“In a homily delivered at Casa Santa Marta on Wednesday of Holy Week, Pope Francis indicated that he does not know if Judas –– the disciple who betrayed Jesus, leading to his crucifixion –– is in hell.
“How did Judas end up? I don’t know,” said Pope Francis, according to a translation of his homily published by Aleteia. …
But “Christ never calls Judas a ‘traitor’ personally. Rather, Jesus calls him ‘friend’ and kisses him.””
