    Levada is to resign from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, leaving Müller in pole position to substitute him. Meanwhile, the Vatican library is getting a new librarian and Bertone’s substitution appears imminent

    Two important (cardinal) appointments are expected in the Vatican before the beginning of the summer holidays. The most significant one is the nomination of Joseph Ratzinger’s second successor as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This is a delicate and crucial role not only because faith is at the heart of Benedict XVI’s pontificate, but also because this is the dicastery that deals with scorching dossiers on cases of sex abuse against minors and it also manages the dialogue process with the Society of St. Pius X. Seventy six year old American cardinal, William Levada, intends to retire to the U.S. After months of deliberation, the Pope is likely to choose the 64 year old Bishop of Regensburg, Gerhard Ludwig Müller, for the post of Prefect of the Congregation. Unless there are any last minute surprises (other candidates considered include an American prelate and a French cardinal) he is expected to take over from Levada in the next few months.
     
     
     

    Another expected appointment  is that of the Librarian of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. The post has been vacant since outgoing librarian Cardinal Raffaele Farina (who will turn 79 next September) presented his resignation recently. The man that seems tipped to win the post is 68 year old French archbishop, Jean-Louis Bruguès, a Dominican. But even in this case there could be last minute surprises as the Pope could choose a cardinal from the Roman Curia who is nearing the end of his mandate. Vatican Librarians traditionally keep their role well beyond the age of 75.
     
     

    Next 2 December the Vatican Secretary of State, Tarcisio Bertone, will turn 78. When Bertone reached resignation age three years ago, Benedict XVI sent him an affectionate letter asking him to stay on. In an interview with Italian daily newspaper La Stampa last March Bertone stated: “Serving the Holy Father is always a strong experience of pastoral charity because of the way he leads the Church with clear judgement and moderate firmness. Obviously, however, whether my service continues or ends depends on Benedict XVI’s decision.” Many believe that the Pope wants to keep Bertone by his side for at least another two years, that is, until Cardinal Bertone turns 80. The Pope chose him for the role of Secretary of State shortly after his appointment as Pope in 2005 - although the nomination was announced in June 2006 and the installation the following September.
     
     

     

    According to other observers, in recent days, Benedict XVI has allegedly been considering the possibility of changing the Holy See's “prime minister”. The Pope did reiterate the complete trust he had in his collaborators in light of the confidential document leak scandal that has been rattling the Vatican in recent weeks. And it is true that in cases such as this, the Pope tends to seek to strengthen his entourage rather than weaken it. However, it is also true that were a new Secretary of State to be appointed, this appointment would not be a result of the Vatileaks scandal - the leak of confidential documents that were published in Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi’s book Sua Santità (His Holiness). The documents mentioned Bertone as a target amongst others - but for age reasons. As the Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, stressed recently in an interview: “Cardinal Bertone is 78 years old. It is no secret that his departure from the Secretariat of State is imminent.”
     
     

    Bertone had no background in papal diplomacy but was chosen for the bond of collaboration and trust which he had established with Ratzinger between 1995 and 2002 when he was Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith led by the future Pope. A bond which remains strong. The fact that the Pope knows him personally and that he collaborated directly with him before and after his election as Pope, are criteria to bear in mind when predicting who Bertone’s successor will be. That is, if the Pope, who is the only one who can decide on the replacement, really intends to go down this route after considering all potential candidates and choosing one individual in whom he places his complete trust. Another question to be resolved is the candidate’s nationality: the fact that the Pope is not Italian himself, leads one to assume he will opt for an Italian right hand man.
     
     

    John Paul II, who was elected in 1978, kept French cardinal, Jean Villot, in the role but said that the accession of a non Italian Pope to the throne of Peter would have led to an Italian being chosen as Secretary of State. Indeed, after Villot’s unexpected death the following March, Agostino Casaroli was nominated to the post and Angelo Sodano in 1991. Benedict XVI could, however, decide differently. Finally, another question which needs to be resolved is whether or not to choose a prelate with previous diplomatic experience.

