Pope: Prayer, life, faith keep flame of Christian life alight
09 June 2021, 08:49

In his penultimate catechesis on prayer, Pope Francis emphasises the relationship between constant prayer, faith, and daily life.
By Christopher Wells

For more than a year – beginning in May 2020 – Pope Francis has offered an ongoing cycle of teaching on “prayer” during his weekly General Audience.

On Wednesday, on his next to last catechesis on the subject, the Holy Father reflected on “perseverance in prayer,” and what it means to “pray constantly” – the invitation and command of scripture, taken from St Paul’s First Letter to the Thessalonians.

This invitation was the inspiration for the journey of the Russian pilgrim in the 19th century ascetical work The Way of the Pilgrim. Pope Francis recalled that the pilgrim learned to say the Jesus prayer, “a prayer that, little by little, adapts itself to the rhythm of breath and extends throughout the day.”

Pope: The Church is invited to listen actively to families and involve them in pastoral care
09 June 2021, 14:45

Pope Francis underlines the importance of collaboration involving the clergy, married couples and families in the mission of evangelization in a video message to participants at a forum to reflect on the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
By Fr. Benedict Mayaki, SJ

Pope Francis on Wednesday addressed participants at a forum organized by the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life, to discuss strategies for the application of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, five years on from its promulgation in March 2016.

In a video message, the Pope highlighted that the forum represents an essential moment of dialogue between the Holy See, episcopal conferences, movements and family associations in keeping with the Amoris Laetitia Family year, announced by Pope Francis during his Angelus Message on 27 December 2020. This is because “the Holy Spirit makes it a fruitful moment for the Church, pastors and laypersons together, to come together to listen to the concrete needs of families and to help each other in undertaking the processes necessary to renew the proclamation of the Church.”

The webinar, that takes place from 9 – 12 June, will see delegates from the Family Offices of over 60 episcopal Conferences and more than 30 international movements in attendance. The participants will gather under the theme: “Where do we stand with Amoris laetitia? Strategies for the application of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation.”

Pope: Together in love, we Christians can change the world
09 June 2021, 19:45

Pope Francis has sent a video message to members of the John 17 Movement, an ecumenical initiative that helps build communion of friendship and love among Christian Churches towards unity.
By Robin Gomes

Everything is born of a fraternal encounter. Love changes the world, but it changes us first. Pope Francis shared these thoughts in a video message to the John 17 Movement, an ecumenical group whose members began a two-day retreat on Wednesday at St. Joseph’s Seminary and College in Yonkers, New York.

The John 17 Movement was started by Pentecostal pastor Joe Tosini in 2013. Despite being a non-Catholic, he felt a strong urge within him to pray for the newly-elected Pope Francis. Tosini has met the Pope several times.

The Movement takes its name from St. John’s Gospel, chapter 17, where Jesus prays, “That they may be one”. The Movement is holding its retreat on the theme, “Relational Reconciliation, a New Way to Christian Reconciliation”.

Pope Francis appoints the new Archbishop for Durban
09 June 2021, 15:40

Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Mandla Siegfried Jwara, C.M.M., as the new Archbishop of South Africa’s Archdiocese of Durban.
By Vatican News staff writer

Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, O.F.M., 80, from the pastoral governance of the Archdiocese of Durban in South Africa.

Cardinal Napier, who has been Archbishop of Durban since 1992 and who was raised to the College of Cardinals in 2001, tendered his resignation in 2016 on his 75th birthday, in line with the provisions of Canon Law. Pope Francis, however, asked Cardinal Napier to stay on as Ordinary of the Archdiocese. On 8 March 2021, Cardinal Napier reached the age of 80 and became ineligible to vote in a future conclave.

Update:  Cardinal Marx' resignation

https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2021-06/pope-francis-rejects-cardinal-marx-resignation.html
Pope Francis rejects Cardinal Marx' resignation: 'Continue as Archbishop of Munich'
10 June 2021, 13:04

Pope Francis rejects the resignation of Cardinal Reinhard Marx as Archbishop of Munich. “Thank you for your Christian courage, which does not fear to be humbled before the reality of sin,” the Pope writes to the Cardinal. “Taking up the crisis, personally and communally, is the only fruitful path.”
By Vatican News

“If you are tempted to think that by confirming your mission and not accepting your resignation, this Bishop of Rome (your brother who loves you) does not understand you, think of what Peter felt before the Lord when, in his own way, he presented his resignation,” by presenting himself as a sinner, and received the answer, “Shepherd my sheep.” It is with this image that Pope Francis concludes his letter in which he rejects the resignation presented by Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich and Freising. In a letter to the Pope dated 21 May – which was later published – the German Cardinal explained the reasons for his gesture. He said he had asked the Pope to step down from the leadership of the German diocese because of the abuse scandal in Germany and the response of the episcopate, which he considered insufficient.

