Pope Bergoglio Surprise Creation of New Cardinals

(Rome) Only six months after the recent consistory on the creation of new cardinals, Pope Francis announced yesterday the next cardinal appointments. Such a short-term succession of cardinal appointments was the last thing that happened in 2012 immediately before Pope Benedict XVI's surprise resignation.
The announcement made by Pope Franziskus on Sunday said that Pope Francis felt an urgent need to appoint new cardinals who were eligible for election in an imminent conclave.
The full number of the papal electors currently stands at 120 cardinals who have not yet reached 80 years of age. At present, this includes 116 cardinals. In the first half of 2018, seven current papal electors will leave for reasons of age. Then the number will remain constant until the end of January 2019. With the five new cardinals, 49 of the 121 pope voters will have been appointed by Francis.
With the announcement of the creation of five new cardinals, Pope Francis will even slightly exceed the full figure for eight months.
The Cardinals' Consistory was announced by Francis for the 28th of June. Of the five new cardinals, four come from the margins:
Msgr. Jean Zerbo, Archbishop of Bamako (Mali)
Msgr. Juan José Omella, Archbishop of Barcelona (Spain)
Msgr. Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm (Sweden)
Msgr. Louis-Marie Ling Mangkhanekhoun, Apostolic Vicar of Paksé (Laos)
Gregorio Rosa Chávez, Auxiliary Bishop of San Salvador (El Salvador)
Three of the five new cardinals are from the Diaspora, which is why the question of the representation of the Cardinals from countries and dioceses, which are hardly known to Catholics (Mali, Sweden, Laos), have been raised. Whether the periphery or the center ( Pope Francis allows for an overweights from the periphery once again), a "Bergoglian" identity is common to the appointed men.
Above all, the appointment of an Auxiliary Bishop to the Cardinal raises questions. The reigning Archbishop of San Salvador is younger than his auxiliary bishop coming to the purple. Monsignor Rosa has been an auxiliary bishop since 1982 and was appointed by Pope John Paul II. Archbishop José Luis Escobar Alas was appointed in 2008 by Pope Benedict XVI.
In the Cardinal, and thus to his advisors, the Pope can appoint whom he will, but the elevation of Monsignor Rosa is at least unusual. Auxiliary Bishop Rosa is the oldest of the new Cardinals at 74 years.
On the 28th of June there will be a total of 227 cardinals.

Jesuit General Sosa Signed a Hymn of Praise to Fidel Castro in 1989

In 1989, Sosa signed a manifesto, that Fidel Castro be celebrated as a hero
(Havana) The life of Arturo Sosa Abascal, the 31st Father General of the Jesuit Order reigning since October 2016, reads like a Marxist. In the late seventies, in the high bloom of liberation theology, he dealt with the question of how Christian faith could be mediated Marxistically. Many years later, he joined the circle of convinced Castro followers. This is the result of a declaration of solidarity, which was signed by the now "Black Pope".

"Unprecedented victory over tyranny, corruption and vassalism"

In 1989, 911 Venezuelan intellectuals and artists published a Manifiesto de Bienvenida a Fidel Castro , in which they welcomed the visit of Fidel Castro, the communist dictator of Cuba, and celebrated it as the "leader of the Cuban Revolution".
"We want to pay public respect for what you have achieved for the dignity of your people and for the whole of Latin America"
Says the statement.
"In this dramatic hour for the continent, only ideological blindness can deny the place you occupy in the history of the liberation of our peoples. 30 years ago, you came to Venezuela immediately after the exemplary victory over tyranny, corruption and vassalage. At that time, you were received by our people, as only a hero who embodies and symbolizes the collective ideal could."

Fidel Castro already visited Venezuela in the late 1950s

The signatories assured Fidel Castro, "for the same reasons today," to express their affection associated with "the hope" of building a "just, independent and solidarity Latin America". The persecution of the Church by the Cuban regime obviously did not touch the Jesuit Sosa.With this attitude, he was not alone among progressive Catholics. Christians who are not left are not true Christians, but reactionaries who deserve to be persecuted. Thus, the Swiss Capuchin Walbert Bühlmann formulated it in 1986 and thereby meant the Christian persecution of the Cuban supported Marxist regimes of Angola and Mozambique.
Father Arturo Sosa appears as the 811th signatory to the Declaration, which he signed as Director of the Centro Gumilla ( de Investigacion y Accion Social ). He also published his essay "La mediacion marxista de la Fe cristiana" (The Marxist mediation of the Christian faith) in the SIC of the Centro, which he directed from 1979-1996. Seven years after the praise of Fidel Castro, Sosa became Provincial Provincial of the Jesuit Province of Venezuela in 1996.
"The story is history, you can not deny," wrote the Spanish columnist Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña. For people can change over the years. What matters is where they are. The praise to Fidel Castro could however at best be considered a very late "sin of youth," since Sosa was already 41 years old at that time.

