Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Vatican sends proposal letter to Lefebvrians

2013-01-21

The letter emphasizes the strong desire to overcome tensions. It also stresses the importance of unity and the need to avoid 'pride, anger and impatience.' The letter also adds that their disagreements should not prevent them from having true discussions and a spirit of openness. 


The text is addressed to Bishop Bernard Fellay, who serves as the superior of the Lefebvrists. In its first option, the Vatican says it could recognize the charism of Archbishop Lefebvre and the formation of priests who belong to the Society of St. Pius X. That is if they renounce all "counterproductive rhetoric, justifying and correcting theology and also publicly correcting others in the Church.” 

The second option allows the Society to base their arguments under the guidelines set by 'Donum Veritatis'. The document was written back in 1990. It deals with the dissidence of progressive theologians. As stated in the document the Vatican is not opposed to legitimate theological questions or differences, as long as those objections are expressed internally. The main goal of this would be to engage the Magisterium, and not to form a parallel division within the Church.