Pope Francis responded with his own letter, written in Spanish and published in Spanish and German by the Holy See Press Office on Thursday. In it, the Pope thanks Cardinal Marx for the “Christian courage that does not fear the cross, that does not fear being humiliated before the tremendous reality of sin.” Francis recalls that “the whole Church is in crisis because of the abuse issue,” maintaining that “the Church today cannot take a step forward without addressing this crisis” because “the politics of the ostrich leads nowhere, and the crisis must be addressed by our Paschal faith. Sociologisms and psychologisms are useless.” Therefore, he adds, “taking up the crisis, personally and communally, is the only fruitful way, because we do not come out of a crisis alone but in community.”

Update:  Cardinal Marx' resignation

https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/247956/cardinal-marx-pope-francis-resignation-decision-a-great-challenge
Cardinal Marx: Pope Francis’ resignation decision a ‘great challenge’
By CNA Staff
Munich, Germany, Jun 10, 2021 / 12:00 pm

Cardinal Reinhard Marx said Thursday that Pope Francis’ decision not to accept his resignation as Catholic archbishop of Munich and Freising is a “great challenge.”

Marx made the comment June 10, hours after the Vatican published a letter from the pope asking the 67-year-old cardinal to remain in charge of the archdiocese in southern Germany.

“I find the pope’s decision to be a great challenge. After that, simply going back to the agenda cannot be the way for me and also not for the archdiocese,” he said in a statement on the archdiocese’s website.

CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner, reported that Marx expressed surprise at the swiftness of the pope’s response to his offer to resign, made public on June 4.
 
Responding to the pope’s refusal of his resignation, Marx said: “I did not expect that he would react so quickly and I did not expect his decision that I should continue my service as archbishop of Munich and Freising.”

“I am moved by the comprehensiveness and the very brotherly tone of his letter and feel how much he understands and has accepted my request. In obedience I accept his decision as I promised him.”
 
The cardinal said that he would now need to reflect on “what new ways we can go -- even in the face of a history of multiple failures -- to proclaim and witness to the Gospel” in the Munich archdiocese.

He said: “The bishop is not alone in this and in the next few weeks I will think about how we can together contribute even more to the renewal of the Church here in our archdiocese and as a whole; because the pope takes up much of what I mentioned in my letter to him and gives us important impulses.”

“What I also underlined in my declaration remains: that I have to bear personal responsibility and also have an ‘institutional responsibility,’ especially in view of those affected [by clerical sexual abuse], whose perspective needs to be included even more effectively.”

Cardinal Kasper ‘very worried’ about German Church’s ‘Synodal Way’
By CNA Staff

Passau, Germany, Jun 10, 2021 / 03:35 am

An influential theologian considered to be close to Pope Francis has said that he is “very worried” about the German Catholic Church’s controversial “Synodal Way.”

Cardinal Walter Kasper said in a June 8 interview with the Passauer Bistumsblatt that he hoped the prayers of faithful Catholics could serve as a corrective.

The 88-year-old German cardinal said: “I have not yet given up hope that the prayers of many faithful Catholics will help to steer the Synodal Way in Germany on Catholic tracks.”

The Synodal Way is a multi-year process bringing together bishops and lay people to discuss four main topics: the way power is exercised in the Church; sexual morality; the priesthood; and the role of women.

The German bishops initially said that the process would end with a series of “binding” votes -- raising concerns at the Vatican that the resolutions might challenge the Church’s teaching and discipline.

Kasper told the weekly newspaper of the Diocese of Passau, in southeastern Germany, that the Synodal Way’s organizers should have paid greater attention to Pope Francis’ 2019 letter to the German Church.