The past has passed: what if the now is even more serious?


Sosa after his election to the Jesuit General

Fidel Castro is dead, his brother Raul still dominates Cuba with a Marxist fist, while Sosa's homeland Venezuela is in a serious crisis. The "bolivarian" Maduro regime, with whom communist Cuba is closely aligned, shoots protesters.
More serious than the Marxist and real socialist aberrations of the Jesuit generation in the past are some doubtful statements today. At the very least, his assertion that Japan can only be evangelized in cooperation with Buddhism and Shintoism (see also the discernment between spirits ) is misleading . A comment in an interview with the Swiss journalist Giuseppe Rusconi brought a charge of heresy  against Sosa. The Father General of the Jesuits questioned nothing but the validity of Jesus' words. In order to justify the admission of remarried divorced to the sacraments and the softening of the sacraments of the Church as they read out parts of the Church from the post-synodal letter Amoris laetitia, calling on Pope Francis, Sosa questioned the infallibility of Jesus. At that time nobody had a tape recorder to record the words.
The case is pending with the Congregation of the Faith, which is now faced with the unusual task of judging a Superior General of the Jesuit Order. However, the situation in the history of the Church and the Order is not entirely new.

Bishop Huonder's Retirement Postponed -- "It's a Complete Surprise"

Bishop Huonder
(Chur) "The surprise is complete," the reaction of a Swiss priest friend last night when he communicated the news. Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur has had his retirement put off for another two years by Pope Francis. Hardly anyone reckoned with this confirmation, even those closest to the bishop.
Msgr. Huonder has been bishop of the oldest Swiss diocese since 2007. On the 21st of April, he completed his 75th year and submitted his resignation on the same day. "That's it," was what the same priest said ten days ago.
Yesterday, Bishop Huonder wrote a letter to "all priests, deacons and pastoral staff in the Diocese of Chur".
"On April 21, 2017, I offered Pope Francis my resignation as a diocesan bishop. In the meantime Pope Francis, after weighing all the circumstances, has already decided and told me that my resolution, now pro-doc, has now been accepted. 'Tunc', so 'then', will be Easter 2019. I will be able to work as a diocesan bishop for two more years."
The Bishop recalls that the Holy See also left his predecessor in the office, Monsignor Amédée Grab, who remained until the age of 77, and till an Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese was appointed until the election of a successor.
Since this was the course under Pope Benedict XVI., however, nobody had expected the usual procedure under Pope Francis. Last autumn, a campaign had been launched against Bishop Huonder, who was already seeking his successor. It was requested that no bishop at all be appointed.
The surprise is also "complete," since Bishop Huonder, with has opposed Amoris Laetitia with the "excellent" Pastoral letter "The Holiness of the Marriage", against the Kasperians and the ambivalent attitude of Pope Francis, who refuses to make a clarification. This faithful confession of the traditional faith and morality has met with little satisfaction in the past few months at the papal court.
Bishop Huonder wrote in his letter:
"The sign of confidence on the part of the Pope, which is connected with his decision, has stirred great gratitude within me. I will continue to use all my powers to continue pastoral service, together with our Auxiliary Bishop Marian, with all priests, deacons and pastoral staff, for the salvation of the souls and the well-being of the Church of Chur."
"I am grateful to Pope Francis for his decision favoring continuity for our diocese.  And I thank him for giving me the opportunity to continue and accompany non-completed work within the diocese as well as at other levels."
Bishop Huonder is the first diocesan bishop of the German-speaking world and beyond, who has appointed his own diocesan vicar to the faithful attending the Immemorial Roman Rite in his diocese. Since diocesan vicars are appointed by the incumbent bishop, the extension also applies to Father Martin Ramm of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
"The surprise is complete," as the Swiss friends repeated.

UPDATE: Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto Elected as New Lieutenant of the Grand Master of the Knights of Malta



(Rome) The 56 electors of the Grand Council of State have elected the new Grand Duke of Rome, Fra Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto, as the new prince and grand master of the Sovereign Order of Malta. The election took place in the Villa Magistrale in Rome, an extraterritorial area under the Sovereignty of the Order.

