Innocent XI…

…judges Francis’ idea on the pastor

  • It is a condemned error to seek a proximate occasion for sinning for our good or that of a neighbor

[Condemned error] It is permitted to seek directly the proximate occasion for sinning for a spiritual or temporal good of our own or of a neighbor. […] All condemned and prohibited, as they are here expressed, at least as scandalous and in practice pernicious. (Denzinger-Hünermann 2163. Innocent XI, Various errors on moral subjects II, condemned in a decree of the Holy Office, March 4, 1679)

…judges Francis’ idea on the essence of divinity

  • Condemned: the doctrine of Molinos, as pantheist theology

[Condemned Error:] By doing nothing the soul annihilates itself and returns to its beginning and to its origin, which is the essence of God, in which it remains transformed and divinized, and God then remains in Himself, because then the two things are no more united, but are one alone, and in this manner God lives and reigns in us, and the soul annihilates itself in operative being. (Denzinger-Hünermann 2205. Errors of Miguel Molinos in the Constitution Coelestis Pastor by Innocence XI, Nov. 20, 1687)