Catholics submit ‘dubium’ to Vatican asking if Church in Germany is in schism
By CNA Staff

Bochum, Germany, Jun 10, 2021 / 07:00 am

Three Catholics have submitted a “dubium” to the Vatican asking if the Church in Germany is in schism.

The trio from the Diocese of Essen formally requested a ruling from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, reported CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner.

A dubium, from the Latin word meaning “doubt,” is a question addressed to the Vatican’s doctrinal congregation that can be answered with a “yes” or “no.”

Pope to seminarians: Be available for others
10 June 2021, 12:01

Pope Francis addresses a group of Italian seminarians and their formators and stresses the importance of seeing the seminary as the family of Nazareth.
By Vatican News staff writer

Pope Francis opened his address to seminarians from Italy’s Marche region by asking them to imagine the Seminary “as the family of Nazareth” where Jesus was welcomed, cared for and formed in view of the mission entrusted to him by the Father.

The priest is in fact “a disciple continually on his way in the footsteps of the Master”, and his formation, continued the Pope, begins in the seminary.

Cardinal Marx: ‘I am moved by the Pope’s words, I accept his decision'
11 June 2021, 10:51

The Cardinal Archbishop of Munich and Freising responds to Pope Francis’ invitation to continue in his post "in obedience". Commenting on the letter with which the Pope rejected his resignation and urged him to continue in his service as Archbishop, the Cardinal says “it is time for change.”
By Alessandro De Carolis - Vatican City

"In a spirit of obedience I accept his decision." This sentence stands out among others that seal a close exchange of letters, a long-distance conversation that arouses surprise and emotion in Cardinal Marx. To his letter of 21 May, in which the Cardinal asked to resign from his post as pastor of Munich and Freising, Pope Francis replied on Thursday, 10 June, inviting him to stay on. The Cardinal immediately expressed his assent to the Pope's will.

"I was not counting on such a quick reaction," writes Cardinal Marx in the text published on the archdiocese's website, "nor was I expecting the decision that I should continue in my service."

Korean Bishop Lazarus You Heung-sik is the new Prefect of the Clergy
11 June 2021, 14:59

Pope Francis accepts the resignation of Cardinal Beniamino Stella due to age limit. As has already happened with the Congregation for Worship, the change of leadership for the Dicastery that deals with priests will be preceded by an apostolic visit.
By Vatican News

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Beniamino Stella and appointed 69-year-old Lazarus You Heung-sik, bishop of Daejeon, Korea, as Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy. The new Prefect knows the Pope and welcomed him to his diocese during the Pope's trip to Korea in August 2014.

Born in 1951 and ordained a priest for the Diocese of Daejeon, Lazarus You Heung-sik became a coadjutor in the same diocese in 2003 and two years later assumed full responsibility. The new Prefect was the head of the Korean Bishops' Conference's Peace Committee and traveled to North Korea four times.

The appointment of a Korean bishop to the Congregation for the Clergy follows that of Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle at the head of Propaganda Fide and testifies to Pope Francis' attention to the Asian continent.

The Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life has issued a general Decree — which has the force of law – that regulates the duration and number of governing mandates (with a maximum of 10 consecutive years) in international associations of the faithful, both private and public; and the necessary representativeness of the members in the election process of the international governing body. The measure, approved in forma specifica by Pope Francis and promulgated on Friday, will come into force in three months. It will be binding on all associations of the faithful and other entities recognised or erected by the Dicastery.

Vatican Becciu investigation: Searches carried out at Sardinian diocese, social cooperative
By CNA Staff

Rome Newsroom, Jun 11, 2021 / 05:50 am

Searches were carried out this week on the Italian island of Sardinia in connection with a Vatican investigation into accusations of embezzlement by Cardinal Angelo Becciu.

The searches took place at the offices of Spes Cooperative, a limited liability corporation owned and legally represented by Becciu’s brother Antonino, as well as at the Diocese of Ozieri and its diocesan charity, Caritas.

Ozieri is the former diocese of Becciu, who is from Sardinia.

Rome prosecutor Maria Teresa Gerace is reported to have ordered the searches at the request of Vatican prosecutors.

Becciu’s lawyer issued a statement June 10 welcoming the search and insisting that a review of documents would show that Becciu’s actions were legitimate.