The 80th Grand Master in the almost thousand-year-old history of the Order will be sworn in on the Aventine on Sunday. This will not take place before the Cardinal Patron of the Order, Cardinal Raymond Burke, but the Apostolic Special Envoy, the Apostolic Special Envoy, the Archbishop of Cordoba, Angelo Becciu, appointed by Pope Francis on February 4, Substitute of the Vatican Secretariat of State.

The new statthalter of the mayor

The new Order Head of the Order until the election of the 80th Grand Master
Giacomo Count Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto was born in 1944 in Rome. He comes from the ancient Catholic nobility from the area of ​​Treviso. He studied at the University of La Sapienza in Rome, specializing in the field of Christian Archeology. At the Pontifical University of Urbaniana , he was a professor for ancient Greek and chief librarians and archives of important collections of the university. In his writings, he appeared mainly with essays on the art history of the Middle Ages.
In 1985, he became a member of the Maltese Vicar, and in 1993 he took the solemn vows. He became a member of the First Order of the Order, for which he has since exercised numerous leading functions. From 1994-1999 he was Grand Priest of Lombardy and Venice, from 1999-2004 member of the Sovereign Council, from 2004-2008 Grand Commander of the Order. As such he directed the order after the death of the 78th Grand Master, Fra Andrew Bertie, already as a statthalter until the election of the 79th Grand Master. Since then he has been the Grand Prince of Rome.

The Dalla Torre del Tempio, Count of Sanguinetto

The Counts di Sanguinetto are closely connected with the papal court. The grandfather of the present head, Giuseppe Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto (1885-1967), was the City Councilor of Padua for the Catholic Union and in 1915 he became president of the Catholic Action of Italy. As such he supported the peace course of Pope Benedict XV. against Italian participation in the First World War. In 1918, the Pope appointed him President of the board of the Osservatore Romano, and in 1920 he became chief editor. It's an office he held until 1960. Before and during the Second World War, he turned against the neo-Nazi (ideals) and atheist (Communism) ideologies and their despotic racial and class antagonisms. In constant friction with the fascist regime, he and his family lived in the Vatican for security reasons. The election of John XXIII. and the appointment of Cardinal Secretary Domenico Tardini led to his resignation.
The father, Paolo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto (1910-1993), was a renowned art historian who also dealt with the Church history of the modern age. Since 1938 he worked for museums of the Vatican. From 1961-1975 he was Director-General of the Vatican Museums . As City Councilor of Rome for the Democrazia Cristiana (DC), he also held political positions after the Second World War.

Priority constitutional reform

In a declaration by the Maltese Order about the Lieutenant of the Grand Master,
"One of the most important tasks" of Fra Dalla Torre as a Lieutenant of the Grand Master "will be to work on the reform of the Constitution and the Codex of the Order."
The current Constitution entered into force in 1961 and was last reformed in 1997.
"The proposed constitutional reform aims to remedy potential institutional weaknesses. The recent crisis has revealed some weaknesses in the control mechanisms of leadership. These will be taken into account in the reform. In the foreground, the reform will need to strengthen the spiritual life of the Order and gain more professed members. In addition, more appointments are to be admitted to the first class. The talks have already been started, and all members of the Order are invited to make proposals."
On the powers of the Lieutenant of the Grand Master, the press release states:
"According to the constitution of the Order, the Lieutenant of the Grand Master remains in office for one year, and during this time he is endowed with the same authority as a Grand Master. Before the end of his mandate, the Lieutenant of the Grand Master must convoke the Grand Council of State.

The Lieutenant of the Grand Master who is sovereign and religious head of the Order, has to devote himself entirely to the prosperity of the Order and must be a model for all members with a life according to Christian values. He exerts the highest authority. Together with the Sovereign Council, he enacts statutory provisions that are not contained in the Constitution, announces government acts and ratifies international agreements. The magisterium of the Grand Master resides at the Magistrate's palace in Rome. "

"Happy Easter" -- An Unusual Telephone Call Between Pope Francis and the Maltese Order

Pilgrimage Site of the Madonna delle Grazie in Alife (Campania)
A phone call from the pope reached Msgr. Sapienza there.
(Rome) Some telephone calla from Pope Francis are puzzling. Telephone contact recordings are certainly a hallmark of this pontificate which date back to the evening of March 13, 2013, when Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope in the Sistine Chapel. On the same evening, the new Catholic Church's chief spoke to various persons who were close to him. A sensation for a pope.
In the past four years, the faithful and the media have become accustomed to the fact that the Pope is always on the phone or mobile phone. This was also the case on Easter Monday. The addressee of the call was unusual, it was Monsignor Leonardo Sapienza, the head of the Papal House. The mission of Monsignor Sapienza corresponds to that of a secretary of the Roman dicasteries. He is the number two in the Pontifical Household, after his Prefect, Archbishop Georg Gänswein.

