A risk that has been mentioned for some time but has not been discussed as publicly before as it is today. split – We already got it written down – not a word to use with it carelessness. For the Catholic Church, any split can be dramatic, and it really is. The Pope also often says that the verb is Greek DiabaluAny separation and division is the true work of Satan. So Catholics, if anything, do not generalize, and unite.
But for some time now, they were the same Clergy Suppose the practical regression of this term, drawing views that no one among those who are devoted and sincere could hope for. Let us understand: until now there are no conditions to suppose that the division is at the threshold of history or that the division lies in the plans and strategies of this or that ecclesiastical actor. There is a public debate that often includes this term. And it must be recognized in terms of “Vatican” news.
He was another cardinal Camilo RuiniAnd the Who chose the pages? from the paper To warn at least of “danger”. A few months ago, they were expecting that the doctrinal change around which the unity of the universal Church could revolve in the future would focus on part of the “blessings for gay couples”. This is the goal that has become the current In the past few weeks. We use the word “objective” because it is the progressive church, especially German, which pushes for this kind of blessing officially.
Rome meaning VaticanHas already expressed itself. But the Teutonic ecclesiastical circles did not receive acceptance without controversy over the position published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Indeed, it appears that a part of the German Church, net of its leaders, promoted some kind of counterattack on May 10, with unanimous blessing. Not exactly what is called in the terminology a sign of détente, and in this case it is not political in the secular sense but doctrinal yes. Before Ruini, it was Cardinal Gualtiero Passetti, president of the Italian Bishops ‘Conference today, who spoke of “other paths”, addressing those critical of Pope Francis’ actions. But the German Church is not a critic of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
The “split”, which should have come from the claims of the “oath”, may find space in ambitions Sinister, ultra-progressive. From blessings to gay couples one can move on to other requests. Among those who belong to a section of the German Church, they can be numbered: the abolition of priestly celibacy, the creation of “priestesses”, the gradual learning of the administration of parishes, with the possible expansion of the power to distribute the sacraments for the benefit of the Church. Secularists, thus creating “viri probati”, etc. Catholicism is no longer what we knew it to be. The pope, raised by opposing “camps”, has only raised an eyelid at present only by appealing to a sense of loneliness.
If we look back at the facts of these eight years of the papacy, it is possible to notice how, regardless of the openings in Delight And expressions in support of laws that introduce civil union laws into judicial systems, the Pope has not yet indulged in the cultural motives of unruly progressives. Some could argue that Francesco certainly did not embrace the demands and narratives of the conservatives, especially regarding Multiculturalism And immigration policies. However, overall, and so far at least, some of the battles of progressives operating within the church do not appear to have met poor defenses. Also for this reason, it became almost easy to discuss the “split” from the left, while the hypothesis of “splitting” the right lost a foundation over time.
Much of what is happening these days indicates that rupture – if it does happen – can be achieved through progressive wills. But it is also possible that this whole process is part, in a more clichéd way, of the consequences of trauma due to an immutable and evolving institution. But in this second case, it will be the so-called traditionalists and conservatives who can take “other paths”. None of the Catholics – it must be stressed – can hope for a “schism”. We should confine ourselves to emphasizing how much this word is used these days by some of the earlier (or institutional) actors in the Catholic Church. A term which, however, if one is a Catholic cannot be compared to “dangerous”.