    Yeah, that's a thought and Bp. Fellay would be digging it!

    Rome may just be rearranging chairs on the deck of the Titanic

    Perhaps Rome shall replace him with +Fellay, to lead the "reform of the reform,"
    insomuch as to deceive, if possible, a few more: even of the elect. Behold, I have
    told it to you beforehand.

    (Douay-Rheims version.)

    I heard +Fellay 15 years ago, give a speech in Arcadia, when he spoke for 2-1/2
    hours, waxing eloquently about his attraction to this "plum" that Rome was
    offering to him. He was euphoric. In retrospect, he sounded like Eve trying to
    describe her impression of the Forbidden Fruit hanging in the Tree of the Knowledge
    of Good and Evil. Try as I may, I could not quite grasp what it was that got him so
    excited. And likewise, poor Adam might have had a hard time understanding what
    was getting Eve so worked up. This was the same Rome that refused to discuss
    doctrine, even then. And it remains the same Rome that refuses to discuss doctrine.
    So what, exactly, is the "plum" that +Fellay was thinking about?

    If there is an appointment for him to head the CDF, the answer is just that.

    If that is what happens, then everything makes sense.

    I don't like to choose Occam's Razor as a first option, but sometimes it's very
    helpful.

  • This news article might be of relevance here. It was apparently written just before Cardinal Levada's resignation, but is about the appointment of a new vice president, who may now possibly act as president, for Ecclesia Dei.

    "Pope names US archbishop to new post to aid talks with traditionalists

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- In an effort to aid reconciliation attempts with traditionalist Catholics, Pope Benedict XVI has named U.S. Archbishop J. Augustine Di Noia to fill a newly created post of vice president of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei."

    "The appointment of a high-ranking prelate to this position is a sign of the Holy Father's pastoral solicitude for traditionalist Catholics in communion with the Holy See and his strong desire for the reconciliation of those traditionalist communities not in union with the See of Peter," the Vatican said in a written statement June 26.

    The statement, released by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which oversees "Ecclesia Dei," said the New York-born Dominican is a respected theologian who has devoted much time and attention to the doctrinal issues under review in current talks with the breakaway traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, led by Bishop Bernard Fellay. The society rejects some of the teachings of Vatican II as well as the modernizing reforms, especially to the liturgy, that followed in its wake.

    Archbishop Di Noia told Catholic News Service June 26 the Vatican needed to help people who have strong objections to the council see "that these disagreements don't have to be dividing or keep us from the same Communion table."

    "It is possible to have theological disagreements while remaining in communion with the see of Peter," he said.

    "Part of what we're saying is that when you read the documents (of Vatican II), you can't read them from the point of view of some liberal bishops who may have been participants (at the council), you have to read them at face value," Archbishop Di Noia told CNS. "Given that the Holy Spirit is guiding the church, the documents cannot be in discontinuity with tradition."

    The doctrinal office said the archbishop's experience as secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments since 2009 "will facilitate the development of certain desired liturgical provisions" in the celebration of the 1962 Roman Missal, commonly known as the Tridentine rite.

    Archbishop Di Noia, who said his reassignment from the worship congregation after only three years had left him "flabbergasted," will be replaced in that job by Bishop Arthur Roche of Leeds, England, the Vatican announced.

    The doctrinal congregation also emphasized that Archbishop Di Noia enjoys "broad respect" in the Jewish community, which "will help in addressing some issues that have arisen in the area of Catholic-Jewish relations as the journey toward reconciliation of the traditionalist communities has progressed."

    In addition to the highly publicized position of Bishop Richard Williamson, a traditionalist bishop who denies the Holocaust, public statements by Bishop Fellay, the society's superior general, leave in doubt whether the society as a whole accepts the entirety of "Nostra Aetate," the Vatican II document stating that the Jewish people cannot be blamed for the death of Jesus Christ.