Msgr. Sapienza

Pope Benedict XVI Had appointed Sapienza to the Apostolic Protonotary two days before his unexpected resignation was announced. The award of this pontifical title was suspended by his successor, Pope Francis, shortly afterwards indefinitely. In any case, the reigning pope has a special appreciation for the head of the papal household, as yesterday's telephone call shows.
The telephone call was made by the local bishop of Alife-Caiazzo, Monsignor Valentino Di Cerbo. On Easter Monday, Sapienza, together with a group of Maltese Knights, had taken a trip to Campania. Mariano-Hugo Prince of Windisch-Graetz, Head of the Younger Line of the Austrian Princes, who had possessions in the area, had given the invitation to this effect. Prince Windisch-Graetz is Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Sovereign Order of Malta in Slovakia and Slovenia as well as Knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
When the knights visited the diocesan prayer site of the Madonna delle Grazie in Alife, Monsignor Sapienza received the telephone call from Pope Francis. That was a few minutes before he turned to the Regina Coelito the faithful on St. Peter's Square. Monsignor Sapienza told the Pope where he was, describing the chapel and landscape in the hinterland of Caserta. Monsignor Sapienza passed the mobile phone to the local bishop, whom the Pope also briefly greeted. The Pope wished Monsignor Sapienza to have a happy Easter, and he extended the same wishes to all the knights, the knights and the church rector. A sympathetic gesture, which was also recorded and published accordingly.
He was astonished that the Pope was calling a staff member on Easter Monday, who had just left the Vatican for a one-day trip, and whom he just had in his vicinity -- just to describe the landscape. In Rome it is speculated that the call would have had more to do with the Maltese knights who accompanied Monsignor Sapienza, and to whom papal closeness was to be demonstrated.
In the Sovereign of Malta, there was a violent dispute at the beginning of December 2016, which led to the resignation of the Grandmaster Fra Matthew Festing at the end of January by a direct papal command . Festing is also a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece. The Order has been under the supervision of a papal commissioner. A new Grand Master will be elected at the end of April. In the context of the conflict, the choice of a directional decision is the same. The Italian knights have a not insignificant role. Behind the scenes, it's about candidates and voices.

Pope and Media Silent as Caracas Cathedra Attacked by Reds

[American Thinker] Less than a week after 49 Egyptian Christians were massacred in two bombings in Alexandria and Tanta during Palm Sunday mass, Venezuela's socialist thugs stormed a Wednesday Holy Week mass, assaulting the presiding archbishop of Caracas, the church's worshippers and trashing and looting the church. The attack wasn't on the same level as the terrorist bombing, but it signaled an emboldened and increasingly violent state, which may well have been drawing inspiration from the horror in Egypt. 
As one wag on Lucianne.com put it:
Communism: the other religion of peace. 
The archbishop in question, Cardinal Jorge Urosa Sabino, was no ordinary archbishop. For years he has blasted the horrors of Venezuela's chavismo for leaving the poor more impoverished and hungry than ever, even as it purports to speak in its name. He's denounced dictatorship and warned of its ascent in the country. Along with many archbishops, he's tried to warn Pope Francis that materialistic communism is an unmitigated disaster for the country.

Brave Priest Suspended for Criticizing the Administration of Pope Francis on Islam and Amoris Laetitia

