Pope answers editorial's questions on faith and secularism

Rome, September 11 - In a letter to the founder of Italy's largest circulation daily paper La Repubblica published on Wednesday, Pope Francis said that "God forgives those who obey their conscience". The pope was responding to an August 7 editorial on faith and secularism by the paper's founder Eugenio Scalfari that asked "if the Christian God forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith". "Given that - and this is the key point - God's mercy has no limits, if you go to him with a sincere and repentant heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience. Sin, even for those who have no faith, is when one goes against their conscience," wrote Francis.
