Rorate Caeli

It's certain

According to the most well-informed Vaticanist in this pontificate, Andrea Tornielli, Archbishop Angelo Amato, SDB, current Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, will be the new Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Tornielli even mentions the probable day of publication of this indication: next Wednesday.

This means that the list of those who may be picked by the Pope for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (Prefect) is reduced to two names: Cardinal Cañizares Llovera, Archbishop of Toledo, and Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, current secretary of the same dicastery.

Well, if we're really left with Canizares and Ranjith, that's a happy dilemma!

And who for CPDF?

Does anyone know what the Church can practically expect if Archbishop Ranjith Don is made the Prefect of Divine Worship?
Thank you.

Archbishop Angelo Amato and "Dominus Jesus"

"The declaration Dominus Jesus, published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is in large part the fruit of his labors"

To Dan Hunter... we can expect our Worship to be much more devine and we can expect much more discipline for the Sacraments. In other words... we can expect someone to finally perform the job as it was intended.

It was good to read so many positive comments in a previous post about the Archbishop of Toledo, Spain. I had not heard of him before and to hear anyone liken him to Abp Burke communicates well what I was hoping for.

You can expect a faithful bishop with Ranjith.

Dan, we can expect some Catholicism...and some humor !

Perhaps Ranjith's role in relation to Pope Benedict would be comparable to Card. Ratzinger's role in relation to JPII... can you imagine what "Pope Benedict's Rottweiler" might be capable of? Hmm...

Toledo, the last time I checked, didn't have a single traditional Mass in the diocese. Not sure why we'd want that example in the vatican at the highest level.

"Al posto di monsignor Amato all’ex Sant’Uffizio, dopo mesi di incertezza, sembra infine si sia consolidata la candidatura del gesuita spagnolo Luis Ladaria, dal 2004 segretario della Comissione teologica internazionale, teologo e antropologo, professore di teologia dogmatica alla Pontificia università Gregoriana. Era stato lui, nel maggio dell’anno scorso, a spiegare le ragioni che avevano portato la commissione ad esprimersi sul limbo e salvezza dei bambini che muoiono senza essere stati battezzati. Anche la nomina di padre Ladaria, che ha lavorato alla stesura della “Dominus Iesus”, dovrebbe essere resa nota mercoledì."

Anonymous,

in the Archdiocese of Toledo there are traditional Masses every Sunday and on days of obligation:

http://www.icrsp.org/Apostolats/Espagne.htm

Cardinal Cañizares-Llovera has celebrated the old Mass and also ordained priests for the ICRSP. Perhaps that puts your doubt to rest.

Entrevista de la Revista italiana JESUS al Cardenal Castrillón Hoyos (mayo 2008):

"At Toledo, Spain, for example, it is being evaluated whether it is convenient to erect a seminary specifically for the preparation for the extraordinary rite or to give special courses in the seminary of the diocese..."

What a waste of Amato's talents.

Hundreds of years from now (granting that the Parousia hasn't happened by then), the doctrinal and liturgical debates of today will be mere footnotes in the academic works of those times.


But the saints canonized in our days will remain in the liturgical books, to be venerated by all Catholics.

To be associated in the work of identifying who is worthy of canonization, and who is not; to be associated in the glorification of holy men and women; to be forever associated with the raising of saints to the altars; few things can be more precious than these honors.
