Francis Begins Curial Shifts: Plans Major Liberalization of Curia? July 19, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in blogfoolery, different religion, disaster, episcopate, error, Francis, General Catholic, horror, Revolution, scandals, self-serving, the struggle for the Church.
I must stress that what is reported below is not yet substantiated. It comes from a source of unknown quality to me, a Catholic newspaper in Malaysia (but it was picked up by the German language site kath.net). I didn’t think Malaysia had much of a Catholic population, but whatevs. However, if true, it would be most disconcerting, to say the least. Abolishing the Pontifical Councils for the Laity and the Family and replacing them with a Congregation for “Pastoral Health Care” headed by arch-progressive Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga, Francis’ most eager collaborator? Removing Muller at the CDF and appointing Schoenborn in his stead? Will we soon be treated to the theological orthodoxy of balloon Masses?
The report via Eponymous Flower might be speculation, but if true, it would constitute a significant advance in the entrenchment of like-minded souls in the hierarchy and the institutionalization of Francis’ progressive agenda. Perhaps something to pray over, or against:
Accordjng to a report by the Malaysian Catholic weekly “Herald” Pope Francis plans personnel changes within the Curia. This suggests that the former prefect of the CDF, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller (68) will occupy the See if Mainz long since vacated by Cardinal Karl Lehmann. In return, the Viennese Cardinal Christoph Schönborn (71) is to switch to the Vatican and take over there, the management of the CDF, the Journal reported over the weekend, citing “well-informed Vatican sources” on its website. [Schoenborn, if he was ever much good when he was involved in the drafting of the 1990s catechism, has certainly drifted left in the past decade or so. He has persecuted faithful priests and shown himself very friendly to the sodomite agenda. His views are not nearly so orthodox as those of Muller’s, which weren’t just perfect to begin with. Muller and Francis have butted heads on many issues, with Muller directly rebuking several of Francis’ more outrageous claims in the past (there are so many, I know). I would not be surprised if Muller is moved out, and soon. Whether he will be replaced by Schoenborn or someone even worse remains to be seen]There were indications that the pope also plans the appointment of Cardinal Stanislaw Rylko (71), Polish cardinal and President of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, Archbishop of Krakow. He would assume the office of the 77-year-old Stanislaw Dziwisz, who has already reached the age limit for resignation.The paper refers to a decree by the Pope, according to which the Council for the Laity and for the Family will be merged on 1 September into a new office. Its statutes were published by the Vatican in early June. According to “Herald” it will be incorporated into an office of pastoral health care. [Could a more worldly and really inappropriate name be chosen? So we’ll be treated to “pastoral health care reform?”] The new formation will receive the status of a congregation with the decision making power. As head of the new Congregation, the Honduran Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga (73) has been selected, a close confidant of the pope and head of the Cardinal Council for a reform of the Curia.