    "Ecclesia Dei" oversees the pastoral care of Catholics who have a special devotion to the older Latin liturgy. Pope Benedict placed the commission under the doctrinal congregation in 2009 to better address the doctrinal issues emerging from talks between the Vatican and the Society of St. Pius X.

    U.S. Cardinal William J. Levada remains president of the commission and Msgr. Guido Pozzo continues as the commission's secretary.

    The archbishop's appointment is significant as it dedicates additional expertise and manpower to the questions still under consideration by the Society of St. Pius X.

    Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman, told journalists that the new position is a sign of "the importance and delicate nature of the kind of difficulties" with which the commission is dealing and should not be seen as an indication of how things are proceeding with the society.

    Questions under examination when talks began in 2009 included the concept of tradition; the post-Vatican II Roman Missal; the interpretation of Vatican II in continuity with Catholic doctrinal tradition; the themes of the unity of the church and the Catholic principles of ecumenism; the relationship between Christianity and non-Christian religions; and religious freedom.

    At a high-level meeting at the Vatican June 13, Vatican officials presented Bishop Fellay with a draft document proposing a personal prelature as the most appropriate instrument for any future canonical recognition of the society, in the event doctrinal differences are resolved. Vatican officials also gave Bishop Fellay their evaluation of the society's latest statement on those doctrinal differences.

    Following the meeting, the society said that unresolved "doctrinal difficulties" with Vatican II and the church's subsequent liturgical reform could lead to a "new phase of discussions" over possible reconciliation with Rome.

    The talks have focused on the wording of a "doctrinal preamble" outlining what the Vatican has said are "some doctrinal principles and criteria for the interpretation of Catholic doctrine necessary to guarantee fidelity" to the formal teaching of the church.

    In a June 25 letter to SSPX bishops and priests published on the Internet, the society's secretary general, Father Christian Thouvenot, wrote that Bishop Fellay considered the Vatican's latest version of the preamble to be "clearly unacceptable."

    Archbishop Di Noia said his task will be to help resolve the impasse over the terms of an agreement.

    "The theological dialogue has gone on for three years but now (the pope) is hoping to find the language or the modality for a reconciliation," Archbishop Di Noia told CNS. "We're at the stage of finessing, to help them find a formula which respects their own theological integrity."

    "It seems to everyone that (a reconciliation) is close, but now it needs a kind of push," he said.

    When Archbishop Di Noia was undersecretary of the doctrinal congregation, he was involved with the pope's establishment in 2009 of the personal ordinariates, special structures for former Anglicans who want to be in full communion with the Catholic Church while preserving aspects of their Anglican spiritual and liturgical heritage.

    "It's possible that (Pope Benedict) had that experience in view" when selecting him for his latest job, the archbishop said.

    Blessed John Paul II named then-Father Di Noia to the No. 3 spot at the doctrinal congregation in 2002, when it was headed by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. The archbishop has worked extensively with Pope Benedict, especially as a member of the International Theological Commission when the current pope was its president."
    "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic ... This is a statement I would sign in my blood." St. Montfort, Secret of the Rosary. I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.

    New nominations in the Holy See [Updated]


    -Archbishop Joseph Augustine Di Noia, OP, former Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, named Vice-President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.

    - Arthur Roche, Bishop of Leeds (now Archbishop), a representative of the fine post-conciliar liturgical establishment in Britain, named new Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship. Congratulations to all involved!

    -Vincenzo Paglia, Bishop of Terni (now Archbishop), a grand master of the Sant'Egidio movement, named new President of the Pontifical Council for the Family.

    - Jean-Louis Bruguès OP, Archbishop, Secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education, named new Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church.

    - The Pope has also accepted the resignation of the Bishop of Merlo-Moreno, Argentina, Bishop Fernando Bargalló (previous post on the matter).

    Source: Bollettino.


    It sounds like the appointment of Archbishop Joseph Augustine Di Noia would be an encouragement to +Fellay and supporters but the appointment of - Arthur Roche, Bishop of Leeds (now Archbishop),is to even things out. Archbishop (now) Rocha is known to be extremely liberal even to the liberals on La Ciguena de la Torre article of today. He is known to be a self declared enemy of Summuorum Pontificum (for what SP is worth).