Edward Pushparaj at his Deaconal Ordination by the Archbishop of
Pescara. Because of criticism leveled against Pope Francis, the recently ordained priest
from India was supsended
(Rome) He, a Catholic priest, criticized Pope Francis on the last Palm Sunday in his homily - and was suspended.
According to Il Pescara of 10 April, Palm Sunday Mass in the Parish of St. Anthony of Padua in the town of Montesilvano in the Abruzzi in Italy came to grief. In the parish, the Indian priest, Edward Arulrai Pushparaj has been serving for some time. Don Pushparaj had already worked as a deacon in the parish. Already in the past he had criticized the office of Pope Francis. He did so in his sermon on Palm Sunday.
The priest had described "Pope Bergoglio, as an evil for the Church," according to the daily newspaper, referring to eye witnesses. The Indian criticized the "extreme openness to dialogue" with regard to positions and persons who represent positions that are openly contradictory to the doctrine of the Church. In particular, the priest criticized the "willingness to dialogue with Islam." His criticism also against the post-synodal letter Amoris laetitia was "hard".
Msgr. Tommaso Valentinetti, Archbishop of Pescara-Penne, was informed about the content of the sermon.This required enlightenment from the local pastor, Don Antonio Del Casale. The preaching had to serve the "meditation of the readings of the day, and certainly not to give personal judgments, especially if they were not in communion with the Pope," the archbishop said. "I think it is right to give the priest a time of rest and free him from his present obligations. It is certain that priestly ministry in the Catholic Church presupposes communion with the Holy Father." [LOL]
The archbishop also announced: "I intend to visit the parish of St Anthony of Padua at Easter, to take care of their sorrows."
The complaint against the Indian priest had been presented by the faithful to the Archbishop, as the daily newspaper had shown through. Some of the faithful even accuse the priest of "raising his voice to criticism" on the sidelines of his sermons.
Don Edward Arulrai Pushparaj was ordained priest in 2013 by his local bishop, Archbishop Antony Pappusamy of Madurai, but sent to the "sister diocese" of Pescara-Penne. Don Pushparaj comes from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. He had already begun his theological studies in India and then continued at the papal universities in Rome.

Media: Pope Francis Dismisses Vatican Swiss Employee

Greg Burke did not want to comment on the circumstances

Vatican City (kath.net/KAP) According to Italian media reports, a high-ranking Swiss employee in the Vatican has been dismissed by the personal intervention of Pope Francis. It was Eugene Hasler, secretary of Bishop Fernando Vergez Alzaga, the second man in the Governorate of the Vatican, onlinemedia reported on Thursday. The motive for the unusual papal intervention was to be internal tensions. Hasler appears to have an authoritarian style. The layman Eugene Hasler is the son of the former major of the Swiss Guard, Peter Hasler. His father served 42 years in the papal guard.

The Vatican confirmed Hasler's departure. Greg Burke did not want to comment on the circumstances. Hasler has not been working in the Vatican for a week, says Burke. Hasler's mother Maria Michela Petti, according to the reports, said that her son had not yet received a letter of dismissal.

The governor is responsible for the infrastructure of the Vatican, from the post office to the nursery. It is often referred to as the government of the smallest state in the world. At the top is the Italian Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello. The Spanish Bishop Vergez, the immediate superior of Hasler, as general secretary, is a sort of deputy head of government.

Pope Francis and the Roman Corpus Christi Procession -- A Difficult Relationship

(Rome) The Roman Eucharistic procession, does not seem particularly appealing to Pope Francis. At no other feast besides Holy Thursday does he engage in more and more revolutionary interventions.

750 years of Corpus Christi in Rome with Some Interruptions

After the celebration of the Holy Mass in front of the Lateran Basilica, the Eucharistic procession, the Eucharistic procession takes place on the evening of the Thursday after Holy Trinity Sunday to the papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Authoress of the Pope's Stations of the Cross Meditations Was a Participant of the "Illuminiati" - Meeting of 2015

Via Crucis at Colosseum. The meditations for 2017 come from
Anne-Marie Pelletier

(Rome) This year's Good Friday meditations at the Pope's Stations of the Cross, which traditionally take place at the Coliseum in Rome, are by the French theologian Anne-Marie Pelletier. The well-known alumna of the Institut Européen des Sciences des Religions (IESR) in Paris is not an unknown person.

Ratzinger Prize Winner 2014

A larger circle was announced in 2014, when the Joseph Ratzinger Prize was awarded. The prize has been awarded since 2011 by the Vatican Foundation Joseph Ratzinger - Benedict XVI. "For special scientific-theological services in the context of contemporary discourse." The foundation was established in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI. In the first two years, Benedict XVI personally awarded the prize. He also renounced his participation. According to the foundation, the prize is awarded by a board of trustees, but "in consultation" with Benedict.

Anne-Marie Pelletier was the first woman to receive the Ratzinger Prize. She was particularly honored for her studies on "Woman in Christianity". Cardinal Müller, who presented the award in 2014, spoke of an "outstanding figure of today's French Catholicism." In addition to the IESR, Pelletier also teaches at other academic institutions, including the Jewish Institute Universitaire Elie Wiesel. She is a member of the French Association for Bible Studies (ACFEB) and a member of the Institut Lustiger.

