It’s been a busy week with Pope Francesco After the siege due to the epidemic and its restrictions, it returned to charting the prospects for the Catholic Church tomorrow. There are many news and events that must be taken into account in order to comprehensively recount these past seven days in the sacred palaces of the Vatican: among them, the meeting with United States President Joe Biden, the special audience devoted to the youth of the re-establishment of communism (the date passed somewhat quietly but It is worth thinking about) and the sinking of Zahn’s law which relates, albeit indirectly, to Catholic dogmatic circles. Let’s go in order.
Photos of the summit between Jorge Mario Bergoglio and CEO of the USA circulating on the Internet: it’s hard to take a quick look at those shots, not to notice a particular difference between smiles and postures, compared to times of the day. Meeting with Donald Trump. Bergoglio seemed more relaxed and comfortable. Joe Biden He is a Democrat who, in addition to being a convinced abortor, has been at the center of the electoral debate due to the positions expressed in bioethics. But all this seems to be of relative importance to Francis. The same post-summit statements by the President of the United States seem to diminish the inherent problem of some consensus, provided there is a problem with the Pope.
Biden being an abortifacient, during the election campaign, conservative cardinals, led by the American Raymond Leo Burke, raised the question of the legality of awarding the Eucharist. Moreover, with regard to the doctrine, there are some doubts. The bishops of the United States also analyzed the issue by creating a true special commission. So much so that, in recent months, there has been talk of a “Bed Commission”. But Bergoglio, with this week’s session, sealed his version of things. which states that Biden can continue, freely and in full conscience, to receive the company. Another hemispheric opening of the American bipolar is hard to call news. Then, as we mentioned, there is a meeting with the youth re-establishing communism.
As written by Republic, the Argentine Pope would have asked, young communists to advance their way. This too can be surprising, but only to a certain extent. This – as we have been able to explain on several occasions – is the papacy of popular movements, with the environment, and the welcome of immigrants For everyone And protect the economic and existential parties of the planet to be the link. Bergoglio, as a Jesuit, is a man who is able to overcome ideological and doctrinal barriers, focusing above all on the elements of compatibility between facts that can seem very different from each other.
However, the week we leave behind is also shipwreck week Ddl Zan, which followed the publication of a comprehensive note by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Document published by the Journal in an article signed by Phyllis Mante. The Vatican, which had not taken a stand against a law extending hate crimes to the discriminators identified in the bill, was concerned above all about the lack of freedom of expression that would have been provided and in part by discriminating judgment through ideologies. We’ll talk about it again, with good probability on a legal basis from the ground that Enrico Letta would have liked to agree without dialogue and at any cost. In this sense, the victory of the Holy See is to be expected, which did not go beyond the parliamentary level but could have directed the work of some Catholic parliamentarians who did not feel a desire to go forward with the respected Zhan text.