  • Messa in Latino on Archbishop Roche (Their google translation):

    Bishop Roche Secretary of Divine Worship and the Bishop Paglia Family. But Di Noia to the Ecclesia Dei

    Delusional, and defines the proper Colafemmina. How can we not blame him. But there are sure to be back and perhaps intent-offs in management "policy" of the Church, it would be naive to deny or ignore-that go beyond appearances. In this somewhat 'Colafemmina we deviate from the thought of that he expresses in the article shown below.
    Nevertheless, it remains very dismayed by certain appointments to high positions of hostile prelates Tradition (and hostile is an understatement) and openly out of the line Ratzinger. And we would really wonder why the Pope has done so.
    What most astonishes and worries is obviously the choice of name, elevating him to the dignity aricivescovile, the English Bishop Roche as the new Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (replaces Monsignor Di Noia, now Vice President of Ecclesia of) ... He, Roche, so contrary to tradition, so opposition to Summorum Pontificum ... and right there, the secretary of the Congregation of Rites already? To remain stunned and disappointed.
    Roche in 2007 he had to express their opposition and fierce aversion Summorum Pontificum enough to get to write a pastoral letter to "prevent" the implementation of the papal document in his diocese and to close a parish in which he had already begun to celebrate the S. Mass according to the ancient rite, with much concourse of faithful ( here the news that the Bishop has earned the honor of seeing his name placed on our list "The trahison des clers").
    In April of 2009 risked seeing the negative effects of Roche, had been elected to the primatial chair of Westminster, but fortunately the Holy Spirit wanted Archbishop of Birmingham, Vincent Nichols, who made ​​by far the support for the encouragement of 'Ordinary of Anglican converts to Catholicism ( here the news).
    Of course, the choice of the Pope will have had some weight to efforts by Roche during the work of decades, the International Commission on English in the Liturgy, of which he was President, coordinating and promoting the new English translation of the Missal: Another success was dear to Benedict XVI.

    Nevertheless, shame really for the appointment and replacement of Di Noia.
    The latter had come to the Congregation for Divine Worship only in June 2009 as Segregario ( here the news) and in that capacity had worked so hard with praiseworthy commitment to the question "Anglican" to give impetus to the drafting of the Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus (9.11 .2009) and all'erigendo convertitesi ordinariate for Anglicans to Catholicism (created shortly after this the news). Di Noia was also a member of the March 2012 Board of Examiners expressly desired by the Pope for the study and correction of the Neocatechumenal liturgies ( here the news).
    The will of Benedict XVI of wanting to rely on Di Noia (Dominican theologian Ratzinger knew her well-trained that when he learned little econ him to the Congregation of the Faith, both called by Pope John Paul II) is a post created especially manifest to rely on such a valuable and faithful contributor to conclude with a (hopefully) happy result the question "lefrebviana". It 'also manifest the utmost care and attention of the Pope, because the agreement is reached: Benedict XVI is really the heart to give the much desired SSPX canonical recognition, which would so well to the Universal Church. And maybe even get to that, the Pope chose to "sacrifice" Divine Worship while giving the "Ecclesia Dei" (which is handling relations with Fellay) the crucial support in these trying times that semrano decisive.

    On Mgr. Straw had already been abundantly reported during his ill-fated "candidacy" in succession to Cardinal Scola, Patriarch of Venice ( here , here and here ). Now, indeed, his appointment to the Pontifical Council for the Family is of particular concern: the prelate did not "ideas" strange matter. What we regret is that the arrangement Curiale Straw has unfortunately happened, and that the task is, with certain exceptions, safe conduct for the purple.
    Here is the article on Colafemmina two appointments.




    La Ciguena compares this appointment of Rocha as hiring a pyromaniac at the Firehouse. How serious can Rome be about the SSPX restoring anything.
