"The Holy Father is aware of the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which he takes seriously".

The pope was interviewed by Eugenio Scalfari, a veteran Italian journalist and atheist who regularly muses about faith and religion, and enjoys access to the leader of the Catholic Church.

"Reconciliation is not just between government and Indigenous Peoples, it's between non-Indigenous Canadians and Indigenous Peoples as well", Trudeau said.

Pope Francis will not apologize to survivors of Canada's Indian residential schoolsfor the role the Roman Catholic church played in operating the institutions or the abuses suffered there.

Controversy surrounded the Vatican and Pope Francis after an interview was released in which the Pope allegedly claimed there was no hell and people who die without knowing Christ simply "disappear". During his private audience, Trudeau encouraged the pontiff to consider making a formal apology to residential school survivors and their families in the spirit of reconciliation.

A papal apology was one of the 94 recommendations from a Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Canada, and the prime minister, Justin Trudeau, had also asked the pope to apologize during a visit to the Vatican previous year. But, on Tuesday, it was officially denied.

Instead, he wrote, the Pope encouraged the bishops "to continue to engage in an extensive pastoral work of reconciliation, healing and solidarity with the Indigenous peoples".

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". Certain heretical offshoots of Christianity, like Jehovah's Witnesses, Christadelphians and Seventh Day Adventists adhere to the Annihilation of Souls theology, but Catholics, the Orthodox Church and most Protestant denominations reject the idea.

The commission recommended an apology similar to that offered by the Pope to Irish victims of sexual abuse in 2010.

Sen. Murray Sinclair, the former head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, said a lack of apology could interfere with the healing process. "It was like a driver of a vehicle indicating that he was sorry that somebody had been injured", he said, "but not taking responsibility for the fact that he was driving the auto that had injured" the person.

Trudeau has "done what was asked of him", Sinclair told HuffPost Canada on Wednesday, adding he doesn't expect the prime minister to ask the Pope to reconsider.

Bishop Mark Hagemoen's comments come on the heels of the president of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops putting out a letter stating Pope Francis can't issue an apology for residential schools. "Before you can really heal, people have to acknowledge the truth in what happened". Nearly two-thirds of the 130 schools were run by the Catholic Church.

I can give a good account of hell. It is a fiery lake of sulphur which is a celestial, rogue body that is part of a rogue celestial system coming into our solar space even as we speak. It is already causing 'great tribulations' all over the world and is causing Satan to take, what he considers, to be evasive action. But we know that all those written about in Revelation 21:8 will be spiritually sucked into its gravitational embrace when it leaves our space and is centrifugally hurled back out into space leaving all those wearing Jesus Christ's righteous armour to get on with things in a new heaven and a new Earth along with a new universal science which will confirm everything that Jesus said and did as being totally, absolutely, and wonderfully true...and an eternity of loving care and responsible happiness to get use to the idea.

It may seem brutal but Almighty God, Jehovah and Jesus Christ hold them entirely responsible for all the chaos over the past 2000 years and which would continue unabated if they can't be bothered to repent in a meaningful way before their Judgement.

I say this because Jesus told us about it in Revelation 21:8 NWT. When the door closes on all unrepentant sinners they will be spiritually snatched away by the invasive forces that are coming upon this planet exactly as Jesus described. We should be looking to the sun and the moon, the stars and all the tribulations to find these answers and it is hoped that many people will change their minds before then...but the current climate suggests many won't. The reason Almighty God, Jehovah, is so harsh on them is because they would be the first to rebel within the climate of righteousness, as they have no peaceful presence, and refuse any, Biblical instruction. It would be like going through the last 2000 years all over again.
