In any event since we don't know what the final judgement was I think it is best for us to pray for the repose of his soul that God give him a merciful judgement.

Poche, I'm relatively new to taking my faith seriously, but if there's one poison I can speak of to almost causing me to lose my faith entirely, it's over reliance on mercy and clemency.  I'm not saying you necessarily are doing wrong, just that you remind me a lot of how I used to be, and that almost led me to thinking that God was uncaring and cruel once I read through the Bible.

You reap what you sow, and Britain has done much, much sowing, throughout the last couple generations.

I disagree.
What and who defines excessive?
..

And I agree with your disagreeing.

It's very vague to talk about the possibility of venial sin when "excessive pleasure" is sought after/experienced in sex.

Let's apply the same thinking to food. There's no way I'm not going to experience pleasure eating a simple, common food like a hamburger when I'm starving hungry. But all we must do as Catholics is 1) first bless our food, thanking Him for His great bounty, and 2) stay within the bounds of temperance (don't eat too fast, or too much, or be too picky, etc.) So as long as you avoid those excesses, as to the rest, the inevitable pleasure of eating was put there by God and it's not evil! Consider it a small consolation from God, to remind us something of His goodness.

We're not Puritans or Manicheans.  Dualism is a heresy: the body wasn't created by the "evil god". No, our body AND our soul were both created good by God, Who is all-perfect.

So if you are staying within God's bounds (for married relations, that would just involve being married and being open to life -- ending all activities in the proper way), then there is no need to get SCRUPLES about it.

If you think that Pope Pius XI backed Hitler and his policies then I would suggest that you take another look at Mit Brennender Sorge.
It should be avoided like the New Mass.

Once you take a child away from a parent the welfare of the child becomes your responsibility. Acting in a way toward children that keeps them in a cage would be considered criminal in any court of law. There are American citizen parents who are in jail for having done the same thing. Wearing a police badge or an ICE badge doesn't give you a license to violate the Law of God.
A) Don't take this personally, but that last sentence is some truly jarring NO bishop kowtowing. It's almost cult-like. These Novus Ordo bishops are all mostly milquetoast and put politics ahead of the Catholic faith. This is not violating the Law of God. What about 60 million abortions since Roe v. Wade? Sodomy enshrined as counterfeit marriage. So many other things in this world are actual violations of the Law of God.

B) American citizens aren't in jail for crossing the border illegally... because they're already American citizens.

Thankfully, he wasn't infallible in this case. He backed Hitler and the NSDAP, so what does that say about him?

Hopefully the children won't be separated for long but rejoined with their border-jumping parents in a large airliner headed south. The children should not be our wards-and neither should the parents. This is a Soros created human rights issue with emotional media optics so the communist/ democrats can beat up on Trump.
 Where is Pope Francis in all of this? He heads the Universal Church, which has access and relief services to these countries of origin. The US Is a single sovereign nation who needs to address the poor already here- not an international global institution like the Church whose secondary goal (after the salvation of souls) should be the corporal acts of mercy.  ( But that isn't really the point for the globalists, is it)

Ether way that doesn't justify acting in a way toward children that would be deemed criminal in a court of law.

Thank you, Poche.