Pope at Angelus: Discover the presence of God in our lives
13 June 2021, 12:20

At his Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis reminds us to have attentive eyes in order to see how God’s hidden presence is always there and at work in our lives and history.
By Vatican News staff writer

Speaking to pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis reflected on the day’s Gospel: the two parables Jesus tells that open up an understanding of the mystery of God and how human events unfold. The parables show us that everyday life, which sometimes may seem monotonous or difficult, is always “inhabited by God’s hidden presence”, he noted, and it takes our attentive eyes to be able “to seek and find God in all things”.

Amoris laetitia webinar equips leaders to build up sacramental marriages in the Church
Rome Newsroom, Jun 13, 2021 / 08:50 am

An online Vatican meeting on Amoris laetitia brought together hundreds of people this week to discuss how to better support sacramental marriages and families in the Catholic Church.

Organized by the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, the four-day webinar centered on the question: "Where do we stand with the application of Amoris laetitia?"

Amoris laetitia is Pope Francis’ 2016 apostolic exhortation on love in the family, written following the 2014 and 2015 synods on the family.

The closed-door meeting June 9 to 12 was attended by more than 300 delegates from 30 international movements and the family offices of over 60 bishops’ conferences.

In his introduction on the first day of the forum, Cardinal Kevin Farrell, prefect of the laity, family and life dicastery, recalled a 2017 visit by Pope Francis to the offices of the Vatican department.

During that visit, Pope Francis said “Amoris laetitia must be read together, from the first to the last chapter, without ‘cherrypicking’ those sections which we consider easier to implement from those that are more challenging,” Farrell stated.

Farrell quoted the pope's words that the apostolic exhortation should "be read as an integral whole."

"The webinar should be seen within the Synodal process as a sign of the Church coming together to ensure that the family is given a central place within the missionary outreach of every institution or Parish community within the Church," the cardinal said. "The Church is at the service of the family, to work with it, to hope in its great potential, in the certainty that 'the Church is good for the family and the family is good for the Church.'"

Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernández of La Plata, Argentina, a friend and known ghostwriter of Pope Francis, gave a presentation on “accompanying, discerning, and integrating fragility,” on the last day of the forum.

According to a brief summary from the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, Fernández's address began with an analysis of the controversial chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia.

Fernández said in that chapter, Pope Francis "refers to 'situations which do not yet or no longer correspond to [the Church's] teaching on marriage,' the so-called 'irregular situations.' He proposes a path of discernment for greater integration. In any case, for Pope Francis, this is a secondary issue. What interests him more are 'the two central chapters, dedicated to love.'"
 
The forum was organized as part of the ongoing Amoris Laetitia Family Year.

In a video message sent on the first day of the online forum June 9, Pope Francis “the family is ‘a domestic Church,’ the place in which the sacramental presence of Christ acts between spouses and between parents and children.”

As the Rome-based Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) kicks off its 4-day Conference on Monday, Pope Francis sends a message on how the world needs to rebuild after the current crisis.
By Robin Gomes

Pope Francis has pledged the support of the Holy See and the Catholic Church for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in its “dedication to a more just world, at the service of our defenseless and needy brothers and sisters”.  He urged special attention for the poor rural food producers, who are more likely to suffer from malnutrition and hunger.

The Pope made the remarks on Monday in a message to Michal Kurtyka, the Polish Minister of Climate and Environment, who is chairing FAO’s 42nd Conference at it headquarters in Rome, June 14-18.  While reviewing the state of food and agriculture in the world, the virtual session has as its overall theme, “Agriculture Food Systems Transformation: From Strategy to Action”.

BREAKING: Morning Mass nixed from June 15 Pope Francis-Biden meeting
By CNA Staff

Vatican City, Jun 14, 2021 / 16:55 pm

President Joe Biden's attendance at early morning Mass with Pope Francis has been nixed from an early plan of the June 15 meeting of both leaders, a reliable Vatican source told CNA.

President Biden, who is in Europe for several high level meetings, is taking off the morning of June 15 to meet Pope Francis as President of the United States for the first time. The President's entourage had originally requested for Biden to attend Mass with the Pope early in the morning, but the proposal was nixed by the Vatican after considering the impact that President Biden receiving Holy Communion from the Pope would have on the discussions the USCCB is planning to have during their meeting starting Wednesday, June 16. The U.S. bishops are slated to vote on creating a committee that would draft a document about Eucharistic coherence.
