pope Francis's Vatican interpreter of Amoris Laetitia (AL) Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio said:

AL "allows absolution... in the presence of an impossibility to change the condition of sin." (National Catholic Register, "Three Bishops Issue Profession of Truth About Sacramental Marriage," January 3, 2017)

This statement is not just anathema by the Council of Trent as explained in a earlier post, but if I read Fr. Z rightly, it is a sacrilege. Fr. Zuhlsdorf posted:

"However, if a person evince no firm purpose of amendment - that is, she clearly doesn't intend to avoid sin(s) again - then the priest cannot, must not, give absolution. His absolution would be... sacrilegious." (Fr. Z's Blog, "Can absolution be granted when no purpose of amendment exists?," January 15, 2017)

It appears, if I am reading Fr. Z correctly, then the absolution that Pope Francis's Vatican interpreter of Amoris Laetitia Coccopalmerio is speaking of is sacrilegious.

Coccopalmerio may have to change the "Act of Contrition" section that says "to sin no more and avoid the near occasions of sin" to "to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin unless it is impossible then it is okay to sin because it's impossible."

Sadly, the above change to the "Act of Contrition" is not fictitious.

It is what the Cardinal would mean when he probably changed it "to sin no more and avoid the near occasions of sin unless there is 'the presence of the impossibility to change the condition of sin.'"

Probably he, the almost comically ignorant or confused defenders of the above interpretation of Amoris Laetitia and the Vatican Insider/La Stampa commentators will say anyone who defends the infallible words of Jesus as well as of Trent, the "Act of Contrition" and the law of contradiction are anti-Pope Bendict XVI.

All these ignorant or confused commentators claiming the magisterial authority of Amoris Laetitia need to listen to magisterium authority expert Villanova University theologian Jessica Murdoch:

"By contrast, doctrinal evolution in which a new teaching sublates and eliminates the earlier teaching in a quasi-Hegelian fashion breeds dissolution, confusion, and death." (First Things, "Creeping Infallibility," 9-27-16)

Pray a Our Father now that the Dubia Cardinals issue the correction.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.
