Pope Francis endorses Rosary on the Coast

Pope in Easter Vigil baptizes eight adults including Nigerian migrant hailed in Italy as a hero

On Thursday the Holy See stated that a reported interview between Pope Francis and an Italian journalist, which claims the Pope denied the existence of hell, should not be considered an accurate depiction of Francis' words, but the author's own "reconstruction".

"Hell does not exist - what exists is the disappearance of sinful souls", the Pope said, according to Mr Scalfari.

NAIJ.com had noted that Scalfari, who is the founder of one of Italy's leading newspapers, La Repubblica, said he reconstructed the conversation from memory, without taking notes or using a recorder.

Some users in social media doubted the accuracy of La Repubblica's report from the very beginning, as this is not the first time that 93-year-old Scalfari, an atheist journalist, makes the Vatican uneasy, citing distorted quotes of Pope Francis.

Those who repent obtain God's forgiveness and take their place among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and can not be forgiven disappear. "But those who do not repent, and therefore can not be forgiven, disappear".

In November 2013, following intense controversy over quotes the journalist had attributed to Francis, Scalfari admitted that at least some of the words he had published a month prior "were not shared by the Pope himself".

The Vatican said the pope did receive Scalfari "in a private meeting" to exchange Easter greetings, but he did not "give him an interview". He called out "Mafioso Christians", saying they "carry death in their soul and to others". It speaks of "eternal fire" and adds that "the chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God".

Bottom line: After Pope Francis declared "There is no Hell" the Vatican panicked, and issued a correction, reassuring the faithful that sinners will burn for eternity in Hell.
