I support Pro Multis = For Many

Since there seems to be those in Germany and here in the U.S. that refuse to obey the Vatican (and authentic translation and just common sense for that matter), I would just like to say:

"Pro Multis" means "For many"

To quote one of my theology professors when someone asked about Hans Urs von Balthasar's "Dare We Hope That All Be Saved" he responded (in his thick Hungarian accent), "This ... this idea is just stupid." Then we went on to talk about the fact that man has free will and will be judged by his actions to accept or reject God's will.
THIS IS BASIC (AND COMPLETELY REASONABLE) THEOLOGY!


I certainly hope that God does have mercy, but He did create man in His own image, we do have free will.

The bear in the second picture brings to mine the words, "One crying out in the wilderness."