In May 2015 she appeared in the list of some 50 participants in a secret meeting, which took place on the day of Pentecost at the Pontifical University of the Gregorian in Rome (see The Church's "Illuminati" - List of Catholic Secret Members). The list reads as Who is Who the Kasperians. The secret meeting was to prepare strategies to bring about a coup in the October (upcoming) bishop's synod on the family. The objectives were: to admit married couples and homosexuals to the sacraments. In summary, the "Pastoral Innovation", as the Vaticanist Edward Pentin wrote from the National Catholic Register, was the goal.

Cardinal Marx, Archbishop Pontier, Bishop Büchel, were invited

Three presidents of European bishops' conferences were invited to the meeting. The most important among them was Cardinal Reinhard Marx, President of the German Bishops' Conference and Archbishop of Munich-Freising, on the side of which the DBK General Secretary, Jesuit Hans Langendörfer, was present. The other guests were Archbishop Georges Pontier, President of the French Episcopal Conference and Archbishop of Marseille, and Markus Büchel, President of the Swiss Episcopal Conference and Bishop of Sankt Gallen.

Anne-Marie Pelletier

The latter was not without piquancy, since St. Gallen in 1996 was the meeting point of the subversive, inner-Church secret circle, which named itself after the city. The secular group founded by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini (then archbishop of Milan) had its predecessor, Bishop Ivo Fürer, but the success of this tradition was continued by Markus Büchel. The invitation was of course only informal, because officially it was only a private meeting behind closed doors.

The invitation by the two presidents of the Bishops' Conferences of Germany and France reveal the "Rhenish Alliance," which was of considerable importance for the Second Vatican Council.

The list of participants reveals planning with military precision: not only Church representatives and theologians met. Among the invited guests were selected representatives of leading media such as ZDF, ARD, FAZ, NZZ and, of course, La Repubblica, the daily newspaper of Eugenio Scalfari - according to Pope Franziskus, the "only" newspaper he regularly reads. Pentin then pointed to Pelletier's view that the Church needed "a dynamic of mutual listening" by guiding Magisterium's conscience "and echoing of what the baptized say."

As Pentin reported, Pelletier also argued that the bishop's synod was "condemned to failure" when "simply reaffirming what the Church has always taught." A definite conception of the party. It is now a particularly rare honor for Pope Francis.

Tossati: "Priest Shortage? This Pope Gives no Incentive for Young Men"

(Rome) The question of the lack of priests, the abolition of celibacy as a prerequisite for the priesthood, and the admission of married men to the ordination of priests are now again discussed with particular insistence. In yesterday's edition of the La Vanguardia newspaper, their correspondent in Rome, Eusebio Val, published two full pages of an extensive report entitled "The Hour of Married Priests?" A reportage that allows interesting voices to be heard.

Snapshot at a priest's consecration: "Pray for priestly vocations"

La VanguardiaCatalonia 's largest daily newspaper, also reported on the positions of two leading Vatican officials, Sandro Magister and Marco Tosatti, both of whom are critical of the pontificate of Pope Francis. Both argue that the Argentine pope really insists that the abolition of celibacy is "not a solution" for the priestly shortage, but at the same time, in his own environment, a way of overcoming the priestly shortage which forsees the abolition of priestly celibacy.
The daily newspaper cites the Vaticanista Sandro Magister statement to Pope Francis:
"He always speaks in an ambiguous way. We should not be surprised. This is his style. The ambiguity opens a gap in order to discuss something, and then, in the end, to decide in the end. "
No less critical was Marco Tosatti. Pope Francis did not contribute to the promotion of priestly vocations and correcting the priestly shortage:
"It seems obvious to me that this pope is not providing an incentive for young men (towards the priesthood). The numbers say that, and you can not discuss numbers."
Religious orders and communities, such as the Franciscans of the Immaculate or the Priestly Society of the Holy Apostles, have many vocations." But this is exactly why they "are today attacked by their bishop or the pope."
And further:
"If young men join them [communities and orders], and you have one thing over their heads, then you can not expect vocations to arise in other places."
For both Vaticanistas, says La Vanguardia , the question of how the priestly deficit can be remedied is not about "liberalizing or relativizing the doctrine of the Church, but the exact opposite." The young people who have a calling feel serious and want to be taken seriously. They do not want the same thing in the Church that they can find elsewhere. They commit themselves for a lifetime. They must do this for what is worthwhile and not merely for a general discourse of goodness and solidarity. They are looking for more and they do not find it at the moment. That seems obvious to me."
